I wrote this here in 2006, and it is just as relevant in 2008:
Who ARE these entities that “call” the elections before you even get the chance to VOTE? What gives them any power? I’m certainly not. They are merely trying to sway the results on election day by giving potential voters the notion that there is no point to going and actually voting. Don’t empower them–stand up for your right to choose a candidate with your vote! Elections are decided by those who vote; not by those who prognosticate. If anyone says "It's too close to call", I answer, "Who asked you to?"
