http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2008/president/us/general_election_mccain_vs_obama-225.html for the most part polling indicates both candidates are around 45% of the vote. This means the election is headed for another photo finish.
I think Senator Mccain should be flying in circles from Pennsylvania-Michigan-Minnesota-Wisconsin-Ohio-Florida. With stops in New Jersey and New York to gauge interest. In all of those states I would suggest three stops. First stop to a major market area to get the local media buzzing, then a stop at a large University to get facebook, myspace and the younger generation buzzing, and then a stop to poor districts such as the trip he took the poor counties in Alabama. This trip to the poor districts would have cross party appeal. At night he could have fundraisers. Lets take Florida for example, lets say the trip starts on a monday, why not start off in Miami and get the state media buzzing. Then take the long commute to Gainsville on tuesday speak in a formal or informal setting. This would keep the state and local media buzzing. His name would be on the minds of college students . Now Mccain can take a trip to Escambia county or some other Florida county that has been hurt by a natural disaster or slow economy. So of course he would get media attention in the poor county, but now the college students and families across the state would be buzzing with how he cares about the poor.
Barak is going to have tough summer and fall. My passion with this blog is not so much to see Barak lose as it is to make sure people know who Barak is. He speaks of a purple America, but I am afraid that is just rhetoric. His voting record shows him to be the most liberal Senator. He says he is bi-partisan he has not show that in the U.S. Senate. He says he is not for the politics of "slash and burn", but he is insists on framing Mccain as a third term of Bush, when we all know that is not the case.
It is fine to vote for Obama. I just want everyone to know he is a liberal and he is a typical senator. He lies when his back is against the wall.
