Skip to comments.Montana: Obama Leads McCain By Five (Rasmussen Poll)
Posted on 07/03/2008 6:05:08 PM PDT by NYC Republican
Barack Obama is leading John McCain by five percentage points in Montana. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state shows Obama attracting 48% of the vote while McCain earns 43%.
In April, the numbers were reversed with McCain leading 48% to 43%. That was before Obama clinched the Democratic nomination and defeated Hillary Clinton by fifteen points in Montana. Fifty percent (50%) of Montana Democrats want Clinton named as Obamas running mate. Just 29% of all Montana voters would like to see Clinton as the Vice Presidential nominee.
Against McCain, Obama leads among voters under 50, including a twenty-seven point lead among voters under 30. McCain leads among those over 50. Obama is supported by 89% of Montana Democrats while McCain gets the vote from 85% of Republicans.
Twenty-five percent (25%) of Montana voters say McCain is too old to be President while 42% say Obama is too inexperienced.
It would be truly stunning if Obama could turn Montana into a competitive state this November. George W. Bush won Montanas 3 Electoral College Votes by twenty percentage points in 2004 and by twenty-five points four years earlier. Even Bob Dole managed to win Montana, albeit by a narrow 44% to 41% margin (Ross Perot picked up 14% of the vote).
The last Democrat to win Montana was Bill Clinton in 1992. He did so with 38% of the vote. The first President Bush got 35% of the Montana vote while Ross Perot picked up 26%.

And when people become THIS freaking STUPID and inattentive to their freedoms, THIS is the candidate they deserve.
1 minute satirical Obama video here:
Hurry before some diversity loving (RIGHT!) Obamaniac at YouTube pulls it.
We're going to be OK, the greatest generation hasn't left yet, and they still have work to do. You'll see.
America is so screwed.
“If we lose Montana, were looking at a 40-state blowout loss... Maybe more”
I said it when he won the nomination, I stand by it.
A loss of Mondalian proportions. The Repubs, in all their “wisdom” will take the drubbing and learn the wrong lesson and tack even further leftward, losing election after election. Eventually they will have driven all of us traitorous conservatives from the party. They will not die over night, they don’t have the ba!!s to call it like it is and go quietly into the dark night, they will have to be starved to death, slowly. Only then can us traitorous conservatives create an actual conservative party as the mere Republicans join the Whigs on the ash heap where they quite frankly belong.
“Sure would be nice if the GOP would have nominated a better candidate.”
Sure would be nice if the GOP would have nominated a candidate.
“He may very well wind up winning, but tracking 25 points behind Bush, at this stage, is really troubling”
Bush wasn’t despised by conservatives. At least not back then.
That’s a good chunk of it...
