Fan, Meet Blade

With the feces about to hit the oscillating blade in just over 48 hours, here's a bunch of links.

KERRY WINS: Or rather, the Packers beat the Redskins in Washington, and if trends hold, that means the incumbent is out and the challenger is in. I know at least one 'Skins fan who's delighted.

BUSH WINS: According to Scott Ott, with a little help from the Supremes.

BUSH WINS: Newsweek says things are breaking for Bush.

IT'S TIED: Zogby disagrees.

PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!: Osama admits Al Qaeda is hurting.
Officials said that in the 18-minute long tape of which only six minutes were aired on the al-Jazeera Arab television network in the Middle East on Friday bin Laden bemoans the recent democratic elections in Afghanistan and the lack of violence involved with it.

On the tape, bin Laden also says his terror organization has been hurt by the U.S. military's unrelenting manhunt for him and his cohorts on the Afghan-Pakistani border.
INDEED: Instapundit.
READER DAVID FROST emails that he used to not be able to figure out where I stood politically, and that he's disappointed to see me abandoning ambiguity to support Bush. Well, Bush isn't my ideal candidate, but elections are about making choices and being counted. I've chosen to support Bush because the Democrats have left me with no choice, given the importance I place upon the war. And I'm damned unhappy with them for doing that.
KERRRY WINS: Electoral-vote.com has it Kerry283, Bush 246.

BUSH WINS: ElectoralProjection.com has it Bush 286, Kerry 252 in it's tracking numbers, but issues a final state-by state prediction of Bush 356, Kerry 182.

BUSH WINS: Vodkapundit posts a map that tracks the TradeSports.com state by state numbers -- Bush 286, Kerry 252.

IT'S TIED: Fox News agrees with Zogby.

BUSH WINS (take THAT Redskins): From today's WaPo.
Since 1956 the Weekly Reader has polled its student subscribers, and the result has anticipated the election's outcome 11 out of 12 times. This year over 60 percent picked President Bush, and although a rival student poll by Nickelodeon produced the opposite result, the margin was smaller. Commenting on this troubling discrepancy in the data, Goldman Sachs advised its clients, "We tend to favor Weekly Reader given its longer track record and the fact that its participants tend to be younger and more reflective of their parents who will actually be making the decision."
TAKE A POLL: The Mystery Pollster asks readers to take his own poll. In other news, he announces a new voter for the 2022 Congressional elections. And yes, voters are kinda sorta breaking.

REPUBLICANS SHOULD VOTE FOR KERRY!: Whizbang finds a silver lining in a Kerry victory.

IT'S TIED: Real Clear Politics doesn't pick a clear winner.

And what do I think? Sheez, but I don't have a friggin' clue. Or is that fricken' clue? Help me out here -- throw me a bone!
