i can't believe the Missouri poll numbers. amazing.

and then there's this:




and then there's this little gem:



a 73% disapproval rating is historic. it's shocking, even.

Interesting that a liberal magazine like TIME would get polling numbers like this for white men:

Obama remains weak among white men. That group supports McCain 57%-36% overall, and non-college-educated white men back the Republican ticket by an even greater margin, 63%-27%.

yeah?

How about thinking of workers again like part of the Capital Investment on the Ledger Sheet in a company .... instead of treating them like part of a Work Sheet Liabitities sub-columns......the way, at least, more companies did before the rise of Reagonics <not counting even earlier history here, like Hoover's time)?
Or, gee, even investing in <cue scary music> poor people -- where time after time after time it HAS been shown in the USA, that poverty of any group- Irish, Italians are the most "notable" here the NYC area:<let alone black people who've never gotten a fully even playing field yet > DOES make for more crime, and when they've risen up on the social-economic level their crime level goes down .
Their were programs from Johnson's Great Society that were working or begining to......that were torn down by many Republicans, and Conservative Democrats, before more gains were made.

Poverty does not = stupidity, laziness or unworthiness
That's the ole Calvanists line......


Oh, and while I am not an accountant, I was a freelancer, and I did take Accounting 101 & 102 from a school associated with a well-respected State University in the days before the Repubs started defunding State Universities.

For the second day in a row, John McCain is only down by 4 points to Barack Obama in the national Gallup poll. Relative to the polls this past weekend and over the past two weeks, this is good news for McCain. He needs to get back within 3 points to have a chance at an electoral victory.

Gallup Daily: Obama 48%, McCain 44%




At the state level, things are not going well, and are starting to reflect the national polls seen last weekend. State polls are always a few days late at picking up these trends. Hopefully for McCain, these state polls will start to reverse back to where they were before the start of the financial crises. If the election were held today, this is what realclearpolitics predicts would happen in the electoral college:

McCain now has an ad about Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - New ad targeting Obama features connection to Rev. Wright - Blogs from CNN.com

Is this a sign that he has no more cards up his sleeve? Wright is essentially the last grenade in the back pocket. The problem is, it's old-ass news. Does the grenade really have any substantial powder left in it? What's left when this last cheap shot fails?

perhaps the real reason behind deeps antipathy towards Obama is the fact that he actually has a huge crush on the senator from illinois.

sometimes I think I might like it better without the TelePrompTers

sometimes the TelePrompTers give the impression of Moses with the stone (glass) tablets

sometimes I hear James Baldwin saying "Go tell it on the mountain".

It took them about a half hour to get the damn teleprompter to work on Saturday...and that was after we had been standing out in the heat and then the rain and thunder and lightning. We were an irritable crowd until those two smiling faces of Obama and Biden got up on stage, then everyone forgot about their aching muscles, and the fact that their playlist had looped 5 times, and all 26,000 of us united around them.

To borrow a line from McCain, "My friends," Virginia is changing. I've been handing out absentee ballots to students the last few weeks, and the excitement is unusually high at my school, which is notoriously apathetic. I'll say it here and now: As Virginia goes, so goes the nation.

Your purple is getting more blue everyday

if Missouri goes blue the E C votes could go to 374 - 174

that's more than a high tide ( tsunami )


oh yeah, and as Virginia (or about 6 other states) goes, so goes the nation.
