Obama Over McCain in NEW Polls.....


First I love it when articles in his OWN state admit there is an Enthusiasm problem.And an Arizona article about how Obama is ahead with young people miles ahead.

And 80% say we are in the Wrong Direction, and as far as the Economy People choose Obama over McCoot 45% to 33% New York Daily News found, and the Bailout is also not favored by most Americans either.

But the Best is the Polls out of Wapo that show 83% think Country is going in Wrong Direction.

and here is a snippet:
"More voters trust Obama to deal with the economy, and he currently has a big edge as the candidate who is more in tune with the economic problems Americans now face. He also has a double-digit advantage on handling the current problems on Wall Street, and as a result, there has been a rise in his overall support. The poll found that, among likely voters, Obama now leads McCain by 52 percent to 43 percent."

2:15PM LA TIMES sent This Out:
Los Angeles Times | September 24, 2008 | 2 p.m. PDT:::

New poll shows Obama with small lead over McCain in presidential race.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama leads his rival, Republican John
McCain, 49% to 45% among likely voters, a new Times/Bloomberg poll shows.
That lead shrinks to 46% to 44% if all registered voters are counted. The poll has
a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Also,
-- voters believed Obama was more likely than McCain to make substantial changes in Washington, 51% to 27%.
-- on the economy, registered voters preferred Obama’s ideas over McCain’s, 46% to 32%.
-- more people in the poll believed that McCain's Vice Presidential running mate Sarah Palin is not qualified to become president than those who believe sheis qualified. Some 46% said she was not qualified; 41% said she was qualified.

3:30PM Update::
Just got home...and so here is the news>..McCain wants to suspend his campaign ????during this Crisis? and NOT have the Debates ? WTF???? what a giant chicken, I bet he saw the polls and is scared shitless.........And then we learn Bush is planning to Address the nation tonight at 9 PM....( damn right in the middle of Rachel....) ((and my perdictions it wil be 14 minutes of Pissy Petulence and Blame this WHOLE mess on THE People, the Homeowners that have LOST everything....) I will Liveblogg the King's Speech tonight....oye

4PM::
McCain cancelled his Dave Letterman Appearence today- KEITH OLBERMANN WAS INTERVIEWED INSTEAD ;-)
( so I guess we will all be watching Dave after all...)

4:20 PM::
Shuster read what Barney Franks Said about McCain 's Manuver " Well, it is either the Longest Hail Mary, or worst Mary ever"...
Lieberman interviewed that " mccain is showing leadership"....I think that McCain looks like a HUGE Chicken and I saw his stupid little speech- and thought WOW...he is FEARMONGERING " oh let Grand- daddy save you...I will suspend my campaign for you"....( what a weasel manuver...) Still Waiting for Obama to come forward...See the thing is Neither of these Canddidates is on any of the Committees that are working on this...and also McCain just DAYS ago Said the "Fundamentals are Stable"...and hey , while he is taking some Time off the Campaign trail- maybe he should answer Some Questions about Rick Davis- read below...

4:40 PM::::
Obama gave presser - Blogged the whole thing in the Comment thread...basically he had spoken to McCain, and last spoke to him at 2 PM and they had decided to issue a Joint Statement...then at 2:30PM McCain came out and gave his little presser-and THAT was a totally different situation...McCain had NOT said anything about postponing the debate or suspending his campaign- Barack said it was mentioned in passing - he did not realize even at 2pm McCain was going to do this.....so as far as he is concerned- the Debate is to go on- it is important that 40 days before the Election THE people need to see the Candidates and hear from them....and then at 5 PM the Debate Commission issued a statement that they indeed intend to still have the Debate....Obama made it clear that he is in contact with DC and all revelant people Paulson and Dems ...So there you have it....McCain is trying to weasel out of the debate...

Bottem Line McCain can't Walk and Chew Gum...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Next we will hear how his dog ate his homework....

I so hope you are right. I wonder how many the hospitals will be responding to people on suicide watch if the Repubs win. Obama has been pulling ahead recently, but today one of my sources tells me they are evenly matched, 269-269 on electoral votes. This is just to close for comfort.

Kellybelle said...

Like the new look!
Went canvassing for Barack last sat. There are people out there. We can do this. Going again this weekend. My house looks like the wreck of the hespers and I need to clean, but I need Barack as president more!

Sewmouse said...

There's only 1 poll that matters. That's the poll that will be taken on November 4, with a 100% sampling of people who vote.

All other poll can really be accurate. Have hope. Have faith - and keep up the truth telling!

(I tagged you, but you can ignore it if you wanna)

Fran said...

Not only is the economy going down in flames, but the hurricane mess in Texas is not getting the press it deserves... billions in damages.
All these woes can only HELP the Dems.

McCain was all about deregulation for a long time, very public about it-- so now the pressure is on him. He is in a lose-lose situation-- if he votes for the bailout votes will be pissed at him, if he flips his stance then he seems wishy washy- for it before he was against it kind of thing. He would try to play the maverick card- that he thinks for himself & only does what is right for the country. But most people look at the long term stance to assess where a candidate stands.

Meanwhile Palin is letting press photographers in a a few minutes to snap photos only- no questions
even mainstream media is complaining that they can't ask questions or do interviews- pictures only?

They figure no questions/no mistakes.
The people & the press are not buying it.

I think there are a lot of people not getting polled (cell phone only), and there are some who are not comfortable stating publicly how they will vote, do they declare themselves *undecided*. I'm hoping closet Obama voters!

Fran said...

Oh! For the record, I HATE the electoral college.

Christopher said...

A 9 point lead in the WaPo/ABC poll.

I hope Obama can hold the line. You know the Old Coot will ramp up the smears.

The debates will be crucial. Not just political theater but truly crucial.

[I accidentally posted this below too. The south-facing sun in blasting in the window and I didn't see the post break. Sorry.]

Angie said...

I'm with Kellybelle. My house looks like Dorothy's house landed on it and blew everything out of the drawers, cupboards and shelves, but it can stay that way until our work is done in November. Here in the Northeast corner of Indiana (the reddest part of a traditionally red state) we have closed an unbeleiveable 21 point gap that existed in 2004. Indiana IS a battleground state and Obama volunteers are out in full force. We have registered an unprecendent amount of new voters! Obama signs and bumper stickers are everywhere. I think this is a little shocking to a lot of people in this area who seldom have seen in their lifetime such enthusiasm for a democratic candidate. Some of the reactions are quite fierce and hurtful, but it matters not. Change is happening like a tidal wave and cannot be turned around.

Like the new look Enigma!

MandT said...

'McCoot' always makes us laugh!

enigma4ever said...

BREAKING NEWS::
MCCAIN WANTS TO SUSPEND HIS CAMPAIGN AND THE DEBATE BECAUSE OF THE "CRISIS"...????

OMG...
unreal..I think he is scared...shitless...more to come I will blog in this thread....

Utah Savage said...

And like most of us, Barack only owns one house and one car. While the mavericky one owns nine houses and thirteen cars.

Christopher said...

One of my readers described it as "redeploying himself out of his own campaign!"

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

What a fucktard!

Good. Obama can show up at the University of Mississippi at Oxford alone and take questions sans the Old Coot.

enigma4ever said...

Utah::
and yeah....we can acttually remember HOW many we have....at all times...but how elitist of me...

Mandt::
McCoot is laughable indeed ;-)

Angie::
ahhhh yes...my house...cough...1.20.09 it won't matter will it ?? Keep at it ladies....I am doing what I can...but I have been stretched thin...my numbers here are up- so I guess Blogging the campaign helps....

torrance::
yeah- my son agrees with you- he said at this rate if they try to take the election away- it will be class warfare....it's all about the green...

Chris::
yup...he will try some sheniganes...now as of this afternoon he is trying to suspend the campaign...

Fran::
yeah...she is now the Princess..oye...things are tense..and yes, I too think the Electoral College is a joke... and as always you are full of wisdom...sigh..

Sewmouse::

Thanks for all you ;-)

Maria::
have faith we can do this..yup...and I think things might be better than we can all know ....

Keep at it friends....WE THE PEOPLE are all doing what needs to be done...

Christopher said...

No one at 50% has lost the presidential election in modern political history.

No one and Obama is at 52%.

The Old Coot's campaign is coming apart at the seams and nothing is going to save him now.

Jeesh, I half expect him to crawl to the SCOTUS and ask them to reschedule the November 4th election because of the economic crisis he helped create in this country.

D.K. Raed said...

I take a nap & wake up to hear McC suspending?!? WOW, hmmm, I thought he was "suspended" a long time ago ... as in, "suspended animation". A dead duck walking ...

enigma4ever said...

DK::
yeah...he is suspending because we are IN CRISIS...what a pissy scared shitless little speech that was...oye...Fearmongering has taken a WHOLE new low....yeah..take a nap and gee who knows what anyone will miss..I walked to the store and Bingo got a call from flyboy about it...wow..

CHRIS::
and yeah, those polls are before the Debate and before the Davis crap hit the fan....Damnit I want those Debates.....especially this one....52% to 43%...
pretty amazing...

53% to 39 % WHO can be trusted with the Economy....

NOW he is saying he is suspending his Campaign ads ????? ( I just saw one here- so that does not sound true).....

enigma4ever said...

4:40PM::: OBAMA PRESSER
Barack Speaking...
very calm, thoughtful....explaining how he called McCain this am to reach out about the structure of the financial plan....Colburn called him...he had asked to issue a joint statement... at 2PM McCain called him back...

(1) accountibility
(2) treat Mainstreet like Investors
(3) we will not bail out wallstreet without helping the People who are losing their homes
(4) this is not a welfare program for Wallstreet execs...

McCain called him back...and Obama said that he has been in contact with DC and people in DC, he talked to Paulson twice today already....there are times when Politics should not interfere process - this is an American Problem....

Question:
about the Debate ? is MCCain playing politics...

Obama:
I wanted to issue a joint statement...McCain wanted to meet with the prexz and congress....but it sounds like the Joint Statement issue was not even resolved....the debates - this is when the people need to hear from the people who will be dealing with this mess...pres must be able to deal with more than one issue at a time...IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER THAT WE PRESENT OURSELVES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE- THEY NEED TO HEAR FROM US....AT THIS TIME...

QUESTION::
about the debate? so he did not tell you ?

Obama:
I thought he was mulling it- I did not know it was firm....It is my sense that everyone must know that this problem is important...but I don't think that we should let partisan politics cloud issues.....that we stay focused...

Question::
are you staying here in Tampa or going to go DC?

Obama:
I think we should be careful not to infuse OUR selves as President candidates into the resolution or the situation....we dont want to interfere....I have been speaking with Reid or Pelosi...these are delicate negogiations...we should and can send a strong messege without interfering...

enigma4ever said...

OBAMA::::

I believe that we should continue to have the debate- the American People need to see us, see how we present ourselves.....There is no reason that we can not have the debate..the American people need to see WHO could potentially be in Charge in the next few monthes....we can communicate to the American People as to how we can get out of this Situation..

I am preparing to debate on Friday...that is my plan.

( He was just told that McCain has suspended his ad s and his activities).

Obama:
I have done what I communicated with McCain...( it is clear that McCain did NOT tell Obama the truth...what a joke...) Obama is sending ALL the questions about McCain suspending his campaign to McCain...

Obama:
I thought we were issuing a Joint Statement...I did not know that he was coming out and suspending his campaign...as it was left at 2PM our staffs were going to work on issuing a Joint Statement...

This is an issue that should transscend normal politics as it is a serious problem....but it is a problem that can be solved...that is what Americans need to hear.....They want to hear that there is struicture being worked on and that people are asking the right questuons and advocating...etc.

Christopher said...

Obama adviser to ABC vis a vis Friday:

"The debate is on!"

So, the Old Coot can hide or he can show up -- it matters not one iota to moi.

I kinda' hope he doesn't show up and then Obama can stand there, all tweeded out and presidential and take questions from the panel.

John McCain? Who dat? ROFLMAO!

enigma4ever said...

So Obama outed McCain...McCain said one thing and did abother 20 Minutes later...what a shithead...

But Obama was cool and collected in the Presser...calm...and throughtful...

enigma4ever said...

MCCain's person:::
on phone with Chris Matthews::
Chris asked now that the Debate Team has issued a statement that the Debates are still Scheduled...Doug Holz Eakin...saying that McCain has not decided..

Spokesperson said that McCain has said that he will needs to be done...

Chris:::
asking WHY would McCain not appear to speak about the Economy ?

Eakins::blah blah....

the Debate Commission is saying that the Debate is still scheduled....

D.K. Raed said...

just my opinion: I don't think the presidential debate committee will proceed with the debate if McC firmly backs out. It's not a debate with only 1 candidate. If McC backs out, I think the networks should give the allotted time to Obama to speak to the nation. He should be hitting hard how the party in power got us into this mess & that's why we need new leadership. again, just my opinion. I'm not napping anymore.

enigma4ever said...

DK:;
actually the Debate committee came out at 5PM and said it is still scheduled...NOT postponed or cancelled- I think that Everyone needs to take a stand...finding out that McCain LIED to Obama and said ONE thing at 2PM and at 2:25PM came out and Pulled this Stunt- this Gimmick So that Americans Could NOT Hear from the Candidates...

NO ONE should cave to the Scared Old Man that just pulled this manuver...

CNN and MSNBC both are pointing out that McCain does not look presidentail doing this BOTH have been asking when was the last time he was in DC ?

Wolf is pointing out that Economic Security is as important as Any Security issue...

If there is an Empty Chair - so be it...then we will hear from Obama for the hour...

( I think it has happened before...I remember an empty chair at some point....)

enigma4ever said...

"You have to be able to Walk and Chew Gum....period."


That is what I would tell McCain..

Fran said...

Wow! I finally got C Span to play on my computer.
Caught McCain's 2 minute statement his handlers told him to say-- a 9-11 reference, & set politics aside....then scurries offstage. A safe & scripted presentation.

Obama makes a 15 minute speech- lays out details of where he stands, then does the UNTHINKABLE-- Opens it up for random questions from the press.
McCain & Palin must have shit their pants!
Not only is this guy talking in details, he is OK with open questions from the press & answering them with ease.
Whoah! That just does not happen in the No Talk Express.

I have to admit my jaw dropped when Obama said, I'll open it up for questions.

I loved the part where he says as President you have to be able to handle multiple issues all at once. No need to suspend the debate.

Right on!
Come talk about the damned financial crisis.
McCain does not know where he stands on it, or how to field questions about his years of loving deregulation & how to justify it now.

Yes debate
Yes on schedule
40 days to election

Obama closes by saying he is in close touch, and can be anywhere at any time, as needed.

Way to go Obama-- he's not grandstanding, hes showing in real time he is up for the job.

Fran said...

Oh! The prez is going to address the nation tonight.
9pm EST.

Grab your shovels, my friends, the shit will be gettin' thick.

Tell me you are live blogging it E.

enigma4ever said...

Dear Fran...
I am indeed liveblogging it....would not miss it for the world...

enigma4ever said...

6:24 PM NOW McCain's People is asking that the Debate be moved to October....on CNN.

enigma4ever said...

Dana Bash on CNN :
6:25PM..

THIS IS WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON::
MCCAINS' CAMP WANTS TO DELAY THE DEBATE UNTIL NEXT THURSDAY AND CANCEL THE VP DEBATE...AND THEN HAVE THE VP DEBATE AT ANOTHER TIME...WOW...WHAT A SCUMBAG...

Fran said...

McCain camp: Let's have the VP debate sometime after November 4......

He is stalling.

The debate is only 2 days away, he should have been prepped for it by now.
Hell-- McCain has his own private jet to get around in & 13 personal vehicles- what's the problem?

It's obvious the problem is McCain needs to get his story straight on the financial mess HE & HIS PARTY had a hand in.
He has to come up with some tap dance & razzle dazzle to make himself look like he had a clue or knows how to proceed.

Yep-- He's in trouble.

If he does not want to come to the debate, then let Obama have a Q & A session. Tough beans McCain needs more time. NO.

They don't take questions because they don't have answers.

See ya for the live blog Bush yammerfest~ tell us oh great leader your plan to fix this mess...

Apparently the buzzword since McCain's announcement is bi partisan.

Yea right.... we the repugs screwed something else up big time, but lets now work together to fix it.

Fran said...

Ok this will make you laugh-- Sen. Pete Domenici R-New Mexico just said

"Paulson has a PhD in economics.
His Dissertation topic: the Great Depression" !!!

enigma4ever said...

Oh fran...I am laughing...please tell me he dedicated it to HOOVER ??????

HelenWheels said...

Man this was yet another REALLY stupid gamble on McLame's part. He probably thought Obama would cave and I'm so relieved Obama didn't.

Obviously, Obama wants the debate and McLame wants to hide under the table.

I don't see how this can be spun in McLame's favor but most of the MSM will try.

Holy crap this campaign is like a fucking rollercoaster!
