October 07, 2008
My friend Maurice turned me on to fivethirtyeight.com, the best site I've seen for poll results/analysis for the 2008 election.
Today's numbers are outstanding for Obama: up 13 in New Hampshire, 12 in Virgina, 11 in Pennsylvania, 7 in Florida, 6 in Ohio, North Carolina, and Colorado, 3 in Missouri. If these numbers hold, Obama wins the electoral college in a landslide.
I sure hope so. I can come up with only a few reasons why at a time when Bush's ratings are incredibly low, the Republican Party has smeared itself, the economy heads ever lower, why Obama isn't miles ahead. One reason is that I believe racism is still alive & kicking in the US. Another is the obedience of the mindless right churchgoers to their masters.
I emailed the Rolling Store article to my brother who is a very head-in-the-sand Republican. He refused to even read it! Didn't surprise me & he just LOVES Palin!
