Quinnipiac: Obama Holds National Lead -- Political Wire
Obama's leading among blacks?
More importantly, among women.
Not to mention the fact that Obama supporters are out enrolling MacFans 2 and 3 to 1... including swing states... these new enrollees dont show up on any of the big national polls... In fact I was in a strategy session last night where concern was voiced that there are going to be so many new and firsttime voters that our voter info people are going to be overwhelmed on election day...
It's only gonna get worse for McCain. Especially if he keeps saying dumb shit like the economy is still fundamentally strong, only to backpeddle later and say that what he meant was that the American worker was still productive.
This guy is toast...and I'll toast to that!
actually, the size of his lead among women is slightly smaller than is usual for the democratic candidate. in the past, it's been from 15-30%, IIRC.
frankly, i'm amazed it's still a contest at this point.
me too actually.... Obama should be trouncing McCain and I think as we get closer we'll see him begin to pull away.
Obama has to work harder to gain people's confidence and trust 1) because he was a virtual unknown until 2004 and 2) sad as it is to say, because there is still an underlying prejudice in this country. But he's slowly gaining the people's confidence and IMO that's more important than just blind trust in someone because that kind of trust and confidence, hard won over time, is more lasting.
McCain is killing his own campaign too so that helps.

I guess women voters aren't as stupid as McCain thought.
i meant when Democrats win, silly.
