McCain Heading to Victory

with 9 comments

An AP Poll that came out yesterday shows that McCain has rapidly made up Obama’s once seemingly insurmountable lead and now stands on the precipice of a victory November 4th.  As reporters were simply announcing that McCain had narrowed the gap to a slim 1% Obama lead, I looked beyond the polls and found that things are looking even better for McCain in 12 days.

The great news for John McCain is an amazing surge of evangelical Christians in this country.  In the AP poll 45% of respondents and 44% of likely voters identified themselves as evangelical Christians.  In the 2004 election, where the Christian right is largely credited for their superior grass roots effort to win the White House for Bush, evangelicals made up 23% of the total vote.  In 2000, that total was at 14% in exit polls.  This near doubling of the number of evangelicals in this country is amazing news for the McCain campaign who is clearly outpolling Obama with this group.

Now that we have this sudden doubling of the Christian right in this country, expect a large Republican victory in the congressional elections too.  This huge growth proves the power of committed monogomous married life to create new Republicans.

  8. Yay for “the power of committed monogomous married life”–like John McCain’s commitment to his first wife, who he dumped after she was severely injured in a car accident–but there was also this rich pretty woman he’d met, so it’s OK.

    Meanwhile, that no-good socialist Barack Obama is still married to his first and only wife.

  9. Not2Brite–His name is Jerry Falwell. I think if you like him you can safely vote for Mccain.

    Doktor–i meant the voters. Besides, I’m tired of people harassing McCain for dumping his first wife. It isn’t his fault that she was in a car crash and get fat.
