Well, according to www.electoral-vote.com you all are "weak Kerry", meaning leaning that way, but it's tenuous.......

I'm in CA, NOBODY has come here (or near me anyway) to my knowledge......We're typically a blue state, but I know where I am, it's a RED pocket! That's why we needed TWO Kerry signs, one in the window, AND one in the yard! :-)

I check it daily, but be warned, it swings around a LOT! Yeah, we're even an island in our FAMILY! My side of the family is staunchly conservative (my sister is the most puzzling--denouncing Democratic social programs---while receiving WIC benefits!!!! HELLO???); but we have mostly converted dh's family.....my FIL is a "Vietnam Veteran For Kerry"....

We're all Dem's except for my brother and his wife (he served in Iraq and has always been ultra-conservative).

I heard on the news yesterday that states like yours were being bombarded with ad after after, most of the nasty.


We aren't getting that either.


So not only do we not get the visits, we don't get those ads either ;-0

I didn't really notice how "weird" this was until I was in Pennsylvania over the weekend and was subjected to an endless run of political advertising.

Thank my Mom - she has been campaigning her a$$ off doing phone bank and organizing volunteers.


It's so weird though that the polls are all over the place.
