Are We Entering an Age of Reason?

A lot of bloggers are already pointing to some Kerry, Kerry favorable exit polls (although the early ones are rarely accurate and no one is quite saying where these came from).

K/B

AZ 45-55

CO 48-51

LA 42-57

MI 51-48

WI 52-48

PA 60-40

OH 52-48

FL 51-48

MICH 51-47

NM 50-48

MINN 58-40

WISC 52-43

IOWA 49-49

NH 57-41

And the Kerry blog folks are loving the early turnout numbers:

- In Florida 33,000 more Democrats have voted than Republicans.

- In Iowa, 45,000 more Democrats have voted than Republicans. According to a Des Moines Register poll we have an 11 point advantage with these voters. 22% are new or sporadic voters.

- In New Mexico 20% more Democrats have voted than Republicans – a 26,000 person advantage. And in Nevada an equal number of Democrats and Republicans have voted in 2004.

While I share the confidence expressed in these real or fake, important or meaningless numbers, there is another story that is suggests that this might be a done deal.

Americans are finally getting over the low carb craze. And it’s just in time. I don’t think I could have taken four more years.

I’m off to get several bagels and place my vote.


Concentration is important!
