Panic Attack: Obama Behind In Missouri
It's Panic Attack time in DUmmieland. A SurveyUSA poll shows their beloved Obama is behind by 7 points in Missouri. Of course, polls at the juncture of the campaign season are fairly meaningless. Just ask President Mondale or President Dukakis. However, it is FUn to watch the DUmmies panic. What will be ever more FUn will to be to watch the bigtime Panic Attacks by the DUmmies as the polls inevitably tighten up in a few months. The great thing about this is that this will cause the Left act really goofy and make matters even worse for themselves. Watch for the DUmmies to go complete NUts by middle of October. For now they are biting their nails bigtime as you can see in the DUmmie THREAD titled, "McCain up by 7 in Missouri." So let us enjoy the spectacle of the DUmmies tie themselves into knots over a meaningless poll in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the cause of poor polls will have the panic effect of lowering them even more, is in the [barackets]:
McCain up by 7 in Missouri
[Hit the Panic Button! HIT THE PANIC BUTTON!!!]
A new SurveyUSA poll shows John McCain taking a decent lead in one battleground state: Missouri.
The numbers: McCain 50%, Obama 43%, with a ±4.3% margin of error. Three weeks ago, Obama had a statistically insignificant lead of 45%-43%. The race here has a very stark gender gap: Men go for McCain 60%-36%, and women for Obama 50%-41%.
This state has 11 electoral votes, and has voted for the winner in every presidential election over the last 100 years except for 1956.
[So maybe Barack Obama can become the Adlai Stevenson of 2008. There is still the audacity of hope.]
WTF??I thought Obama was leading in Missouri???
[The poll was probably taken AFTER Obama broke his campaign financing pledge.]
how odd, how very odd
[How odd. How can ANY poll anywhere ever show our beloved Obama behind?]
Don't worry......if Dems turnout for Obama in Kansas City and St. Louis in November (and we will), Obama will take Missouri. But it might be close.
[Don't worry. We'll just illegally keep the polls open in St. Louis after the official closing time like we did in 2000.]
it may be time to worry. obama seems to be boxed in on the energy issue. i said a week ago he should have come out for more drilling before mccain did. alot of the polls seem to be suspect right now though.
[The Democrats in Congress were supposed to have a press conference yesterday announcing their energy policy but then had to cancel it because they DON'T have an energy policy beyond wanting to nationalize the refineries.]
You also have to consider the trend of Obama going up in the polls consistently since he started running.
[What goes up must...well, you know the rest.]
I said it a while ago, and I'm being proven correct. And there aren't even enough undecideds to swing the state anymore. He doesn't appear to have the votes to crack 50%
[You now have 10 seconds until meltdown.]
I don't think Obama has offered many positive ideas on how he would lower the price of gas in the short term. He's simply knocked down a lot of other people's proposals. I think he needs to start offering a positive vision on this issue.
[Windfall profits taxes on "Big Oil." Nationalize oil refineries. The Democrat ideas are out there.]
He's very weak in MO. I don't see him winning that state. I wouldn't write it off, but it's not gonna happen.
[SOB! You have just devasted my life!]
Obama can win, but it's NOT going to be the landslide many here predict
[No! Stop with the reality checks!]
