Hoping for Change? Part 2


More interesting polling results from… Gallup

The positive impact of the GOP convention on polling indicators of Republican strength is further seen in the operation of Gallup’s “likely voter” model in this survey. Republicans, who are now much more enthused about the 2008 election than they were prior to the convention, show heightened interest in voting, and thus outscore Democrats in apparent likelihood to vote in November. As a result, Republican candidates now lead Democratic candidates among likely voters by 5 percentage points, 50% to 45%

As recently as one month ago, the conventional wisdom was that “this will be a Democrat year,” with increasing majorities in the House and Senate, and a climactic coronation of Obamessiah.

This is no longer a slam dunk. In fact, this polling data suggests just the opposite may be true.

Works for me.

  1. Well, I had already picked a slate of all-Republican candidates (save one, locally) for this year, primarily on the basis of either least bad or “the devil I know”. *sigh*

    The Palin pick did encourage me, though, that finally McCain may be able to actually listen to a moderately conservative(which is what Palin truly is: a genuine moderate as opposed to faux moderates that are simply lefty-light posers) point of view.

  5. September 11, 2008…

    Where were you? Do you remember this day? Do you feel safer, or do you realize this is a dangerous world after all? Do you even care? Here are some articles along with videos of that horrid day. There shall be no politics today…

  6. Good points. I have to agree with David though. I was only going to vote for Mexicain because I do not want Obama to ruin all the successes our men and women have achieved overseas. Now I am thrilled! I get this tingling feeling running up (or was that down? lol) my leg! (j/k) Have a great weekend.
