Obama by 2% According to AP Poll – AP Forgets to Mention

Posted in Election '08 on October 17, 2008 by Chris

Amazing. The new AP/Yahoo Poll shows that Obama leads McCain by 2 (44% to 42%). Download Poll PDF

The headline for the AP article? “Voters Souring on McCain, Obama Stays Steady”

This headline is based on a finding that the enthusiasm of McCain supporters has deteriorated.

The interesting part of the AP article? Well – they forget to mention the finding from their multiple page poll that actually gives the general election results. You’re hearing me correctly. The AP decided to completely omit the 2% finding altogether and instead focus on the bad news for McCain. Literally no mention WHATSOEVER of the fact that this race is a statistical dead heat.

Stunning? Yeah.

But not surprising.

Rasmussen – Obama +4 (50/46)

Zogby – Obama +5 (49/44)

Hotline – Obama +8 (49/41)

Gallup – Obama +2 (traditional – 49/47) Obama +6 (expanded model with more young and 1st time voters – 51/45)

Battleground – Obama +6 (50/44)

Yeah, I know that Obama is ahead. But this idea that somehow the race is over when all of these are either within the margin of error or close to it is a FALSE MEDIA DRIVEN NARRATIVE INTENDED TO DEMORALIZE YOU!!!

Don’t buy it, folks. This thing is NOT over!

Genius.

McCain Leads by 8% Among 18-24 Age Group – IBD/TIPP

Posted in Election '08 on October 16, 2008 by Chris

The IBD/TIPP poll is known for its absurd accuracy in the 2004 Presidential Race. Take a look at some of the interesting aspects of the poll released today which covers October 11-15 (this on the heels of the new Gallup, Zogby, and Rasmussen polls showing a tightening race).

Barack Obama leads John McCain by only three points (45% to 42%), with 13% still remaining undecided. (If after EVERYTHING that has happened, including the economic crisis and the media’s incessant pounding of John McCain, these people are still undecided – do you really think they’re gonna choose Barack Obama??)

I found it particularly interesting the John McCain is leading Barack Obama among the 18-24 age group by 8 percent, with 8 percent still remaining undecided. Wasn’t that supposed to be Senator Obama’s strong suit?

Obama still holds a significant lead with woman voters and the less educated, but is tied at 37% with Independent voters, with 26% still uncommitted.

Don’t buy the lie that this is over.

We’re just getting started.

Warning Shot Fired: NEVER EVER CHALLENGE OBAMA!

Posted in Election '08 on October 16, 2008 by Chris

Joe the Plumber asked Barack Obama a question.

Barack Obama botched the answer by expressing his belief in “spreading the wealth around” aka giving your money to people that don’t even pay taxes aka redistribution of wealth aka socialism.

Since Barack Obama botched the answer and revealed his true colors, John McCain brought it up at the debate.

Since John McCain brought it up at the debate, Joe the Plumber became famous.

Since Joe the Plumber became famous for a question that he asked Barack Obama which was answered foolishly by the Senator himself, the mainstream media is attacking none other than Joe the Plumber for having a tax lien and lack of an actual plumbing license.

Which has absolutely nothing to do with ANYTHING relevant to ANY of us when it comes to making a decision in this election.

Lesson learned? Don’t ask Barack Obama a question. Because if he answers it incorrectly and anyone finds out about it, you personally will be investigated and destroyed for his mistake.

Journalism died in 2008.

Nice.

Whoopi: Feeling Kinda Republican!

Posted in Election '08 on October 16, 2008 by Chris

ELISABETH HASSELBECK: You know what’s interesting, for all the attacks that she’s under, when you actually talk to the person, she is incredibly nice, down to earth. And it makes- I said to her I really feel bad that there are all these attacks out there on her, “abort Palin” signs being painted on the sidewalks. You know, she’s a- she’s a good woman and regardless of you think, she is.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Yeah, it’s horrible that she has gotten this much and- gotten this much rage in such a short amount of time. And I guess people don’t remember that when Hillary was running because maybe she ran- she had been out there longer and it was easier to take those same kind of ugly pot shots. You know, there’s something about strong women or women running that brings out the worst in people whether it’s on the Democratic side or the, or the Republican side, the point of the fact is, it’s crappy.

JOY BEHAR: But she says things that are inflammatory on the stump also. And somebody yelled out the other day when she was speaking “kill Obama.” And she should be the one to say “do not speak that way about a senator of the United States.” [applause] And she doesn’t. She does not!

GOLDBERG: No she does not, but you know what Joy? That does not justify- I’m sorry- that does not justify crappy behavior from anybody. Yes that’s what she should have done. [applause] But it doesn’t make the- I’m sorry- it doesn’t make the shirt wearing on our side or their side or anybody else’s side, or the ugly things that have been saying- said about not them as candidates, but them as women. This has been going on now for over a year with female candidates and quite honestly I’m sick of the “abort this” and “abort that” and “this one’s a pig” and “that one’s a pig.” Everybody, when you meet them one on one has something redeeming.

[applause]

BEHAR: Yeah, yeah, fine.

GOLDBERG: Everybody.

BEHAR: I’ll accept that. I’ll accept that.

[…]

BEHAR: Obama is ahead in the polls and he’s already starting to say “listen, if I win, remember this is going to be a tough job. People are going to have to make certain sacrifices.” They’ve screwed the country up for the past eight years and now he’s going to have to clean it up.

GOLDBERG: Why-

BEHAR: So be in reality.

HASSELBECK: He was part of the mess.

BEHAR: Be in reality.

[applause]

HASSELBECK: He was part of the mess.

GOLDBERG: You know what? All of Washington, all of Washington-

BEHAR: No, McCain was part of the mess.

GOLDBERG: All of Washington has a hand in this. Every senator, every congressman, every one in the House, every president [applause] vice president, has a hand in what has gone on in the last eight years. People said they fought against stuff. They didn’t fight hard enough. People said they were in it. You know, there was six years for the Republicans and two years for the Democrats and nobody’s been able to get jack booty done. You know?

BEHAR: Alright, but, you know, if you blame everybody, you blame nobody, so you’ve got to start to say-

GOLDBERG: No, we blame everybody. It’s like the, it’s like the-

BEHAR: You can’t throw them all out.

GOLDBERG: No it’s not. It’s like you pointed out the other day. People have to take responsibility. We were talking about the economy. You said at some point we also are responsible. It’s the same way there. It’s not enough to point at one party or the other party and say “you did it,” “you did it.”

BEHAR: Oh, I’m not doing that.

GOLDBERG: But I’m saying, look they’re all culpable for this and we have to check it out.

Ohio’s Democratic Secretary Of State: “Ugh, fine, I guess I’ll enforce the law. I hope you’re happy.”

U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Requires Jennifer Brunner to Verify Registrations

“Since Jan. 1, Ohio has 666,000 newly registered or updated voters — all of whom fall under scrutiny by this latest court ruling. Brunner said an initial review found that at least 200,000 of them might have mismatched information.”

Bummer – Jennifer Brunner was doing everything she could possibly do to make sure that fradulent registrations were valid. Gee, I wonder why! Is there a chance that fake votes this cycle could help Barack Obama in a must-win state? Nah – she couldn’t possibly be trying to manipulate the law so the candidate of her party wins, could she? No chance…
