Democrats Watch “Hope & Change” Sinking Fast
With only seven and a half weeks to go to election day the Democrats and the hard Left are watching “the one we have been waiting for” — Barack Obama sink fast in the polls. Obama is very close to loosing this election — one that was predicted to be a Democratic rout.
Today’s Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows John McCain reaching the 50% level of support for the first time since Barack Obama wrapped up the Democratic Presidential Nomination. McCain retains a three-point advantage for the third straight day, 50% to 47%.
So what’s going wrong for Obama? — Everything
- Voters are tired of hearing his long winded rhetorical rants with no specifics.
- Obama promises too much and his lack of real executive experience is his greatest weakness.
- We are winning in Iraq and Obama can’t stand it!
- Baracks Energy Policy sucks.
- Obama can’t answer a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question without a 50 word answer.
- Obama’s entitlement give aways will cripple the nation.
- Obama’s Tax Plan will also cripple the nation.
- SARAH PALIN!
Sarah Palin has put Obama’s experience factor front and center. The MSM are desperately trying to out do the left rant blogs by belittling, smearing and scandalizing her. But to no avail.
Lately they keep trying to say she supported “The Bridge To Nowhere” — but The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) prove just the opposite.
Obama and his campaign surrogates have spent the last two weeks attacking the Republican number 2 choice, instead of John McCain. This has helped Palin and McCain.
Palin has certainly lit a fire under the Republican base and swung many of the undecided and independents her way. I too had reservations about voting for John McCain. Sarah Palin and her no nonsense, kick their butt style of governing has me convinced.
A lot can still happen between now and November 4th — But first there are the debates:
- September 26: First Presidential Debate in Oxford, Mississippi at the University of Mississippi on Foreign Policy & National Security. The debate will be formatted into nine nine-minute segments, with the moderator introducing the topics.
- October 2: Vice Presidential Debate in St. Louis, Missouri at Washington University in St. Louis. The format and issues have not been decided.
- October 7: Second Presidential Debate in Nashville, Tennessee at Belmont University. It will have a town meeting format and will include any issues raised by members of the audience.
- October 15: Third Presidential Debate in Hempstead, New York at Hofstra University on Domestic and Economic Policy. This debate will also be formatted into nine nine-minute segments, with the moderator introducing the topics.
I think McCain will do even better than expected against the long-winded one and Sarah Palin will wipe the floor with nasty old Joe Biden.
The Democrats could very well loose the White House again — boy will they be pissed.
