How sad that within 5 days McCain will be declared ineligible and a few days later the Obama will join him...

I really think Hillary wants The Big O to lose. She has a better chance in 2012 that way.

What about if she's on the ticket in '08?

Fox just said they heard there will be a very significant bounce in the polls in the next couple of days.

Obama never stood a chance with mainstream Americans.  We should see that more and more in the polls as we near election day.

I posted 4 references which say the death rate is lower after Saddam, which one do you take issue with

Further, most Americans’ would put freedom ahead of life, (Live Free or Die) so the death argument is bogus anyways. However, assuming its relevant, the death rate even during the war is lower than under Saddam.

Well- all theories aside- I was outside in the garden and the phone rang..came in to answer and lo and behold- it was Rasmussen!

The questions were all sliding scale- preferences for POTUS, if you had to make a really important decision- would you ask McCain or Obama for advice...what is your impression of Biden, Palin, my governor Crist.

Have I ever missed voting when I’ve had the opportunity..

Education, am I female or male- even if I was voting for the Republican- who did I want to win the Dem nom etc.

Took about 10 minutes.

Friday, August 22, 2008

The latest wave of state-by-state polling, market data and national trends have pushed the Rasmussen Reports’ Electoral College projections as close as our daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

The latest numbers from the Rasmussen Reports Balance of Power Calculator show Obama leading in states with 193 Electoral College votes and McCain ahead in states with 183 Electoral College votes. Previously, Obama had enjoyed a 210–165 advantage.

Currently, states with 135 Electoral College votes are leaning slightly in one way or the other, and three states with a total of 27 votes — Colorado, Nevada and Virginia — are pure toss-ups.

BYE-BYE Obama! The militant is going down.

What happened to the rest of my post?

Wanted to add the the Obamanation has been trending downward since August.

Sunday, September 07, 2008

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday, September 7, shows the race for the White House is tied.

In the first national polling results based entirely on interviews conducted after Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech, Barack Obama gets 46% of the vote and so does John McCain. When “leaners” are included, it’s all even at 48%. Tracking Poll results are released at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time each day and a FREE daily e-mail update is available.

This past Tuesday, Obama’s bounce peaked with the Democrat enjoying a six-percentage point advantage. Before the two conventions were held, Obama had consistently held a one or two point lead over McCain for most of August

I am not sure if you predictions are based on regression analysis or not, but even so there are state to state differences. So I would still like those state by state current polls.

... No way Hillary’s crew would have allowed their candidate to get hammered like the way Obama has been.

ROFLOL.

You mean the way that the Hillary people allowed Obama to hammer them? Cause he did hammer them and he hammered them good.

That is why we are running against Obama and not Hillary.

It sickens me to see that Obama has such a lead in Washington state.

It is the large metropolitan populations around Seattle-Tacoma, Olympia, Vancouver, and Spokane that trend Democrat. Anywhere there are people in large numbers who take government handouts. In the case of Spokane, there are huge numbers of Hispanics, and supposedly a sizable number are illegal aliens here to work in agriculture.

Not quite. They played the race card against the Clintons and the media was in the tank for him. In liberal land those are key. In a general election the right isn’t sensitive to being called racist.

The important thing to correct in terms of these civilian deaths is the cause of the civilian deaths.

The Lancet study — which is probably the most exaggerated estimate we have from the anti/war pro genocide community— estimates that 80-90% of the deaths are the result anti-coalition forces such as Al Qaeda in Iraq.

Loons who cite these studies as evidence against the war, support the killing of innocent Iraqis.

That will strike them as preposterous but is absolutely true. The only credible argument against genocidal intimidation which was being used inside Iraq to stop the emergence of democracy, is American and collaborative Iraqi military force.

By the Left’s own sources, it is not the Coalition that is causing the overwhelming majority of civilian deaths.

Loons who pretend that a suicide bomber who walks into a Mosque and kills 30 FELLOW MUSLIMS is the result of American imperialism is a common rhetorical participant in that killing by falsifying such a claim.

More significantly, the Loon Left is anti Muslim. In refusing to allow American miltiary protection of communities that do not want to be bombed by deranged Islamic Fasicsts like Zarqawi, they also participate in the genocidal agenda of Al Qaeda which primarily means killing tens of thousands of moderate muslims that support the Iraqi government and American security actions.

Anti-war is pro genocide of the Iraqi people. It is jingoism at its very worst.

Obama is an idiot and also brain dead. Why?

That's easy to answer. Biden is suppose to be the person to hatchet Sarah. Instead, Obama selected three women, Hillary and two governors to hatchet Sarah. Hillary said that she will try but instead she feels that she must spend her time getting demo senators re-elected.

See why Obama is an idiot and also brain dead. LMAO

Me too. I like the state by state polls as a check of sorts on the national polls. I'm just saying that unless the national polls are within 2.5 points (as they often are at this point of a competitive election), the map isn't going to mean much.

Undecideds are asking me what I think of McCain-Palin. I like it. Hopefully, they’ll follow my lead. I was waiting for McCain to pick a VP before I would commit. I’m there cuz of pro-life feminist Palin. She completes the ticket beautifully. I’ll continue to disagree w/McCain on illegal immigration.

I have long felt that if mccain/PALIN could take a lead in the polls, it would be pretty much over. Obama has no policies nor a past that he can point to or tout in order to get back into this thing. If the Repubs hold their own in the debates and have a strong GOTV effort, mccain/PALIN should win this thing by upwards of 5%.

I hope that Juans’ health holds out long enough for him to show Sara the rops vis a vis foreign policy.

According to another thread McCain’s doing good in Pennslvania leading amongst blue collar workers 46 to 43 percent.

No Democrat has ever won the Presidency without carrying the Keystone State. And Obama’s elitist comments about the people there being bitter and clinging to God and Guns ain’t helping him very much.

My bet is McCain’s gonna turn Pennslvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota and New Hampshire Red this November. Especially now that Palin’s his running mate.

The more the public learns about Obama, the more they come to realize just how radical he really is.

I’m not sure. But I think that lead will gradually increase once the public learns more about Obama’s more radical positions such as his support for infanticide.

Lets remember one thing, if it wasn’t for Philledalphia and Pittsburg, Pennslvania would be a solid red state. Lets just hope Obamanation keeps putting his foot in his mouth and lets his elitist nature show.

This means nothing. The Democrats easily have 4-8% FRAUD vote built into the big cities of Philadelphia, Detroit, St. Louis, Miami...and probably 8-10% FRAUD vote built into Chicago.

We have to be stronger, imo.

Number will grow higher if we're to believe Brian Wilson of FNC today. He said many pollsters are silently commenting on the sizeable convention bump numbers which will be released shortly... largely attributable to Palin. If this translates into turning purple States red, we're in good stead.

We must work as hard as we can as the MSM/talking heads will do their utmost to upset this ticket. I see the NY Times will lead the pack tomorrow, according to Drudge.
