if i am a democrat, and i hear my guy is ahead in all polls

on the other hand if i knew he was behind, i'd go vote to help him out
No. People who have decided to vote are going to vote. Those who have decided not to vote will not vote. Historically a portion of undecided likely voters will choose who they think is going to win. If the media makes it seem as if Obama will win, people will tend to vote for him if they aren't sure of their vote. People innately want to be on the winning side.
