    We always hear about voting blocks. Which group do you think can really influence an election?

    NOTE YOU CAN VOTE FOR AS MANY AS YOU WOULD LIKE


    Remember Saltys rule "You vote other, you must explain"

    Endorsements of candidates are going to be important. Those who gave out endorsement during the last Presidential election will probably not be sought so much this time around. I don't lend a lot of credence to endorsement but others will and it will be interesting to see who is going to back who in the next election.

    A lot depends on how close the election is, whether it is local, state or national.

    I would add the JDA, in the Northeast, anyhoo.

    Yep, and the main reason I believe Hillary won't run with Obama.

    In Montana, Tester beat Burns by 2847 votes to claim the senate seat. Stan Jones, the libertarian candidate, recieved 10324 votes. So I guess you could say they swung the election.

    black vote is over rated

    The black vote is over rated. Why? Because the professional and middle class black people vote their paychecks like white people do. The poor black people don't vote same as white trash.
