People always want to maintain a good opinion of themselves. That means that what they tell you about who they voted for and who they actually did, sometimes don't match. Oh look how progressive I am. I told the pollster I'm going to vote for the black guy. Get into the damn booth though and it can be a completely different story. Some individuals also don't trust pollsters and will avoid them like the plague. I just can't believe that no one took any of this into consideration beforehand.
Feh. Overall, I'm sort of torn about the whole thing. I think I can deal with an Obama presidency as long as he holds to what he's been claiming in stump speeches. It might be nice to actually get some more bipartisanship going for a while and a little less acrimony. Of course, I also think that Hillary is far more likely to be beaten in novemember, so maybe it'd be better for her to win the nomination. Feh. I guess I should just be happy that there's never going to be any chance Edwards will be elected.
