BIG drop from 18% advantage for Obama earlier this year. Only 5% between the two candidates.
As a New Yorker, let me remind people that while NYC may be Democratic (although we elected 2 Republican mayors- Guliani and Bloomberg, a pseudo-Republican and a Republican governor, Pataki), the STATE of NY is very conservative. Don't assume the liberals on the West Side will get Obama the Empire State.
MYDD shouldn't put NYS in the Obama column yet. There's still work to do in ALL the states, not just the so-called battleground states.
George W has never been uncomfortable with his lies.
He and his cabal have embraced them.
But McCain and the Republicans are ready to move away from Bush, never talking about him, instead invoking Reagan and the glory of so-called Republican "values".
What you need to be afraid of is McCain using the old Clinton trick of co-opting your opponent's issues and making them your own. Right now, Palin has become the "star", the Obama for the Republican Party. With that and the continuing separation of Bush and the Republican Party, this is going to be very difficult for Obama.
The Republican base is ready to roar forward. Rarely has the country ever voted in its best interest.
I know there are states looking to overturn Roe v Wade. This has been the case since Roe v Wade has been passed.
There's always a threat to Roe v Wade. If you really want to ensure the rights, work on a Constitutional Amendment instead. And control who McCain puts in the Supreme Court. Tell the Congress to do their damn job.
Nobody puts Pelosi's feet to the fire... it's time people did.
