A lot of conservative bloggers are upset by recent poll results, wondering whether or not they will have to deal with Obama’s “Change and Hope” this January. What can say? Well for starters, look at Pollster’s 2008 Presidential Election webpage and see for yourself, it does look pretty bad… That is if it mattered. I can hear far-left bloggers already losing their minds on that. “Well sure it does, Obama is winning, and he will be President, you are just crazy, you can’t accept defeat, you’re biased” is what I imagine the moderates will say, I know the HuffPos and Kosers will call me a racist and question my sexuality, while being completely “understanding” of the gay community (far-left hypocrites). Look closer at the electoral map, what do you see?
We do see is a strengthen of Democratic voters in California, New York, Illinois and Michigan where “The One” has a substantial lead over McCain. These are places of high population in the United States, with New York, Los Angeles and Chicago as the three most populated cities in the country. So what if more Californians vote Democrat, or if more New Yorkers decide to prove they aren’t racist, this election is still close. Sounds crazy, right? Look at the polling results for Ohio, Florida and North Carolina? In the first two, Obama’s lead is within one point, while in the NC, McCain is slowly pulling away. We should be excited, with all this money Obama is spending, he hasn’t made gains where he needs to. With all these speeches and all this rhetoric, he hasn’t clinched this election because the Popular Vote DOESN’T DECIDE WHO THE PRESIDENT IS! Yes that is right, I know more about this then most bloggers do. The electoral college system makes most of these national polls, the polls that Daily Kos and the Huffington Post are excited over, utterly useless.
That is all that really matters, that Republicans win key states and “hold the line”, and it seems to be going well so far. Just look at the electoral map and see for yourself. Even in Nevada, McCain has closed the gap, bring him within a fraction of a point to Obama. We also see the “Maverick” pulling away in Missouri, Indiana and West Virginia, that is 27 solid electoral votes. No matter which way the media spins this, the numbers don’t lie. Let them take California, Illinois, New York, Iowa and Hawaii, you don’t win an election without the swing states, and right now, no matter what they say, the race is still very close, if not starting to swing in McCain’s favour. You keep hearing all this talk about polls showing Obama pulling away in key battleground states, CNN touting it as the strength of Barack’s and Biden’s debate performances (it is good to know they don’t fact check the Democrat’s statements) but I just don’t see it. Michigan was never really in the race, I can’t remember when it last went Republcan, but the fact that McCain remained competitive there for so long means that they doubt “The One’s” credibility. Tuesday’s debate will be important because McCain needs to hammer that home, needs to remind people about Obama’s connections to corrupt Chicago politics and his anti-American streak, something which Sarah Palin brought up yesterday. I say they should remind voters that he refused to wear a flag pin, and refused to cross his heart during the national anthem, really let Americans know that he doesn’t care about this beautiful country. It is utterly disgusting when immigrants show more love for it then citizens who were born in the United States.
Even if it turns into another Bush vs Gore election, I will have to say that George W. took this country through its hardest times since World War II and if economic strife is all we are left with in the end of his eight years in office, I say we thank God for it. After all, it could have been worse, he could have given Iran “cart blanche” on Iraq and terrorists free reign in Israel like Obama plans too…
