Illinois Senator Obama, winning support from once skeptical women and Democrats, beats McCain 48 percent to 33 percent in a four-way race, a Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll shows. Independent candidates Bob Barr and Ralph Nader get 7 percent combined, with the remainder undecided.

This will even get worse for McSame.

Americans made this mistake in 1976. Voted a marxist in just for the sake of change and ended up with the worst 4 years since the Great Depression.

If you read the entire article you will see the following:
Voters continue to view McCain, 71, as the more experienced candidate and trust him to fight the war on terror

This supports the argument by his advisor that another terror attack favors McCain. If we as Obama supporters keep calling McCain the war candidate then we have to understand and accept that a major attack that screams for revenge will heavily favor making him the president to wage that war and stop getting upset when the McCain camp says that.

4 months and one week is a long time. VPs have not yet been chosen not one debate or town hall has taken place. that being said Republicans are in trouble and deservedly so. Where is the GOP?
I look at it as it will take 4 years of a socialist regime to bring back the real GOP in 2012. A true conservative (not neocon) candidate will emerge.
Although I live in New Jersey where voters never seem to learn a lesson.

Obama holds 12-point lead over McCain, poll finds
Laura Rauch / Getty Images, LM Otero / Associated Press
According to a Times/Bloomberg Poll, 49% of registered voters favor Sen. Barack Obama while 37% support Sen. John McCain.
A Times/Bloomberg Poll says that in a two-man contest, 49% of respondents favor Barack Obama, while 37% support John McCain. With Ralph Nader and Bob Barr added to the mix, Obama holds 15-point edge.
Something else for you to chew on;

Quote:
In this national poll's random sample of voters, 39% identified themselves as Democrats, 22% as Republicans, and 27% as independents. In a similar poll a year ago, 33% identified themselves as Democrats, 28% as Republicans, and 30% as independents.
Another one of those biased polls skewed heavily toward a democrat. I'm sure they do this so the perception will be Obama is a foregone conclusion. Looks like you happily obliged.

So you think the pollsters ask for party affiliation before asking the pollees to participate??


Why do you think only the polls YOU post are fair???
