Presidential Election 2008

I thought it might be nice to have a thread that we can access for hot news stories, polls, etc rather than have them spread throughout this Forum.

Thanks to this article I will sleep better Auntie D:

Cmon Woodnymph, one quick blowjob could put us over the top in Kentucky.

42 days until votes are counted in the race for United States Senator from Kentucky, incumbent Republican Mitch McConnell’s once double-digit lead is eroding, according to this SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for WHAS-TV Louisville, WLEX-TV Lexington, and WCPO-TV Cincinnati. Today, it’s McConnell 49%, Lunsford 46%. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released six weeks ago, Lunsford is up 6 points, McConnell is down 3.

Interviews for this survey occurred at a time of economic turbulence. 6 in 10 voters tell SurveyUSA they are focused on the economy, ahead of all other issues. Among voters focused on the economy, McConnell went from a 6-point lead 6 weeks ago, to a 9-point deficit today, a 15-point swing to the Democrat. Lunsford, a Louisville businessman who ran in the Democratic primaries for Kentucky Governor in 2003 and 2007, also gained ground among women, where 6 weeks ago McConnell led by 11, but today the contest is tied. In Western KY, McConnell had led by 20 points, now leads by 11. In North Central KY, McConnell had led by 12, now leads by 2. In Eastern KY, McConnell had led by 26, now leads by 11. Among voters 50+, McConnell’s lead has been cut by two-thirds. Among wealthier voters, McConnell’s lead has been cut in half.

To put these numbers into context, it is critical to note that the identical survey that polled Kentucky voters on the US Senate race also asked about the Presidential contest. The same respondents rethinking McConnell are sticking with John McCain. McCain led by 18 points 6 weeks ago, leads by 19 points today. At a time when McConnell is struggling with women, McCain is gaining ground with women.

I like your idea Woods, and the below seems appropriate for this thread:

Interesting Candidate Quotation page from Google.  It's defaulted to the U.S. presidential election, but one can choose a Canadian, UK or India edition via the drop down menu at the top of the screen

http://labs.google.com/inquotes/


Edited to add that it is interesting to note that McCain doesn't have a single quote concerning HIV!
