Super Tuesday, February 5th!!

By Nicole Wilkinson
According to Wikipedia, "In the United States, Super Tuesday commonly refers to the Tuesday in early February or March of a presidential election year when the greatest number of states hold primary elections to select delegates to national conventions at which each party's presidential candidates are officially nominated. More delegates can be won on Super Tuesday than on any other single day of the primary calendar, and accordingly, candidates seeking the presidency traditionally must do well on this day to secure their party's nomination. In 2008, Super Tuesday is February 5; 24 states will hold primaries or caucuses on this date, with 52 percent of all pledged Democratic Party delegates and 41 percent of the total Republican Party delegates at stake".

As an educator, one of the most irritating situations is to have a biased informant. As a news media representative, teacher, or anyone representing information, you MUST be the facilitator of knowledge, WITHOUT showing biases. It is up to the individual to make an informed, educated decision with the given information. At my house, there are a lot of stronger biases towards certain candidates, but we are not informing anyone of our intentions except for the cats. My favorite non-biased poll group is http://www.pollster.com/. Unlike politico.com which is very liberal and represented by the LA Times or the conservative Fox News polls, pollster.com represents what I believe to be the most unbiased polls around.
