Evening Wrap Up....the bounce is real, confirmed by the LA Times/Bloomberg Poll

barack in las vegas, nevada, today


The LA Times/Bloomberg Poll has shut many UP. How is that? Well, many of the cable desk clerks were chirping away that the Newsweek Poll was a outlier. I remember distinctly that Howard Fineman of Newsweek made a statement that "the Newsweek Poll has a distinct way of showing movement..." Well, Mr. Fineman was not wrong. The LA Times/Bloomberg Poll has just confirmed the movement.

In a two-man race between the major party candidates, registered voters chose Obama over McCain by 49% to 37% in the national poll conducted last weekend.

But not so fast. The numbers for Obama improves to +15 if you mix in Bob Barr and Ralph Nader. I see Barr a problem for the Republicans this cycle, as Ross Perot was for the Republicans in 1992.
On a four-man ballot including independent candidate Ralph Nader and Libertarian Bob Barr, voters chose Obama over McCain by an even larger margin, 48% to 33%.

And what has catapulted Obama over McCain? The economy, period. I can not type this enough, and I hope my brother in far away St. Paul, Minnesota reads this, as he is skeptical Obama can win in November. When we are approaching five dollar gas, jobs are being lost with no new ones created, food prices soaring and yes, look at the flooding, none of the goods are moving in this country, kids are not able to afford college, the environment needs to be addressed, the Iraq War is sucking this country dry, infrastructure in this country can not be trusted, will you vote Republican in November to continue this?

This election cycle is about our pocketbooks and in the end who gives a ratsass what color a person is? In the end, you want who did this to you OUT OF OFFICE and that is the Republicans.

This is why Clinton will not be the VP Pick:
But the great majority of Clinton voters have transferred their allegiance to Obama, the poll found. Only 11% of Clinton voters have defected to McCain.

That drama is fini.

The Democrats don't have an issue with Obama, or many across the board don't either, but McCain is another story:
McCain is not capturing the full extent of the conservative base the way President Bush did in 2000 and 2004," said Susan Pinkus, director of the Times Poll. "Among conservatives, evangelicals and voters who identify themselves as part of the religious right, he is polling less than 60%.

Meanwhile, Obama is doing well among a broad range of voters," she said. "He's running ahead among women, black voters and other minorities. He's running roughly even among white voters and independents.

This is good news, but we got 4 months to go, we still need to work like we are 20 points down, because we all know that that negative advertising is coming and expect that heavy in October. In the meantime, yes, be happy.

More Polls:

New Mexico: Obama 49, McCain 46
Indiana: Obama 48, McCain 47....Indiana is a BATTLEGROUND STATE.....

Huge Fundraiser Tonight in Los Angeles for Obama; And Obama and Clinton with Unity on Friday in New Hampshire

Sen. Barack Obama's gala fund-raiser today will attract the mandatory lineup of big-screen talent and boldface names - actors Samuel L. Jackson and Dennis Quaid, model Cindy Crawford and boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard - and reconfirm that the entertainment industry remains one of the most reliable and abundant sources of Democratic campaign cash.

The party's 2008 presidential contenders pocketed $8 of every $10 coming from movie, TV and music businesses, and Sen. Hillary Clinton's withdrawal from the race all but guarantees a Hollywood windfall for Obama as the party begins to unite around its presumed nominee.

The glitzy gathering will be an early test of the Illinois Democrat's ability to enlist Clinton's financial backers, many of whom are still nursing some pain from the grueling primary contest.

Obama is to meet with Clinton and her top fund-raisers Thursday in Washington and the two are to campaign together for the first time on Friday in New Hampshire.

The two will stage their show of unity in the small town of Unity.

The location, announced yesterday, was chosen not only for the symbolism of its name, but because each candidate received exactly 107 votes there in the Jan. 8 Democratic primary. continue


Well everyone is talking about McCain's senior advisor, Charlie Black and his total admittance of stating that another terror attack will help McCain.

Why is this not surprising to me? I mean, what else do the Republicans have to offer? They have totally messed this country up, with the exception of the ultra rich in this country so bad that their own constituents don't want them back. Yeah, Republicans are hurting in this country, too.

Black is just being, well, honest. Something that most politicians have an issue with. Remember when the Bush Administration released that Osama bin Laden tape the weekend before the election in November, 2004? It was that tape that pushed many undecideds into Bush's column.

This is 2008. Different game now. The Bush Administration has been exposed for liars and frauds, from everything of handling Katrina, the Iraq War, the Plame debacle, the US Attorney mess, and the list is endless.

Charlie Black should not have stated what he did, which is true in Republican circles, but he said it and we will just see what happens.

President George W. Bush and his sterotyping.

This is what Bush said to the President of the Phillipines:
PRESIDENT BUSH: Madam President, it is a pleasure to welcome you back to the Oval Office. We have just had a very constructive dialogue. First, I want to tell you how proud I am to be the President of a nation that -- in which there's a lot of Philippine-Americans. They love America and they love their heritage. And I reminded the President that I am reminded of the great talent of the -- of our Philippine-Americans when I eat dinner at the White House. (Laughter.)


PRESIDENT BUSH: And the chef is a great person and a really good cook, by the way, Madam President.


Yes, that was said. Transcript is here.

Obama: Dobson "Making Stuff Up"

Now we have James Dobson who is not supporting McCain, now going after Barack Obama. The attacks on his interpretation of the bible, about Obama. Now Obama says this:
Barack Obama said Tuesday evangelical leader James Dobson was "making stuff up" when he accused the presumed Democratic presidential nominee of distorting the Bible.

Dobson used his Focus on the Family radio program to highlight excerpts of a speech Obama gave in June 2006 to the liberal Christian group Call to Renewal.

Speaking to reporters on his campaign plane before landing in Los Angeles, Obama said the speech made the argument that people of faith, like himself, "try to translate some of our concerns in a universal language so that we can have an open and vigorous debate rather than having religion divide us."

Obama added, "I think you'll see that he was just making stuff up, maybe for his own purposes." continue
