The polls: Obama vs McCain
Get a load of what the Wall Street Journal says about the presidential race.
While the race between Barack Obama and Republican rival John McCain remains close among U.S. voters, Europeans have given their hearts to the likely Democratic nominee.
Now, that’s not what I’ve been hearing, the race “remains close”? I always thought 5 or 6 points in the polls was anything but close. Look at these:
|Poll||Date||Sample||Obama (D)||McCain (R)||Spread|
|RCP Average||06/16 – 07/02||—||47.6||41.9||Obama +5.7|
|Gallup Tracking||06/30 – 07/02||2641 RV||47||43||Obama +4.0|
|Rasmussen Tracking||06/30 – 07/02||3000 LV||49||44||Obama +5.0|
|CNN||06/26 – 06/29||906 RV||50||45||Obama +5.0|
|Democracy Corps (D)||06/22 – 06/25||2000 LV||49||45||Obama +4.0|
|Time||06/19 – 06/25||805 RV||47||43||Obama +4.0|
|LA Times/Bloomberg||06/19 – 06/23||1115 RV||49||37||Obama +12.0|
|Franklin & Marshall||06/16 – 06/22||1501 RV||42||36||Obama +6.0|
Thanks to Real Clear Politics, I think we can see the true story. It’s a shame the conservative mouthpieces have to spin everything so much. I love the way the WSJ tried to slip the false idea that the race is close into a sentence ostensibly about the European attitudes toward Barack. Conservative readers don’t like that either, remember all the insanity about France a few years ago.
I take this as another indication of imminent defeat for these unscrupulous power brokers, and I think they know it.
