NEW NC POLL:
According to the live telephone survey of 600 likely General Election voters, Obama leads McCain 47-42 among those who initially voiced support for a candidate. However, when undecided voters are asked which way they lean, Obama’s lead becomes to 48-45. Libertarian candidate Bob Barr receives two percent of the vote. Seven percent of voters remained undecided.
“Since John McCain has begun to campaign in North Carolina, his numbers seem to be improving,” said Francis De Luca, Executive Director of the Civitas Institute. “He’s been able to pick up two points on Obama in the past two weeks according to our polling.”
A gender gap appears to be developing as female voters break for Obama 54-36, but McCain holds a 9 point advantage with male voters.
February – McCain 46, Obama 36
April – McCain 48, Obama 39
May – McCain 44, Obama 39
June – McCain 45, Obama 41, Barr 2
July – McCain 43, Obama 40, Barr 2
August – McCain 46, Obama 40, Barr 2
September – McCain 45, Obama 45, Barr 2
October 8th – Obama 48, McCain 43, Barr 2
FUNNY THING IS CIVITAS SOOO HATED THE LAST RESULT THEY HAD TO DO A NEW POLL 2 WEEKS LATER RATHER THAN THEIR MONTHLY POLL - LMAO.

With McConnel dropping like a stone, can Cornyn be far behind in Texas. It will be a nerve wracking week at the NSCC.

New Pew Poll O 53 M 39 /...Say Pew Boomcrap
Glad to see that McCain has widened his lead in Kentucky...this was a key state for the Obama campaign to win and now there's no way he can pull it off.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY THE SAME...
SERIOUSLY - THE RIGHT WING IS ITCHING FOR A WAR. SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET HURT, AND THIS WILL ALL LAY AT THE FEET OF THOSE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WHO DID NOTHING TO STOP IT. HISTORY IS BEING WRITTEN. THERE IS NO HIDING FROM IT. MY SON AND I SAW PEOPLE IN MEMPHIS AND POLITICIANS TALKING ABOUT ELVIS BEFORE HE WENT ON ED SULLIVAN, THEY WERE CALLING HIM A COMMUNIST AND A N- LOVER! THOSE COMMENTS ARE THERE FOR ALL POSTERITY.
SO TOO THEY HATE FILLED CROWDS HELD BACK BY NATIONAL GUARDSMEN AS CHILDREN TRIED TO INTEGRATE A PUBLIC SCHOOL. YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN MAY ONE DAY KNOW WHAT SIDE OF HISTORY YOU WERE ON. THINK CAREFULLY ABOUT HOW YOU PROCEED.

Are you as dumb as you seem?
Wow Pew has a huge sample size - 2382 LVs.
This has landslide written all over it. And the analysis was very comprehensive. Boom must be on a suicide watch.

Although the race seems fairly close, I think McCain is starting to get this election wrapped up. I really don't see Obama having much of a chance, any way you slice it.

Dont let alankeyEsisawesome fool you, he's an imposter posing as alanKEYSisawesome because the original person now supports democrats and alankeyEsisawesome cant come to terms with it so he has to pose as the other one to make sure people dont believe he no longer supports McCain.

Rachel Maddow is proving that the American people are tired of people yelling at them and each other. It's no wonder her show is doing so well. She's simply calm and logical and often lets events speak for themselves without forcing you to agree through excessive dogmatism.

Last poll had Noriega down by 6, previous poll had him down by 7. They really need to start polling the snot out of this race. The DNC needs to put something into it. Noriega has not run the best campaign, but that makes the closeness of the TX Senate race even more remarkable. Cornyn has tried to coast, but he has not been able to pull away.
I will dance on McConnell's political grave if he goes down next month.

for those interested bush beat kerry 59.55% to 39.69% in ky.
I will laugh hysterically if McConnell goes down hard.
Posted on October 21, 2008 3:33 PM
Come on Dems...lets pick up another Senate seat! and btw this was not a key Obama state.he never considered it at all until recently.
Posted on October 21, 2008 3:59 PM
So now Obama is trailing in KY and TX by about the same margin as McCain in PA? Oh yeah - that PA strategy is going to work real well.
Posted on October 21, 2008 4:13 PM
So McCain has a bigger margin to overcome in PA than Obama has to overcome in KY...
...i cant feel bad for McCain but if i was religious I would have to call this divine intervention.

Watch McShame love for PA
