Straw poll of 325,200 voters:Obama 38 % Mc Cain 62 %,What think you of those apples ?

ST. LOUIS (July 5) - Barack Obama celebrated "active faith" as an obligation of religious Americans and a chief agent of societal change while speaking Saturday to a nearly all-black roomful of churchgoers, but hoping to reach far beyond them.

Earlier in the day as he flew from Montana to Missouri, Obama told reporters he was surprised at how the media has "finely calibrated" his recent words on Iraq, and reaffirmed his commitment to ending the war if elected.
McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said Obama needs to "understand that his words matter."

"We are all absolutely committed to ending this war, but on Thursday Barack Obama's words indicated that he also shared John McCain's commitment to securing the peace beforehand," he said.

Making a less than two-hour stop in the battleground state of Missouri, the Democratic presidential nominee implored the thousands attending a national meeting of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, one of the nation's largest and most politically and civically active black denominations, to help fix national and local ills.

He preached individual responsibility, saying he knew he risked criticism for "blaming the victim" by talking of the need for parents to help children with homework and turn off the TV, to pass on a healthy self-image to daughters, and teach boys both to respect women and "realize that responsibility does not end at conception."

But Obama's main message was the government's duty to address what he said are "moral problems" — such as war, poverty, joblessness, homelessness, violent streets and crumbling schools — and to employ religious institutions to do it.

"As long as we're not doing everything in our individual and collective power to solve the challenges we face, the conscience of our nation cannot rest," he said.

Obama, who has made history by becoming the first black major-party presidential nominee, made frequent references to the civil rights movement and continuing struggles in the black community.

I don't think much of straw polls cause they are media stunts. Romney had paid people voting 3 and 4 times a piece at these events last year (which is legal in Straw polls). Just google the video footage of Romney stuffing ballots.
And he won more than McCain.
Ron Paul won the majority of straw polls in the fall...so that tells you how much worth they are.

Wasn't this Bush's platform during the 2000 election, and wasn't it titled "compasionate Conservatism" and Personal resposibility...


well if you strike out the gov't duty part...

My father keeps calling him Carter. Sometimes it's hard for me to tell whether he's cussing at something Obama said or something that the real Carter did.

You can click on each state - McCain has 82% in Louisiana!

In our primary, Huckabee actually beat McCain.

You're right. :D I just call him O because I dislike him so much that don't like wasting time typing out Obama.

Thanks for mentioning it; hadn't noticed it. I randomly checked some of the states. So far haven't seen one where Obama is leading, not even in Illinois or DC. :eek:

This is very interesting, to say the least.

Sometimes its hard to tell the difference between the two.

Although I believe that Obama has so far avoided any killer rabbits.
