Wright Poll Numbers

24Jul08

Readers of this blog have been hearing for some time that this election is not about John McCain – the race is Barack’s to win or lose. That’s due to the fact that the fundamentals of the election year so favor a Democrat. People want change – the question is, does Barack represent the change they want. Change can be scary.

Americans are also spending more time fixated on what an Obama administration would look like—a majority, 51%, said they focus more on what kind of president the Democratic senator from Illinois would be compared with 27% who said they focused on what kind of president McCain would be.

If the campaign is about Barack, why isn’t he doing better? People want change – the question is, does Barack represent the change they want. Change can be scary. A new poll from NBC/Wall Street Journal clarifies the fear that Barack may not live up to his slogan – Change You Can Believe In.

…the Arizona Republican senator has an 11-percentage-point advantage over Obama when voters were asked which candidate’s background and set of values they identify with more—58% said that candidate was McCain, while 47% said Obama. In contrast, 34% said McCain does not represent their values, while 43% said Obama does not.

Who do voters feel comfortable with?

McCain also came out ahead, 46%-41%, when voters were asked who would be the “safer choice” for president.

These humps for Barack are Jerermiah Wright humps. They’ll become more problematic in the fall when the Obamafia becomes better known.
