The question coming up then sadoldgirl Oct 2014 #32
Why do you think she loses to Jeb? wyldwolf Oct 2014 #37
Probably the same reasons you think that Warren would lose to him... cascadiance Oct 2014 #39
There are polls showing Clinton stomps Jeb wyldwolf Oct 2014 #40
Just the person that the corporate media running those polls want to push! cascadiance Oct 2014 #42
oh, you subscribe to the Mitt Romney school of polling wyldwolf Oct 2014 #50
So... You think that I follow a belief of Romney that Warren might stomp Jeb Bush?... cascadiance Oct 2014 #61
you just professed a belief polls are rigged. Mitt Romney, 2012. wyldwolf Oct 2014 #62
So... You think that I believe that a "liberal media" has the polls rigged against corporatists? cascadiance Oct 2014 #64
"corporate media running those polls want to push!" - You believe the polls are rigged. Romney, 2012 wyldwolf Oct 2014 #65
So... Are you saying that Romney believes that the *CORPORATE MEDIA* had the polls rigged? cascadiance Oct 2014 #68
Romney and his ilk claimed the 2012 polls were rigged against him. You're denying that happened?? wyldwolf Oct 2014 #69
How does that have ANYTHING to do with what I said!? cascadiance Oct 2014 #70
You said the media is pushing one person in particular. That they're rigging the polls. wyldwolf Oct 2014 #71
If they know that real UNRIGGED polls support THEIR candidates (Clinton)... cascadiance Oct 2014 #76
Simple. The polls are not rigged. wyldwolf Oct 2014 #77
So, just NOT having a poll on a someone is "rigging that poll".... cascadiance Oct 2014 #123
evidence "the process is rigged"? wyldwolf Oct 2014 #124
I've always stated that it is my BELIEF that it is rigged... cascadiance Oct 2014 #125
and that belief isn't based on evidence? wyldwolf Oct 2014 #132
It's believed on by the FACT that most of our media is owned by a handful of corporations! cascadiance Oct 2014 #141
which doesn't prove polls are being rigged! wyldwolf Oct 2014 #143
I DID NOT SAY THE POLLS WERE RIGGED! cascadiance Oct 2014 #145
YES YOU DID! lol! wyldwolf Oct 2014 #146
I guess wyldwolf doesn't understand what constitutes poll rigging! GOT IT! cascadiance Oct 2014 #147
Just referring to your words. wyldwolf Oct 2014 #148
I am too... cascadiance Oct 2014 #149
