I mean nobody here seems to be excited about him. I can count on one hand the number of car stickers I see for McCain and lawn signs are non existing for him. I actually see alot more for Ron Paul! I see more- many more stickers for Bush-Cheney than I for for McCain! Nobody comes on TV locally and heaps praise on McCain, nobody stands, cheers or claps for his message. Not even the conservatives are out beating the bushes for him.

Wonderful!

Yet he gets over 40% in the polls. I have to assume most of those are the bigots who won't vote for Obama.

Bigots? Based on what? If you don't have any evidence, I'd suggest you keep that rhetoric to a minimum in order to keep the few moderates still left supporting Obama after his "reversals" to the middle.

The POLL is the evidence. Bush's approval rating is about 25%. McCain wants to 'stay the course' and has a 45% "approval" rating as a candidate. That 20% over & above Bush is the bigot vote. I see a DEM landslide in Nov.

So you're of the opinion that those who won't vote for Obama are bigots. I just want to make sure I understand your logic.

Amateur. Stop trying to put words in my mouth.

From MY mouth: A lot of the support for JM is from bigots who won't vote for a black person, or even a half black person. Got it?

Or maybe they are people who have been through a few Presidential elections and realize that 99% of the promises made by these gas bags NEVER come through. Perhaps they are merely "realists".

Not sure how you can surmise that someone must be a bigot if they disagree with Senator Obama's policies/promises.

Also, some people feel that gov't is best done via a series of checks and balances. Don't let one party be in control of Congress and Presidency.

So people who won't vote for Obama are bigots and support McCain just because he's white?
