Bad news for McCain all over the map.
Four surveys conducted by Quinnipiac University for the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post, fielded June 17-24
Colorado: Obama 49 - McCain 44, n=1,351 likely voters, margin of sampling error of +/- 2.7 percent
Michigan: Obama 48 - McCain 42, n=1,411 likely voters, margin of sampling error of +/- 2.6 percent
Minnesota: Obama 54 - McCain 37, n=1,572 likely voters, margin of sampling error of +/- 2.5 percent
Wisconsin: Obama 52 - McCain 39, n=1,537 likely voters, margin of sampling error of +/- 2.5 percent
It is time, McCain!
I don’t think a McCain roadmap includes any of those states.
These guys finished near the absolute bottom of polster rankings in 2006.
It’s only bad news if the election is today.
While hardly surprising, I find it very amusing that a state like MI — a state that seems to be still suffering from a malaise inspired by Jimmy Carter — actually thinks a socialist like Obama can help them.
It’s still mighty early.
Back in 1988, Dukakis had an 18 point lead on GHWB right after the Democratic convention in mid summer.
Polls at this juncture can be misleading and, in the case of this outfit, downright inaccurate.
The Repubs still have a chance to ditch McCain and get a real candidate. Get on with it, Repubs, or be prepared to witness the end of our party.
Whistling past the graveyard. What makes you think Captain Queeg is going to look any better in November? Between now and then the left wing media is going to pull put all the stops for Hussein. If we had a real conservative, or a candidate with some balls, we could fight them. McCain is no conservative, and he wont fight back.
At this point in 1992, Bush had an 8 point lead over Clinton. (Of course, Perot had a 2 point lead on Bush.)
All went Kerry in 2004 I believe... Quinnipiac sht pole to boot. However, only 6 in MI says something whether it’s Quinnipiac or not...
“It’s getting late mighty early around here.”
Nothing too worrisome in these numbers. Bambi got a slight bounce after Hillary! dropped out. The numbers are already settling back down.
Add to that the fact that Quinnipiac is pretty good in the Northeast but terrible everywhere else, and this particular set of numbers means pretty much zero.
Obama has a slight lead right now just like virtually all Democrat candidates do in the summer. If McCain plays this right, and if the GOP-leaning 527s carry his water for him, he still has an excellent chance of winning this in November.
Quinnipiac University pollsters are a propaganda organ for the Dems.
Hey. I’m no McCainiac. I’m an abstainiac!
Chris Matthews has Obama up by ‘hundreds and hundreds’ of points.
This type of poll at this point is absolute garbage.
Meaningless. and wrong.
I’m surprised that Obama isn’t leading by more after all the free publicity he gets from the main stream media he should have at least a 15 point lead in every state.
All things considered, I think the “Messiah” is doing poorly.
Better resurrect more dead voters to vote for him in November.
Actually the bigger Obama’s lead is the easier it will be to turn it around on him.
