If Election Were Held Today, Obama Would Win

 

A new CNN Electoral Map out today that puts Virginia in the hands of Senator Barack Obama has shifted enough electoral votes nationally for him to take the election, now only 20 days away.

New polls in Virginia, a battleground state, now show Senator Barack Obama with a double digit lead. These include CNN's own poll, as well as a host of others.

This once again puts Senator John McCain on the defense in states that the Republicans should have locked down early in this election. CNN does note that this is a "snapshot in time" and there are still 20 days left in the election.

  If elections were held..  
 
before Ron Paul dropped out CNN's polls showed Ron Paul would win. Also becaus3e of Ron Paul Googles stocks went from $300 a share to $700 a share, and plummeted once he dropped out.

So to say Ron Paul is good for the economy is an understatement.

I don't care he isn't running anymore, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

Regan did have trickle down economics and it worked pretty well in his time. However what we have today is crony capitalism and corporatism. Nothing trickle down about it. Its corporate socialism more than anything else really.

So perhaps we can abandon this offshoot of fascist socialism and embrace some real changes. Of course you wont get this in Obama either. If you want real change, you need to get rid of both of these corrupt parties.

I actually donated to his campain. I sent him three gold nuggets, non-perishable food and a survival knife with a compass on the handle.

It's an interesting point, because in general, candidates with solid leads like Obamas' as late as October 15 go on to win the election.

Why do you even participate in news articles related to politics? You have demonstrated nothing but complete ignorance to reality, to the election process, and to the history behind what ultimately leads someone to become President. It's amazing you still feel you need to demonstrate this on a daily basis.

I really try to stay out of the crossfire between cray0la and l'anglais but I do usually read what they both have to say.

Cray0la isn't ignorant. He simply has utter contempt for anything with the potential of negatively affecting his bottom line and he has no problem attacking with half truths, misrepresentations and flat out lies.

It seems whenever he gets called on something where he is clearly in the wrong he just stops discussing it and moves on to the next attack.

I think crayola may secretly be a republican.

  Well said Cray0la  
 
Some of you guys have unneccesary hostility to someone who was just stating a fact.

LOL! I wouldnt be surprised if he actually was one of John McCain's aides or worked within the party somehow.
 
  by: slavefortheman     10/16/2008 07:57 PM     
  @VermiciousG --- Oh, typo.  
 
Did I say Ignorant? I actually meant Republican. Sorry.

  From the outside...  
 
All I ever see when a presidential election is on the way is a constant load of analysis and declaration that someone is going to win...

Truly, it's a joke. 'Polls' always come out wrong, and elections just seem a farce now.

If you followed the media, exit polls we were told about, etc, after the first term of G.W.Bush there would have been no possible way that he would have been elected again. Granted there is plenty of commentary to say he wasn't voted in and cheated, but that's neither here nor there. It was a rock-solid thing in the media that Bush wouldn't have a chance.

It's all BS until the actual election day - anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to sell you something.
