Some guy on NBC just suggested that the Presidential race needs to be longer.

Thank goodness it's time for America's Next Top Model. I need something fluffly to wash the taste of smirking politics out of my brain.

I know plenty of religious people who are deeply thoughtful people. I know plenty who are not. But the same can be said for joe six-packs as well.

Religion is not our problem. A lack of education and a growing move towards isolationism and bravado in our country is the problem.
You are totally correct.

What I meant to say by sad (I really could elaborate better ): Religion should not be used as a means of reasoning when picking a candidate, except when their freedom of practicing their religion becomes threatened.

CNN phone poll:

Obama did the best job, 58%; McCain did the best - 31%

Obama's favourables rose, unfavourables went down. The opposite for McCain, of course.


Another resounding Obama win.

Also, Obama won according to CNN pundits. Even the republicans among them scored Obama higher.

Only if you want to be conveniently ignored by McCain and/or Palin.

John McCain didn't just fail to get the game-changer he needed -- he was trounced in this third and final debate, if the instant post-debate polling provides any indication.

The results over at CBS show Obama to have scored the biggest victory to date: "Fifty-three percent of the uncommitted voters surveyed identified Democratic nominee Barack Obama as the winner of tonight's debate. Twenty-two percent said Republican rival John McCain won. Twenty-four percent saw the debate as a draw."

It is, the site writes, "a clean sweep" for the Illinois Democrat.

Over at CNN, a separate poll of several hundred debate watchers again favored the Democrat by large margins: 58 percent for Obama to McCain's 31 percent. Perhaps more importantly, McCain's favorable rating dropped 51 to 49 while his unfavorable rating increased from 45 percent to 49 percent. Obama ended up with 66 percent favorable rating.

Digging into the details the news is even worse for the Arizona Republican.

Asked who "expressed his views more clearly" 66 percent said Obama, 25 percent said McCain.
"Who spent their time attacking his opponent:" 80 percent said McCain, seven percent said Obama. "Who seemed to be the stronger leader:" 56 percent for Obama, 39 percent for McCain. And who was "more likeable:" 70 percent for Obama to McCain's 22 percent.

CNN also conducted a smaller focus group of 25 undecided likely voters in Ohio, and Obama won that too, 15-10.

Meanwhile, virtually the entire Frank Luntz focus group on Fox News, which was staged tonight in Miami, said that Barack Obama won the debate. Luntz termed it a "clear majority," but not one person raised their hand when asked if they thought McCain won.

Said Luntz: "None had made a decision to support Sen. Obama before the debate, but more than half supported him after the debate. It was a good night for Barack Obama."
