When Rove speaks, be very afraid - Poll

     Karl Rove said today that the outcome of the election is so unpredictable that "events" will probably be the deciding factor.  It is reasonable to suppose that the "events" may also be called "October surprises".  It is also reasonable to suppose that they will be staged, or instigated, by forces favorable to the Republicans.  This poll invites you to imagine the possibility that the above two suppositions are correct, and askes for your best guess about likely "event" that might occur in the next two months before the election.

Start hostilities with Russia over Poland and Georgia
