LOL...60-40 range. Says who? You've managed to narrow down conspiracy to an empirical science now?

The objective in this kind of conspiracy would be simple: win the election. And the less untoward action possible, the better. For the simple reason that every unnecessary action (in this example, votes "flipped" or whatever), is just that much more loose end that could be caught. Not rocket science.

Anyway, personally, I don`t think this kind of thing makes an iota of difference. Even if they had a pure smoking gun, it would be ultimately meaningless...there would still be a slew of apologists and it would still be covered up. America`s obviously on the road to partisan implosion regardless of "facts", so hey.

" A landslide would be much more conspicuous"

Yes. If there was a conspiracy, it would be much more likely to fall in the 60%-40% range.

A close election often turns people to look for reasons why they lost - such as conspiracies or what not. A land slide leads to a, "WTF" reaction.

In short, it isn't worth risking an election to cheat for a few thousand votes.

dog_or_man brought up the funding cuts. I just mentioned that it was both sides that cut it.

BBC? please dont tell me you think just because its not American you think its fair.

I absolutley agree that this partisan crap is ruining America. But it was the democrats who said they will fight anything this administration attempts to do, with the reasoning that it will win over American voters. I like to consider myself independant, I will vote democratic if there is a good candidate. As I sit and watch the world go round I see the Dems pulling away from America and its people and doing all they can to create contraversey instead partisinship.
