I love it when they call, and I don't wait for the questions, I just start right in telling them what I think. But they never let me finish.

Maybe some people (i.e. just enough to throw the results) aren't voting for who they like, but voting for who they think will "balance the scales" and create a moderate government.

That's possibly a side effect of the constant harping that Obama is some kind of radical Marxist, even though when look at on a case-by-case basis, his individual positions on issues are within the majority of popular opinion and he would've been consider right-down-the-middle a decade ago.

In other words, most "swing voters" who decide elections are just a bunch of gullible fucks who buy into whatever media narrative is being thrown at them without displaying any critical thinking skills as to whether or not that narrative is true or not.
