There’s Inexperience You Can Believe In … Majority Polled Think Obama is Too Inexperienced to Lead … McCain is Ready to Lead
Think this question won’t be on people’s minds right before they select a candidate?
Wonder why Barack Obama and his surrogates have been attacking Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin on her experience as well as everything else under the sun? Ever wonder why Barack does not take McCain head on in an experience debate? The answer, Obama does not want the same Palin question of inexperience shined on him. Obama does not want the focus to be on his lack of experience to lead and for a very good reason. After more than 18 months of campaigning, the American public still thinks that Obama is not ready to lead. According to a recent Rasmussen Poll, a majority of voters say that only McCain and Biden are prepared to be President. 63% of voters state that John McCain is ready to lead right now, while only 44% think Barack Obama is. As a matter of fact, voters thing that Obama’s VP Joeseph Biden is more qualified to lead than Obama.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters say John McCain is prepared right now to be president, and 50% say the same thing about Democratic vice presidential candidate Joseph Biden. Forty-four percent (44%) say the man at the top of Biden’s ticket, Barack Obama, is ready, but 45% say he isn’t.
Just 26% say McCain is not ready, and 34% feel that way about Biden, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Over half of voters (52%) say McCain’s running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, is not prepared to be president, but 33% disagree
With such a wide gap in this all too important question as to who is more ready to lead, many last minute deciding voters may lean toward McCain when the election draws more near.
UPDATE I: A mjaority of American voters think Obama is not ready to lead. Even deep down Obama’s own VP does not think he is ready to be President.
