    AP poll: Working-class and suburban and whites lift McCain to a slender lead over Obama

    By ALAN FRAM , Associated Press
    Last update: September 12, 2008

    WASHINGTON - An overwhelming advantage in experience and lopsided support from working-class and suburban whites have lifted Republican John McCain to a slender lead over Barack Obama less than two months from Election Day, a poll on the presidential race said Friday.

    The poll suggests that perceived inexperience is more of a problem at the top of the Democratic ticket than in the No. 2 spot for Republicans.
    Eighty percent say McCain, with nearly three decades in Congress, has the right experience to be president. Just 46 percent say Obama, now in his fourth year in the Senate, is experienced enough.

    Fully 47 percent say Obama lacks the proper experience — an even worse reading than the 36 percent who had the same criticism about McCain running mate Sarah Palin, serving her second year as Alaska governor after being a small-town mayor.

    There is no correlation between experience and leading. Look at George Bush.

    Word.

    Keep in mind also that the national polls don't mean shit. You have to look at the polling on a state-by-state basis, since the election is decided by the Electoral College, not a plurality. And if Obama wins Ohio and Pennsylvania as he is seems to be (based on those polls), then he will win the election.

    Keep in mind this is the electorate that once gave Bush a 90% approval rating.

    A recent AP poll also showed that the not so slim blue collar, white, middle-class 'Mericuhns still prefer glazed doughnuts to plain cake doughnuts approximately 6 to 4, with a scientific margin of error of about 3%.

    This leads to the obvious question: Ms. Trinity, got milk?

    The Voters believe Palin is more experienced for the job than Obama. period.:tongue: And you know McCain beats him.

    The voters will determine the next president and Obama is behind both McCain and Palin. period.

    The excuses were interesting though....lol

    And yet, if Obama were leading McCain or Palin on experience or leading in the polls period...you wouldn't be dismissing the intelligence of the electorate or the polls. lol

    It is really pathethic that Obama supporters go to the race card whenever Obama is down in the polls. African Americans are only 13% of the population. Whether Obama won or lost he was going to have to garner more than the African American vote. He did in the primary, however now that he is down in the majority demographic its a racism issue?

    This isn't a dumb article. It's a Poll.:rolleyes: It simply states where the electorate is on experience and voting in the Presidential Election. The poll and article show where Obama is losing support and if he is the politician you think he is...that is where he will try to focus on getting that support back. :rolleyes:

    Do they still beat him now that Palin has quit? I don't think so. She's a quitter now.
