National Polls Tightening; State Polls to Follow

Conservatives and Republicans should not give up in this fight to the end. The polls are tightening and the state polls have historically lagged the national polling in this election cycle. Last week Obama was leading by 7 or eight points. Real Clear Politics showed as a high water mark of an 8.4% average of the polls for Obama. Today there is a 5.3% difference for Obama. There is also a poll out of Ohio that shows McCain +1. As long as McCain can stay on message and keep Obama in defend mode McCain can and will pull this out. Remember Obama was leading Clinton by 10 points over the last weekend in New Hampshire and still managed to lose. As long as McCain can keep the polls moving towards him in the last couple of weeks there is a good chance that the remaining undecided move decidedly in McCain's direction.

Late undecided's of a history of backing the established candidate on foreign policy related issues. This was true in 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 2000, and 2004. Perhaps this why Colin Powell decided to endorse Obama this late in an election. Powell promised not to endorse anyone earlier in this election cycle but broke that promise today. It could be that Obama knows the polls are closing and undecided's historically move against the inexperienced candidate. For all any knows Obama paid Powell off with some of the ill gotten campaign contributions. We probably will never know.

The point is that the pathetic pawns (MSM) are attempting to demoralize the Republicans and suppress voter turnout on the conservative side. The have been busy pushing this race as being over for the past two weeks. The pathetic pawns pushed the Obama talking point that McCain needed a knockout during the last debate. They are pushing hard for the idea that McCain needs a game changer. Well McCain was provided the game changer in "Average Joe". The pathetic pawns attacked "Average Joe" as not being properly vetted. Imagine for a second would anyone vet an Average Joe private citizen simply for asking a basic question. Obama answered that question with his socialist agenda. Yes folks a basic tenet of Socialism is to "spread the Wealth". This was a major slip. The Pathetic Pawns went nuts trying to steer the conversation towards the credentials of a private citizen who was guilty of nothing more than exposing their chosen candidate. Believe me the polls are closing.

Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and Conservatives must keep the faith. Everyone must get out and vote and not sink to the feeling that all is lost. If everyone votes and McCain loses so be it. America will suffer through an Obama Presidency for the next few decades. However, if voters listen to the pundits and not their conscience America will have no one to blame but themselves. Remember the pundits are not really mentioning a closing of the national polls. Right now they are hanging their hat on Sate polls. The problem with doing that is forgetting that the State polls have lagged behind the national polls this election cycle. McCain can win this if every one currently on the McCain wagon keeps the faith.

Hopefully so. Also, there is an EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITY looming ahead for McCain in the next few days - it is very probable that something will happen in N. Korea, Kim probably is dead and right now they are engaged in power struggle behind the scene. Besides the seriousness of this problem for the world, this will be a formidable opportunity for McCain to wrestle the control of the political agenda. I simply pray for his staff to be on stand-by with a blast of of "3.am"-type of ads.
Once in a life time...

According to Gallup Daily, Barack Obama again leads John McCain nationally by 10 percentage points among all registered voters, 52% to 42%. According to Right-wing RCP, Obama leads McCain in Electoral Votes 364-174.

I think the "tightening" you Right-wingers are experiencing is in your head as an Obama presidency starts to sink in...

You cherry picked one poll out of many. All of the other polls have shown a tightening of the race. RCP average is currently at 5% for Obama earlier last week it was Obama +8.4% this is a movement of three points. Another three points over the next week and Obama will again be in a dead heat. Still want to cling to one poll? I think it is more prudent to look at the polls as a whole. This is a close race and if voters don't listen to the Obama talking points we will see a long election night probably hinging on 5 or six states.

I'm just surprised that Obama has had such a hard time in locking in the deal for the past months. He is the 'citizen of the world', promises to give "tax credits" to those who may not even pay taxes(aka handouts) -- and overall, promises utopia. You would think he would have had 95% support in the polls by now.

Simple rule: never trust government. And as Reagan would say, government is not the solution - it's the problem.

Lizard - Obama's up by 8 points again. One week passed. your candidate is drowning in Obama voters. I can't wait until NOV 4 when you trolls will cry your crocodile tears. Get ready for a ling era of Democratic rule. By the time we're done there won't be a Conservative on the Court or a Republican party worth the name.
