In news reports today, the nightmare on Wall Street has basically killed John McCain’s presidential bid. It seems voters are sick of the Republicans and they are ready for a serious change in the White House.
Three weeks of historic economic upheaval has done more than just tilt a handful of once-reliably Republican states in Barack Obama’s direction. Democratic strategists are now optimistic that the ongoing crisis could lead to a landslide Obama victory.
Four large states John McCain once seemed well-positioned to win-Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio and Florida-have in recent weeks shifted toward Obama. If Obama were to win those four states-a scenario that would represent a remarkable turn of events-he would likely surpass 350 electoral votes.
Obama is seen in multiple polls as the more capable economic steward by double-digit margins. McCain had briefly drawn about even on the question following the GOP convention.
“There is the complete utter loss of faith in GOP politics,” argued Jim Jordan, a Democratic strategist. “This is chickens coming home to roost in a way that was almost unimaginable a year ago.”
The McCain’s strategy to have Sarah Palin constantly bring up Bill Ayers is backfiring. Voters want to talk about the issues, how are we going to end the war, lower taxes, and fix the economy. Night after night, we here the same “canned speech” by Sarah Palin at political rallies. It’s not helping the Republican campaign, it’s destroying it.
The final debate is on October 15th, I astrologically predict that Obama will win…in a LANDSLIDE VICTORY! Woohoo!
