The Associated Press: AP poll shows Obama backers gleeful, McCain's glum

WASHINGTON (AP) That smiling guy walking down the street? Odds are he's a Barack Obama backer. The grouchy looking one? Don't ask, and don't necessarily count on him to vote next week, either.

While 43 percent of Obama's backers said they are excited over the campaign, just 13 percent of McCain's said so, according to the survey of adults, conducted by Knowledge Networks. Six in 10 Obama supporters said the race interests them, compared to four in 10 backing McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona.

On the flip side, 52 percent of McCain supporters said the campaign has left them frustrated, compared to 30 percent of Obama's. A quarter of McCain backers say they feel helpless, double the rate of those preferring Obama.


I don't for a minute see Obama supporters staying home, even if early voting shows a landslide.

This is pathetic. If you think your candidate is going to lose, VOTE. If you think your candidate is going to win, VOTE. Polls are not election results.


I wonder how many of the McCain supporters polled don't feel excited because the campaign has left such a bad taste in their mouths. If Obama had relied as much on Fear and Smear, I'd have a queezy feeling voting for him when I got to the polls. And if the queezy feeling was too great, I wouldn't be able to bring myself to vote for him at all.
