AP/Yahoo shows Obama leading McCain by two points, 44%-42%

Hey, This Race Might Be Winnable
A lot of the state polls look pretty bad for McCain lately, but there's been an interesting shift in the tracking polls.

* Rasmussen’s Presidential Tracking poll now shows Barack Obama leading John McCain by four points, 50 percent to 46 percent. At one point, Obama was up by 8. * Gallup’s national tracking poll of likely voters has Obama leading McCain by two points, 49 percent to 47 percent. * AP/Yahoo shows Obama leading McCain by two points, 44%-42% * The Reuters/C-Span/Zogby national tracking survey shows Obama leading McCain by five points, 49%-44%. * The GW/Battleground tracking poll has Obama leading McCain by four points, 49%-45%.

The other thing is, in most of these, if there's been movement, Obama's been pretty consistent - right around, or just under, 50 percent. McCain's gains have come from undecideds.

It has been argued that this election is a referendum on Obama, and I largely concur. The endless magazine covers, the ubiquitous commercials, the posters, the stadium rally, his own channel on some cable systems, the postponement of the World Series for his half-hour national address... If you see him as a presidential and ready for the job, you're for him; if you don't, you don't and you vote for the other guy.

(Interesting that McCain referred to Obama during one debate as "that one" since to a lot of voters, McCain is "the other one.")

Obviously, I'd rather be up by four or five than down by four or five. But I'm not sure the instant demonization of Joe the Plumber helps Obama with all of those waverers in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Tom A JULY 30, 2019 He, like many, defend the institution with the zeal that should be used to defend the Faith. Sad. What Mr. Voris fails to admit is that it is the institution of the conciliar fake church that is the biggest enemy of the Faith.

(AP) for the priest Mr. Voris defends, Rev.Eduard Perrone of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church also known as Assumption Grotto, is co-founder of Opus Bono Sacerdotii.

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of
