My Ducats My Daughter Open Thread

The Giants and the Raiders are both on television tonight. One game starts at 5:30 and the other one at 7:15 pm. The Giants are in playoff contention and this is the Raiders’ home opener against division foe San Diego.

I guess I should pray that the Giants don’t go to extra innings.

Y’all keep it down during the games.

    Husband got two tickets to the game from a friend. He and 15 year old son must be having a great time at the game. I am having a great time drinking wine, skyping with my football fan daughter in college in Atlanta, and chatting with you guys.

    Angels have been on a tear for the last week. Tonight is against the Oakland A’s who theyust beat soundly in the next 3 games in order to wrest the wildcard spot. They just might do it.

    Go Angels!

    More on polling, from Ace. This is just too funny. I keep hearing that Romney is up BIG with Independents, so how can all these polls be so close? I mean geez, Indies are almost 1/3 of the voting public these days. Wellllll, here’s one way:

    CNN, Meanwhile… has Obama over 50%, at 52%, but I’ve now been told by two people that if you subtract out the number of Democrats and Republicans they cop to (Democrats +5%), it turns out they only contacted 37 independents.

    Not 37%. 37 total.

    Among those 37, Romney’s up 54-40. But then again: 37 of them.

      LOL! I know, it’s crazy.

      More on this CNN poll. Sheesh, talk about your thumb on the scale!

      Not only is the D/R/I split at 44/34/22, that’s +10 Dems and 5% bigger Dem turnout than 2008, but blacks are 21% of the sample. They were 12% in 2008. And if it’s true that only 37 Independents were polled, then their error margin is so large that the entire poll is nothing more than random noise skewed toward Dems.

      New WaPo poll out tonight — Obama’s “bounce” was short lived. Everything tied up even by WaPo.

      WaPo/ABC poll (9/7 to 9/9)

      Obama 49 Romney 48 (LV)


      D 33 (94 B 6 R)
      R 27 (6 B 91 R)
      I 36 (43 B 54 R)

      Romney leads big among Independents.

      Nonetheless, remember — until the final weeks (when pollsters worry about their reputations, as everyone only remembers the final polls), these polls are being manipulated to set the narrative/keep people watching/reading, etc. The only poll that counts is ACTUAL VOTERS on ELECTION DAY.

      • angienc says:

        Also, these national polls are doubly worthless because of the fact that we don’t elect presidents by popular vote, but by the EC.

        It’s true the WaPo poll has Obama up 11 in “toss up states” but the poll doesn’t even cite which states it is counting as “toss ups” AND averaging them all together like the poll does hides the *real* story there as well.

    Either the Secret Service guys were sound asleep on this or it was carefully planned and scheduled in advance.


  12. myiq2xu says:

    Giants are down by 1 with 2 out in the 9th.

    • DM says:

      People who don’t vote are leaning towards Obama.

      Barack Obama has emerged from the nominating conventions in his best position against Mitt Romney since spring, a 50-44 percent race among registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. But Romney recovers to a virtual dead heat among those most likely to vote, keeping the contest between them wide open.


      As noted, though, among likely voters – people who say they’re both registered and certain to vote – the race squeezes shut at 49-48 percent, Obama-Romney, essentially unchanged since before the conventions (+2 Romney then, +1 Obama now, well within sampling error.) That means that Romney’s supporters express greater intention to vote – a challenge for Obama’s ground game, and a suggestion that the race could come down to turnout.

    Fucking Raiders!

  14. 49erDweet says:

    What was that other team in silver and black? The team that played the last 50 minutes?

    Was great watching the 2013 Raiders until they left the stadium deep
    into the first quarter.
