58% of Americans are “Wright” about Obama

Posted by Ryan on May 2, 2008

Stemming the conversation away from Obama and the Democ-“Rat” Race has been tough lately, but this was too good to pass up!

Scott Rasmussen released a poll today which attempted to gauge the political fallout from the recent remarks on Obama’s old Reverend Wright debacle.  A whopping 58% of respondents believe that Obama condemning Wright this week out of “political convenience,” rather than pure outrage!

Well, duh! 

I think this is significant, not because Obama had any new damage done to him, but this poll increases the sense that the damage Reverend Wright has done to Obama’s campaign, image, and chances is deep, lingering, if not permanent. 

What’s a superdelegate to do if this holds into the Fall, right about the time Obama’s Reverend releases his book?  All Wright has to do is say that Barack was there during one of those classic tirades Obama said he knew nothing about and all bets are off.

McCain’s Keeping Cool

Posted by Ryan on March 20, 2008

Spring’s only been here less than a day, but the season bodes well for John McCain, who must really like this new Rasmussen poll, which puts him solidly ahead of She Who Must Not Be Named (51-41%) and diminishingly messianic Obama (49-42%). 

While McCain goes on international fact-finding missions in Iraq and Israel, looking presidential and meeting world leaders while accumulating an increasingly robust series of photo ops, the two Dems continue to bludgeon each other, fight off controversy or create new issues in desperation
