“…Far From Over…”

This post draws your attention to two articles that are currently featured on the Web site “Political Responsibility Center” at http://www.politicalresponsibility.org/.

First: “Leading Pollster: Presidential Race Far From Over, McCain Can Come Back” by Steven Ertelt, Editor at LifeNews.com, http://www.lifenews.com/nat4421.html.

This article shows what we really already knew, but like to have confirmed — that the outcome of the presidential race is not able to be accurately predicted.

“A leading pollster who made his reputation for correctly predicting the outcome of previous presidential elections says this year’s campaign is far from over. John Zogby says the race between John McCain and Barack Obama is still too close to call. …

He believes there is a large group of undecided voters — especially in battleground states — that could break McCain’s way if they ultimately feel Obama is not yet ready to be president or lacks the experience McCain has for a tumultuous economic time.”

Second: “John McCain Can Still Win Electoral College, Needs 9 Battleground States” by Steven Ertelt, Editor at LifeNews.com, http://www.lifenews.com/nat4419.html.

This article shows how a McCain-Palin win may be possible.

“That leaves the following states in the battleground category still in play: Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, Georgia, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada.

There are six reasons for McCain to find good news in this list of states:

a) These states have gone Republican in each of the last two presidential elections and have a history of embracing Republican presidential candidates.

b) McCain has enjoyed leads for most or all of the election in most of these states and, if Obama has led in any, he has never been over 50 percent.

c) Most of the recent polls in these states show McCain with a lead, the race tied, or Obama only leading within the margin of error — and they are a departure from polls as recently as two-three weeks ago showing McCain trending higher.

d) Many of the polls conducted in these states did not completely include the Vice-Presidential debate, the increased focus on the Obama-Bill Ayers connection, or the trend on Monday and Tuesday in national polls in McCain’s direction.

e) These are mostly states where the pro-life message and conservative positions on cultural issues still resonate.

f) If McCain can win each of these nine states, he will have a 274-264 electoral college lead and win the presidency.

The last point sounds far-fetched, but if McCain can come back enough during the last four weeks to put his standing in the polls back at where it was just a couple weeks ago, he can win all of those states.

Let’s look at each of those states — and they can be broken down into two categories — states where McCain either currently leads, or had a lead recently, and states where Obama has been faring better. …”

From another source, I’ve learned that there are opportunities to help campaign in those battleground states. You can go to http://www.johnmccain.com/Informing/StateContact.htm and click on any of the states where you might be willing to go and help. I also am aware of two particular states that are seeking volunteers to “deploy” to them.

“The McCain-Palin campaign needs your help to win. We need volunteers in Florida and North Carolina from now until Election Day. Can you come to Florida or North Carolina for a day, a weekend, a week, or the final 72 hours of the campaign?

If you are interested in deploying to Florida or North Carolina at your own expense, please send an email to either fldeployment@johnmccain.com or ncdeployment@johnmccain.com based on your preference. We ask that you provide the following information in your email.

  • Name
  • Town and County of Residence
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Dates You are Interested in Volunteering
  • Preferred Location in FL or NC”
