Is the Presidential Race Tightening (McCain Behind by 3) … Many Respectable Polls Seem to think So


Barack Obama may not want to measure the Oval Office drapes just yet or start prematurely or presumptively picking his Presidential Cabinet. Some very respectable polls are showing that the race is tightening and the Obama lead is shrinking. In an effort to pander to middle of the road Republican leaning voters, Obama states that his Cabinet would be bi-partisan. Does anyone really think that Obama plane to share is “Presidential wealth” with Republicans? A socialist does have their limits.

Obama … here is some change you can believe in, the polls they are a changin’. A recent Rasmussen daily tracking poll has the Presidential race down to an Obama 3 point lead.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Barack Obama attracting 50% of the vote nationwide while John McCain earns 47%. This is the first time McCain has been within three points of Obama in more than a month and the first time his support has topped 46% since September 24.

The IBD/TIPP Tracking Poll also has the race with an Obama 3 point lead with 6 days to go before the election. According to the Traditional Gallup Daily Tracking poll, Obama has a 3 point lead as well. Is it possible that McCain may make this a race after all and it will be a long election night before a candidate is declared a winner?

The question remains, are any of the polls accurate? Could the country be headed to a 2008 version of the famous 1948 upset election, … DEWEY WINS!!!

One wonders how this is still even a race when all indicators have been positive for Obama including the general mood of the country, GWB’s low approval rating, a bad economy falsely tied to Republicans and a media that has promoted and covered for Obama since the outset. However, Obama had the same problem during the Democratic primaries with Clinton. He could not close the deal because many voters just do not trust him or his policies. There are questions abound especially with his recent share the wealth comments. Obama only wishes to mock McCain’s questions of socialism as many Americans fear is the potential next President of the United States a raging Socialist. It is a legitimate question and deserves and answer.

Get ready America … this is just a glimpse of what you should expect in an Obama Presidency.

      I can’t believe 64% of Jewish voters support Obama, per the IBD poll. Obama is not their friend! I really think that if Obama is elected, an attack on Israel by Iran will not be far behind, and I can guarantee you that Obama will do nothing, except maybe tell Israel not to overreact.

      Just want to let everyone know that I’ve seen the light and I’m now going to vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin. They make a really great team. I also want to apologize to everyone on the board for the clearly horrible things I’ve said.

      It is possible to post under someone else’s name, now isn’t it?

      Early FL voting shows McCain leads.

    4. caesu on October 29th, 2008 11:53 pm

      it looks like Barack Obama is going to win in a landslide electoral vote, nationwide polls seem to be tightening a bit – but that’s just McCain increasing his margins in states he would have won anyway. (bookmakers)

      it’s quite likely Obama wil win in Arizona.
      maybe even Georgia, Lousiana, Montana, North & South Dakota.
      McCain has no chance in the world.
      he has to defend now typical red states like Virginia, North Carolina.
      and even if he wins those two he still loses.

      better focus on the senate.
      quite likely Democrats will win 60 seats there.

      Another name for a False Prophet is ‘LIAR”. Here’s a guy
      who is resorting to an Informercial to repeat his exaggerations
      to the camera while reading a script. WAIT, vote right now and
      he’ll give you a set of steak knives with that phony tax reduction,
      all you have to do is pay shipping and handling. Fantastic!

      Hollywood productions are just so convincing, don’t you think?

    6. nurturer on October 30th, 2008 6:40 am

      I think McCain is going to win it.

    7. Brenda in Virginia on October 30th, 2008 7:57 am

      If my memory serves me correctly, Reagan was showing -6 in the polls 1 wk before the election….we know what happened with that.

    8. on October 30th, 2008 8:41 am

      Could it be that America is waking up to Obama’s plans.

      In the Saddleback debate Barack Obama called out America, saying:

      “Americans’ greatest moral failure in my lifetime,” he said, “has been that we still don’t abide by that basic precept in Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.”

      Yet think of how Obama’s relatives fared from Obama’s $4million income this year.

      he indicts America for something he, himself is the guilty one. That’s what Marxism is all about. The leaders skim off the top and the masses are left to fend for each other.

      i continue to believe that the majority of conservatives refuse to participate in these polls. every election it’s the same thing, polls are incorrect. the left always screams that the election has been stolen from them because they tend to believe in & participate in time wasting polls.

    10. Michelle on October 30th, 2008 10:20 am

      #4 caesu….again you are not listening. Those polls do not mean spit when it comes to the actually voting. You don’t really think that Obama is going to take Arizona now do you?

    11. rightknight on October 30th, 2008 10:23 am

      Barry is sure to be ahead in most of the Middle East
      Polls, save for Israel. The State of Israel has a tendency
      to take action rather than play guessing games IMHO.

      The movie industry uses the Awards Shows to promote
      their candidate ‘films’ to the public. The Media use questionable
      polls to do promote their agendas.

      How many intelligent folks do you know who respond
      to telephone calls from pollers?
      “Hello, we want to know exactly how you will be
      casting your private vote this year”.

    12. txchic on October 30th, 2008 10:46 am

      most of the young people who are ardent obama supporters won’t bother actually voting. mark my words.

    13. Steve Holloway on October 30th, 2008 11:38 am

      Please let your local RNC know about the link

      My RNC didn’t know anything about the lawsuit. Also contact your local news media and let them know….maybe we can stop this.

      Obama has a good chance winning Arizona.
      McCain is only 2 points ahead there.

      Obama is increasing his ad campaign and might have a rally there in coming days.

    15. Sharon Chicago on October 30th, 2008 11:55 am

      Where does O’Bama come off saying this:

      In the Saddleback debate Barack Obama called out America, saying:

      “Americans’ greatest moral failure in my lifetime,” he said, “has been that we still don’t abide by that basic precept in Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.”

      OH REALLY O’BAMA…I guess those babies swept from their mothers wombs by abortion, can quote that scripture back to you!

    16. scott on October 30th, 2008 11:55 am

      I’ll bet you anything in the entire world that Obama will NOT win Arizona. It’s amazing the spin that is being put on THE COMEBACK!

      Caesu – newsweek is heavy left….keep believing the polls loser!

    17. Sharon Chicago on October 30th, 2008 11:58 am

      Hey #6 Nurturer…. I believe McCann is going to win also! :o )….

      The Polls are all off…. I am praying no more fraud turns up for any votes for O’Bama. Boy,
      he really trained them didn’t he! Crocks everywhere!

    18. Sharon Chicago on October 30th, 2008 12:00 pm

      Number 12 Texchic…I agree…they will be sleeping behind the wheel sort of speaking
      and will not make the effort to vote.

      Believe me they think their “chosen one” (NOT!)
      has this election in the bag, so why not just
      sleep in! tee hee…

    19. Rusty Bridges on October 30th, 2008 1:50 pm

      The early voters in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are mostly voting Obama. These three counties decide the state. Don’t shoot the messenger.

    20. rightknight on October 30th, 2008 1:59 pm

      OK, so let’s assume Barry is a Caucasian. Why would America
      be voting for a white guy that surrounds himself with anti-American
      radicals and a selection of domestic terrorists? Why would we choose
      a ‘Redistribution of Your Money’ 44 year old dog that will not
      learn new tricks to decide for us how our earnings get confiscated
      and spread around? If the miniscule amount of resume released
      is to be believed, a white Barry will continue funding ACORN,
      handing out checks to voters he prefers, using our bucks to
      feed questionable education projects, recreating the dependent
      welfare state, etc., while defunding our military in accordance
      with his woeful lack of judgement. This guy is simply a
      would-be broker for money he would control from outlandish
      taxation. He would only be able to create Government jobs
      as a result, (tax-strangled small businesses downsize)
      in which case the new batch of Government ‘workers’
      would require additional taxes to pay them. Ouch!

      keep drinking your Straight-talk-to-Nowhere-KoolAid loser!

      many polls suggest Arizona might get close.
      i am not saying that Obama is going to win there.

      but for sure Obama is going to win with such a eletoral landslide that Republicans will be unable to steal the election.

    22. ANewGirl on October 30th, 2008 5:06 pm

      #21- Ceasu….It appears as if your boy will take it.

      So! See you back here in about oh 9-12 months whining about everything we predicted on here, OK?


      something tells me (even with YOUR BOY in office) you and YoYo will STILL find a way to blame the REP for everything.

      WHATEVER! Hold on to your knees, America—we will soon be kissing our arses good-bye!

    23. Brenda in Virginia on October 31st, 2008 6:41 am

      Let us not forget that the honorable John Kerry went to bed before the election was called he was so confident he would win…and in the morning he was famously quoted as saying, “I can’t believe I lost to the f%$@ing idiot!” (how presidential)

    24. Brenda in Virginia on October 31st, 2008 6:42 am

      What will the great Obamanation say after losing in a few days? We can only hope for a statement with the amount of integrity Mr. Kerry put into his!

      Not only that, remember Kerry refused to concede? Or, should I say conceded and then took it back? That is hillarious!

    25. scott on October 31st, 2008 7:34 am

      caesu – you are a communist pig! End of story!

    26. caesu on October 31st, 2008 11:32 am

      #25 scott

      you always keep impressing me with your well thought through comprehensive analysis.

      and by the way.
      Obama’s lead in the national polls is increasing again since yesterday.
      statewide polls even more.
      and Democrats are likely to win 57 senate seats.
      possibly even more.

      moderate Republican willing to work with Obama can prevent filibustering.
      it’s looking very good.

    27. ANewGirl on October 31st, 2008 4:18 pm

      Hi, Brenda in Virginia:

      Well, you are absolutely right with your posts…I am afraid EVERYTHING I have been reading or hearing via the MSM this week has been so….persuasive?

      I truly would love to see Obama lose, not because of anything horrible—but because a lot of what has been discovered about the man still makes one question his background…also just the fact that he does not have the experience to lead this nation.

      MSM says…OBAMA WILL TAKE IT IN A LANDSLIDE….my prediction is only that it is going to be a lot closer than many of these “experts” predict…but,,,,sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach that the Golden Boy might take it.
