    Can anybody explain to me how both CBS and NBC can show that McCain has the lead at 52% compared to Obama's 47% in Michigan, yet both networks have colored the states blue in their online tracking maps.

    I also don't understand how they can project a winner with 0% reporting...

    Idiots aren't made to be understood. They said just a few minutes ago that Arizona was gonna be an embarrasment to Mccain, with 0 percent of the votes in. Wonder how they figured that?

    But those are polls... not returns. It's tightened and now shows 51/49 Obama, but I guess my point is that it's too close to call for one or the other... especially when it's based on polls and not returns.

    I guess I just don't understand politics.

    I don't understand politics either. Once, I ran for dog catcher and won, they put me in charge of the cat house.----------- Go figger.
