Dont let polls that make Obamas victory look definate keep you home on election day. Misleading stats such as a 99% win chance that has been floating around are based entirely off of phone polls! Remember the republicans will be voting in record numbers because of how behind they are, if Democratic voters are too cocky this election will be lost to another 4 years of economic mismanagement by the Republican party. Today I read in a newspaper that a poll of Calgarians showed a 4 to 1 support for Obama over McCain, how can this be? Calgary is the Conservative epicenter for Canada, Stephen Harpers riding is like a block from my house! However the free world agrees that Obama is the right pick, our only concern towards the election really is the economy. It affects us all, and the reason the entire world prefers Obama over McCain is simple, we know McCain's platform will cause the world economy to keep falling. Regardless of my opinion though, go vote. Even if you are voting McCain, lets not have the most important election of our generation be decided by less than the majority of the population due to apathy. Your vote matters! From all of us who cant vote but care so much that the United States recovers from this recession, please vote! At very least even if the Republicans win, I want to feel that the election wasnt lost to laziness. Especially this crowd, which is young and influential, you guys are the big stakeholders here. The long term is paved by decisions made years ago, finally the last 8 years have caught up to you, It's time to have a president who can restore things to how they were a decade ago under Clinton. We need prosperity! We dont need tax cuts for the top 2%, so make your voice heard and get out and vote!
ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN A SWING STATE!
