Polls Show Obama Hurting

with 2 comments

Recent polls showing Obama with a lead over John McCain for President may get Democratic voters all tingly with excitement, but a deeper look at the numbers beneath the numbers shows that Obama is in poor shape.  The first thing that jumped out at me from the latest Rasmussen Poll is that Obama trails McCain by 18 points among Asian non-college educated women over 35 in states with at least a 12% African-American population.  Perhaps even more startling is the 14 point McCain lead among gun owning Catholics in Southern States with two years or less of college education working in white collar jobs.  These are important demographics that any Presidential candidate needs to win if they are going to be triumphant in the Fall election.  To see Obama falling so far behind in those 2 groups is good news for McCain as we ramp up to the fall campaign.

  1. Not only the polls show Obama is hurting, but his starting the smear page shows that these things from the past has started coming back to hurt him here in the general election! He also will not stand toe to toe with Sen. John McCain in a town hall meeting! Well he said he would on the 4th of July.. when no one would be watching!
    Plus the Obama’s are now showing that they can not take a joke, well they better get use to having jokes made about them if they stay in politics!

    Wow!!!! Those are stats worthy of Major League Baseball playoff commentary. What about Mongoli-American hermaphrodites born under a 3/4 moon? Which way will they vote? Because, really, they’re the key to any election. The Greeks knew it, the Carthaginians knew it. Now you know it.
