It’s Early Still

27Jun08

An evaluation of swing state polls by Quinnipiac reveals some scary news – Barack Obama is doing as well as John Kerry was four years ago. As with Kerry, folks are just getting to know Barack. While Kerry was dull and cumbersome, Barack has the Obamafia to account for, a much tougher electoral ball and chain. But right now, Barack is looking good in some important states.

COLORADO: Obama 49 – McCain 44
MICHIGAN: Obama 48 – McCain 42
MINNESOTA: Obama 54 – McCain 37
WISCONSIN: Obama 52 – McCain 39

These numbers will change often, but eventually end up on McCain’s side in most, if not all cases.

“November can’t get here soon enough for Sen. Barack Obama. He has a lead everywhere, and if nothing changes between now and November he will make history,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Oh, and, by the way.

“There is a clear consensus among voters in all of these states that they don’t want Sen. Hillary Clinton as vice president and that they see her as a liability for Obama, not an asset.”

Warns Brown:

“But Sen. Obama should not be picking out the drapes for the Oval Office just yet. His lead nationally, and double digits in some key states, is not hugely different from where Sen. John Kerry stood four years ago at this point in the campaign,” Brown added.
