Obama Evening Wrap Up....Polls.....

Daily Kos has commissioned Research 2000 or R2000 for daily tracking poll results, such as Gallup and Rasmussen. The difference is the poll will be published without any bullshit attached. You will see the break down and can make your own opinion from there. In other words, no spin.

Right now this race is a dead heat. Make no mistake about it. We need all hands on deck and you can start by looking to your left, under "About Barack" and get involved in this campaign.

I am a firm believer that you can win only so much with the "air war", meaning ads on TV, but in the end it is about targeting your voters, getting them to the polls. If you are an early voter state, get them to the polls, sooner versus later.

This race will be won on the ground. Period.

Daily Kos has also commissioned for battleground states. The first one is North Carolina. It appears this poll is in alignment with SUSA, which has an almost 20 point swing to McCain. But PPP and other North Carolina polls have it a dead heat. In other words, somewhere in the middle but we are behind. North Carolina is an early voting state, get those folks to the polls ASAP.


Obama's statement on 9/11

Today, we honor the memory of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001, and grieve with the families and friends who lost someone they loved in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. We will never forget those who died. We will always remember the extraordinary efforts of our firefighters, police and emergency responders, and those who sacrificed their own lives on Flight 93 to protect their fellow Americans. And we give thanks for the Americans defending us every day in our communities at home, and in our military abroad.

On 9/11, Americans across our great country came together to stand with the families of the victims, to donate blood, to give to charity, and to say a prayer for our country. Let us renew that spirit of service and that sense of common purpose. Let us remember that the terrorists responsible for 9/11 are still at large, and must be brought to justice. Let us resolve to defeat terrorist networks, defend the American homeland, stand up for the enduring American values that we cherish, and seek a new birth of freedom at home and around the world.


Voter Suppression Alert
The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOP’s effort to challenge some voters on Election Day.

“We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses,” party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed.

State election rules allow parties to assign “election challengers” to polls to monitor the election. In addition to observing the poll workers, these volunteers can challenge the eligibility of any voter provided they “have a good reason to believe” that the person is not eligible to vote. One allowable reason is that the person is not a “true resident of the city or township.”

The Michigan Republicans’ planned use of foreclosure lists is apparently an attempt to challenge ineligible voters as not being “true residents.”

One expert questioned the legality of the tactic. continue

I hope the Obama Campaign has lawyers in all these SWING STATES, because this is not just going to happen in Michigan, expect it in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Colorado, etc. This is as scummy as it gets.
