Posted on 07/27/2008 8:01:27 PM PDT by Alter Kaker
A new Research 2000 national poll finds Sen. Barack Obama leading Sen. John McCain, 51% to 39%, with Bob Barr getting 3% and Ralph Nader getting 2%.
These polls are swinging like John Edwards.
Who did the survey, likely German voters????
Ralph Nader 2%, what’s this? Cynthia McKinney is the Green Party candidate.
Yeah, like Newsweek this will suddenly reset next week.
All I have to say is - Kerry 2004.
Nader’s running as an Independent, as he did in 2004. He left the green party, my guess is because it’s too “mainstream.” (snort)
I’m sure the poll is skewed.
All that said, with the MSM functioning as Pravda West, it’s hard to stop the triumphal entry, isn’t it?
Prepare to be inundated by these types of polls for at least a week or so.
Must be a poll of Democratic precinct workers.
Sure doesn’t sound like the results that Rasmussen got on Saturday.
Lord. Save. Us.
Obama will make an awful President.

Prepare to be inundated by these types of polls for at least a week or so.
When Obama polls ahead, they'll release a different one of these polls literally every half hour.
If, by some miracle, McCain gets the lead, the polls will stop dead.
I trust the AOL straw poll or Zogby the Arab more than this Bravo Sierra poll.
Rasmussen's latest polls has Obama leading by five -- 49-44
Gallup has Obama up by nine, 49-40
Polls can be and are easily skewed. The only one that counts for real is in November.
Other polls in individual states are showing McCain overtaking and passing Obama...and this poll shows Obama with a huge national lead.
This poll is nowhere near reality.
We know the media is in the tank for Obama and you can bet that many pollsters that serve them are also wading in the Obama water tank.
Could Obama be leading? Sure.
Is he leading by double digits? No frickin way.
It is time to irritate the neighbors
BS, enough said. Each poll they take gives him a bigger lead. Rasmussen has him by 5 points, Gallup by 9 and now this big piece of crap poll. There is now way 51 percent of Americans favor this phony POS.
Not this crap again. All Presidential elections are by state not nationally. If nationally CA, NY, IL would have too much sway in an election.
You cannot do a national poll on the Presidential election and have it mean squat.
Never heard of 'em!
It pains me to admit, but what do you expect? Obama’s foreign excursion was almost flawless, meanwhile McCain was lost in the supermarket. Petreaus 2012 is looking better every day.
It’s Bob Who?
What the article forgot to mention was all polling took place at fifty-seven graveyards across America.
A Garbage Poll.
Dems who buy this crap are only ultimately fooling only themselves, quite dangerously so. Obama may win, but not by ridiculous margins.
Now I see by the news articles about a week ago that Cynthia McKinney is the Green Party's nomination for President. What happened to Ralphie? Whose ticket is he really running on.
I considered him for awhile because I saw a recent program on PBS that showed Dem after Dem still seething with rage that Nader caused Gore to lose FL to Bush in 2000, setting the stage for "Unites We Stand" after 9-11-2001.
I've been holding my nose so hard, so many times since Reagan that I'm gettin caluses and scar tissue on my nostrils!!! I despise these mugwump Repubs more than liberal Dems simply because the RINO's should absolutely know better!!!
I dont trust polls much
All I know is I will be placing my vote to keep this POS out of office
Since Jul 16, 2008
Sure. Uh huh. Whatever you say.
Have you seen the “snob” graphic?
No details given in original article - when done? - adults, registered voters, likely voters? - sample size? - very probably a crap poll done to influence the vote rather than predict it........
The polls mean nothing at this stage of the game. Wait till October with its coming “Big Surprise” Then watch the polls.
His Afghanistan trip was a farce, ignoring troops on the ground for pure D photo ops. His trip to Iraq blatantly attempted to coop the PM into agreement with him requiring thr PM to issue a statement clarifying things.
He spurned our wounded troops, he consistantly waffled on and attempted to deny his own position on Iraq and the surge and misrepresent McCains.
he blatantly copted one of the most Holy Sites in Judaism and has imbettered manby of that faith over it.
His empty speech in Germany was laughed at and mocked by the SPiegel, and Germans who were in attendance.
Nope...I would say it was pretty flawed alright.
Suck it in.
The RINOs are nothing but political whores that are out only for themselves and have no beliefs or philosophy.
They are worse than democrats.
The perfect example is Pete Wilson.
The only way he ever decided how to vote on anything was to take his what’s good for Pete wilson finger, stick it in his mouth, hold it in the air to determine how to vote.
Research 2000 was the third most accurate in state polling in 2004, behind Rasmussen and Survey USA. In 2004, R2K made predictions in 13 states, and in 7 Battleground States. R2K got 12 calls right, and 1 wrong, and was off by an average of 5.15 points. One of their final polls was the closest for that state ( in a Battleground State), and none of their polls were invalidated for being more than 10 points off. In the Battleground States, R2K got 6 right and 1 wrong, and was off by an average of 4.57 points.
EGAD. Will she be naming Dellums as her running mate?
Don't get too distressed over your vote--Obama's leading McCain by some 25 points in California. Our vote isn't gonna mean much, anyway.
I expect the “big surprise” next month, something to take out Obama and replace him with Clinton, along with a built-in reason for Blacks to stay on board. Something like having a “love child” by a White woman.
You must be reading the wrong polls! /s
You’re both ignoring my qualifier of “almost”. Obviously mistakes were made, but as far as perception, it did its job. Those of us interested enough to look behind the headlines were not as impressed.
By the way it’s gonna get really tiresome if you people keep referencing the fact that I’m new here. I think you’ll notice I’ve mentioned it a lot.
Perception, no matter how the liberals want to spin it, is not reality.
The reality was that his trip was pure, unadulterated political opportunism and tripe, rife with gaffes.
That's the reality and it is a reality that is catching up with him...as well it should.
The whole idea of these skewed polls is to persuade fence-sitters and herd-followers to fall into the Obama camp, under the logic that “everyone else is voting for him, so maybe I should too”. Of course, it will work on some people, but as election day approaches and more of Hussein’s convictions and past is exposed, such an approach by the MSM will have lesser and lesser effect.
Bob f**king Barr. God I hate that ACLU assclown.
They've got 'till October to bring in bin Laden. When they do, the euphoria will silence the left and tank Barry's pimpularity.
I expect the surprise next month to remove Obama as the nominee in a way that keeps the Blacks on board. I expect the next big surprise to be some of the stories about McCain’s wife. The little nips and cuts on McCain will begin before long.
