Skip to comments.McCain Surges in New Montana Poll
Posted on 09/09/2008 5:15:52 PM PDT by 11th_VA
A poll released Tuesday by Rasmussen Reports has John McCain up 11 points over Barack Obama, 53 percent to 42 percent, compared to the one point advantage he held in a similar poll conducted at the end of July.
McCain is now viewed favorably by 60% of Montana voters, little changed from 59% in July. However, the number with a Very Favorable opinion of the Republican hopeful jumped from 26% in July to 35% today.
Obama earns positive reviews from 50% of Montana voters, down slightly from 53% in July.
Sarah Palin is viewed favorably by 59% of Montana voters, a figure that includes 44% with a Very Favorable opinion of her.
In Montana, Biden is viewed favorably by 44% and unfavorably by 47%.
55% of voters in Montana say McCain made the right choice in picking Palin as his running mate. Just 35% say Obama made the right choice.
Sen. Max Baucus holds a comfortable 30+ point lead over Republican challenger Bob Kelleher.
With only a handful of polls conducted in Montana with fairly large fluctuationsObama had a five point lead July 1its tough to gauge how accurate this one is, but it would appear that adding Palin to the ticket boosted McCain, considering that 44% view her very favorably. It could also be a Palin-fueled convention bounce, typically short-lived.
But it doesnt bode well for Obama in Montana, one in a trio of traditionally red statesNorth Dakota and Indiana, toowith high ratios of working-class Democrats where the campaign is going full steam ahead, as campaign manager David Plouffe said during a briefing with reporters today.

Amount Averages To $1 Million Per Hour Spent Here
Mike Flannery CHICAGO (CBS) ― Republican John McCain raised about $5 million in Chicago Monday night, or about $1 million for each hour he spent in Democrat Barack Obama's home town.
This might be why...
THE REAL OBAMA COUNTRY

It is a shame we cannot get rid of draft dodging Baucus.
Life in Obama’s district:
Barama will carry three counties in Montana, maybe four. ‘Bout the same as sKerry.
Speaking of Montana, what is former Gov. Mark Racicot involved with these days?
Tazewell county, where I live, does anyway. I am not so sure about Cook county.
Damn. Just...damn. McCain is opening this thing up WIDE. Or, should I say, Sarah Palin is.
Can someone please explain to me why Montana was even in play to begin with? I can’t imagine that many socialist whackos living in Montana...
A lot of socialist whackos have bought ranches and invested in ski resorts in Montana. Ted Turner is just one example. MoveOn.org bought a senate seat for John Tester, who has been somewhat of a disappointment to them.
Thats what I don’t understand. I’ve always thought that people who lived in Montana were independent and liked their freedoms. I saw the Gov. speak for a minute during the Dem. convention and was really surprised.
That Gov was picked because he simulates a conservative in appearance.
DINO trumps RINO
(conservative trumps all)
