Election ’08: The final straight…

7 Oct

Ok, so it may not quite be the final straight. But it is undeniable that Barack Obama’s growing lead is starting to panic the GOP. Republicans are worried that there may not be the time to turn it around.

Rightwing blogs are denying that it’s over, claiming that Kerry led Bush going into the ’04 election – only to lose. But as leading Democrat blogger Oliver Willis points out, this is simply not the case (wot, you mean rightwingers lie?). Bush was leading Kerry at this point in ’04.

Moreover, the Obama lead is beginning to bring more and more States into contention. This is a result of Obama’s adoption of Howard Dean’s ambitious 50-State strategy (something it should be noted, that was ridiculed by the Clintons), and the increasing economic concerns of the electorate. In polls Obama crucifies John McCain on the economy.

    Nah, I’m still saying McCain to win. I ain’t getting caught out once more by getting my hopes up again. There’s still plenty of October left for a Surprise…

    I don’t blame you. But with McCain thrashing around like a wounded Caribou, the electorate are losing faith in the him – in their droves. Maybe now is the time to believe…Of course, worryingly a scandal, or * he winces* a bullet, would change everything.
