McCain +2 in Arizona!

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

From ASU: McCain is ahead just 46 to 44 percent in his home state.

According to poll director Dr. Bruce Merrill, “The race in Arizona is very close. Supporters of both candidates are highly committed to their candidates, with 94 percent of Obama’s supporters and 93 percent of McCain’s supporters indicating that they are firmly committed and won’t change their mind before Election Day.

Pew Poll: Obama +16

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

This is a well respected poll.

In it, Obama is +19 among those who have already voted.

Newsweek: Obama +12

Saturday, October 25, 2008

I remember a while back that fat, drug fiend Rush Limbaugh stated that Obama would need to be up by 10 points in order to win.

Limbaugh was channeling his own bigotry and extrapolating to the American public at large. The logic behind the statement was that people wouldn’t admit that they wouldn’t vote for Obama because he’s black, so the polls would be skewed.

Newsweek at Obama +12, is the latest poll to reflect a double digit lead for Obama. Pew, CBS/NY Times, and NBC/WSJ all show leads of +10 or greater. ABC/WaPo shows +9.

Obama Surging in Battleground States

Thursday, October 23, 2008

New poll from Quinnipiac (+14 in Ohio!):

Florida: Obama 49, McCain 44
Ohio: Obama 52, McCain 38
Pennsylvania: Obama 53, McCain 40

And in a Big Ten Battleground Poll:

Illinois Obama 61% McCain 32%
Indiana Obama 51% McCain 41%
Iowa Obama 52% McCain 39%
Michigan Obama 58% McCain 36%
Minnesota Obama 57% McCain 38%
Ohio Obama 53% McCain 41%
Pennsylvania Obama 52% McCain 41%
Wisconsin Obama 53% McCain 40%

NBC/WSJ: Obama +10

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

The lead continues to grow.

The one candidate whose popularity has fallen is Gov. Palin: 38% see her positively, down from 44% two weeks ago; 47% see her negatively, up 10 points from the last poll. That’s the highest negative rating of the four candidates. Fifty-five percent of voters say Gov. Palin is not qualified to be president if the need arises, up from 50% two weeks ago.

This was the stupidest VP pick in, possibly, all of American history (I’m not that well versed in the subject). If the simple edict for picking a VP is do no harm, then McCain didn’t even get that right. The best part about all of this is that in the parallel universe inhabited by GOP wingnuts, Palin has a good shot to win the nomination in 2012.

Please, please pick her again…

I already can’t wait.

Missouri Poll: Obama +6

Friday, October 17, 2008

He’s doubled his lead there in the last week.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state finds Obama with 52% of the vote while McCain is supported by 46%. Earlier this week, Obama was on top 50% to 47%.

CBS/NY Times: Obama +14

Tuesday, October 14, 2008


Just 7 percent of registered voters say their opinion of McCain has improved recently, while 21 percent say it has gotten worse. The numbers are nearly reversed for Obama: Seventeen percent say their opinion of Obama has improved in recent weeks, while 7 percent say it has declined.

Looks like the Kristol/Rove dirtbag wing of the GOP is failing again.

P.S. Bloomberg/L.A. Times has Obama +9
