Yawn. It was a “Promote the vote” thing.

Veteran poll watchers have observed that all pollsters make certain that their last poll is always closest to what actually happens in the election. Zogby’s Friday numbers showed that McCain leads Obama 48-47. Will the others shed their Dem leanings to cover themselves as McCain has actually been leading?

Here’s word on the Granite State polling. Its hard to imagine that those moving toward Sununu over liberal Jean Shaheen would vote for Obama over McCain.

First a public official from Ohio. Then a few members of his citizen force that he wants to be equal in size to that of the military.

We’ve been told its about judgement.

Even the most liberal members of congress dare not say it, yet Obama has. And he has done so in a way that’s should be the most frightening. Its one thing to legislate economic policies and have those whom make the decission both debate the issue publically and answer to the voters. Its a far more disturbing thing to achieve such “redistributive policies” in the courts.

Obama added, “one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil rights movement, was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change, and in some ways, we still stuffer from that.”

So with one fail swoop of lost tapes, Obama has covered two loathed
mantras of american politics – “redistribute the wealth” and “legislate through the bench.”

Why these are important now is that we quite frankly, know nothing of the man. The media has done nothing to properly vet a candidate who has such stagering holes in his life story it is the stuff of a movie script. When its revealed, its either denied or called a distraction by his campagin and a complaint press dutifully rolls over and complies.

Says Melanie Phillips of the amrican press:

Over the past seven years, the media has created the Big Lie that America is the biggest rogue state in the world, with Israel its proxy. Now it is ensuring that a man who will act on that very premise to crush America and destroy Israel will be placed in the White House to do so. It is not just that the west’s Big Media can no longer be trusted. It has become the most important weapon in the arsenal of the enemies of the free world.

Taxes, our defense, and judges. It is here where John McCain and Sarah Palin clearly distinguish themselves from democrats. And it is these issues which should be advanced during the last week.

1. Taxes equals the economy. The economy equals taxes. McCain proposes making the Bush tax cuts permanent. Obama wants to “spread the wealth” via your taxes. Democrats caused the Fannie and Freddie collapse. John McCain sounded the alarm well before. Dems used it for a political slush fund and for its patrons such as ACORN.

Our defense. Barney Frank said yesterday he wants to cut the defense budget by 25%. Obama opposed the war, the surge, suggested invading Pakistan and attempted to subvert negotiations with Iraq over our withdraw. McCain stood alone on the surge and was right. We’ve won and defeated Al Queada in Iraq behind republican leadership. Joe Biden propsed partitioning Iraq.

Judges: McCain approves of John Roberts but has been disappointingly lukewarm to Sam Alito. Still, its likely that McCain will appoint those whom will strictly apply the Constitution. There is nothing in Obama’s past that indicates he will appoint nothing other than activist judges who have demonstrative resumes which include rulings which have proved to be legislating from the bench.

From Virginia Virtucon via HillBuzz and Classical Values

statistician for a well-regarded private polling company. They do some work for Republicans in California, but most of the work they do is for Democrats or Democrat-leaning operations (Unions, etc.). Anyway, her shop was retained to do a few Presidential polls for targetted states on behalf of a union so the union could decide where to spend their ad dollars for the last week. They did Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Missouri. After mocking the hell out of the voter id spreads used by Rassmussen, Zogby, etc. (and this is coming from a committed Dem who will be voting for Barry O) she said the results of their polling lead her to believe that McCain will definitely win FL, OH, NC, MO and NV. She says Obama definitely wins New Mexico. She said that Colorado and New Hampshire were absolute dead heats. She said she thinks there is a 55% chance Obama holds on in Pennsylvania and a 75% chance McCain wins Virginia. She absolutely laughed at the public polls showing Obama leading Virginia–and pointed out that all of those polls rely on Dem turnout being +4 and as much as +7, when in 2006, Republicans actually had the advantage by +3. She also pointed out that the numbers for Obama in SWVA look absolutely awful and that McCain is running 10 points better then Allen did in NoVa.

Anyway, her companies conclusion is that the election will come down to Colorado, New Hampshire and the Republican leaning district in Maine, which in her opinion might very well decide the Presidency (apparently the district in Nebraska that Obama thought he might be able to get is now off the table). She said she has very little doubt that the public polling is part of a “concerted voter suppression effort” by the MSM. She said IBD/TIPP was the only outfit doing public polling that was “worth a bucket of warm piss”.

I have to admit that I made the comment some time ago that the election will come down to Colorado. McCain has always been popular in New Hampshire as it is. Couple this with the Clinton win by 5 pts over Obama during the primaries and its easy to understand why the state is in play for McCain.
