    Despite hype, Obama won’t carry Georgia
    By Jim Wooten | Friday, July 18, 2008, 09:24 PM

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    What happened? The throw-the-rascals-out sentiment never materialized at the polls last Tuesday. Incumbents won. Clayton County voters pitched a fit about a sorry school board and the local system’s possible loss of accreditation. And when it came time to do something about it, only one in five bothered to go to the polls.

    The lesson from last Tuesday? For one, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss is more secure than I’d previously thought. Part of it is that both Republican and Democratic incumbents fared well. The same was true for incumbents in the Georgia House and Senate. A loss or a runoff here and there, but through the primary, it’s an incumbent’s year. And Clayton. Passionate people did nothing to follow through. A primary is not a presidential election. People who register now may indeed turn out in November for a historic event — the first general election with a black man as a major-party nominee.

    But, stripped of the hype, it seems even less likely that Georgia could be in play for Barack Obama or that this will be anything other than the usual strongly contested presidential election. Those who are most excited about the Obama candidacy — the young — are historically no-shows at the polls.

    <<Snip<<

    George W. Bush defeated John Kerry in the state by about 550,000 votes in 2004. The last Democrat to carry Georgia was Bill Clinton in 1992. He won by a 14,000-vote margin because independent Ross Perot siphoned off 300,000 — one reason no disenchanted conservative should abandon John McCain for Bob Barr. The primary point to be made here is that a gap exists between political hype and reality. We’re being spun. It is shaping up to be, well, a typical presidential election year — hyper and partisan. Georgia is not in play, the hype notwithstanding.

    The Magic Negro will not win 1 state in the south and I look for him to lose two or three northeastern states. The Obamanuts can get out their crying towels now. :)

    No, Obama will carry all the states in the Northeast. Bank on it.

    There are many whites in the northeast that will not vote for a black man. Liberals like to talk the talk but are not willing to walk the walk. Additionally, independents will not vote for a racist liberal with little experience in government.

    If Obama wins Georgia, McCain scandal not withstanding, I will not be seen at CU again. That being said, see y'all in November.

    Has anything been said about Florida. Most blacks and Cubans I speak with can't stomach the slip speech of Obama. But as I've been saying " Obama is not the anti-Christ, but Satan needs minions too."

    Latest Rasmussen shows McCain ahead


    Election 2008: Florida Presidential Election
    Florida: McCain Leads By Seven
    Monday, June 30, 2008

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Florida shows John McCain leading Barack Obama by seven percentage points, 48% to 41%. One week earlier, it was McCain by eight. A month ago, the Republican had a ten-point lead. This is the sixth straight Rasmussen Reports telephone survey to show McCain leading Obama in the Sunshine State. (See video)

    McCain is now viewed favorably by 57% of Florida voters, a figure that has not changed since the previous survey. Obama is viewed favorably by 44%, reflecting a seven point decline in eight days. Even more dramatic is the fact that 40% of Florida voters have a Very Unfavorable opinion of Obama in the June 26 survey. That’s up from 29% eight days earlier before the debate over offshore drilling escalated.
