  •  Why is McCain beating Obama by 2 pts when his (0+ / 0-)

    press has been terrible. Obama has been blessed with great news coverage so far and yet he still loses to McCain by 2 points per the LA Times/Bloomberg poll. Only 46% think he has enough experience to be president.

    I would not have been comfortable if Obama had a 15 point lead given his massive advantage in the press so far. I know its early but this is a very bad sign.

    All the talk about Obama appealing to Republicans and Independents is bull. If it were true he would be destroying McCain. And Obama has been treated like the medias darling in the mainstream press, on liberal blogs, on liberal radio and even by some Republicans. In addition, he's spent more than any candidate on advertising and he's still losing to McCain.

    Have the Dem's picked another losing candidate for the general election? It sure looks that way to me. I've been telling people to wait a few months and Obama will be taken down by the right. But the man is ALREADY losing. He was a state senator 3 years ago; 1.5 of those years has been campaigning.

    The Republicans run a war hero with decades of experience and we run Richie Cunningham, the community organizer.

    •  And McCain is beating Hillary by 6& in that poll (0+ / 0-)

      so I'm a bit confused as to how we, who haven't even picked our candidate (which I think is a problem) would do better with Hillary rather than Obama?

      The experience thing was going to be a losing battle with Hillary to McCain as well. We need to be able to frame a different and better argument about this. Also the longer this primary is going on, I maintain, the more Obama will lose momentum, not the least of which are some questionable tactics from the Clinton team.

      So what we need to do is pick our candidate, or rather consolidate behind the candidate we have all, but picked and start getting behind him and start working on winning and putting a Democrat in the White House. And hopefully, across the US in various other Congressional elections, as well.

      Hopefully part of this process of moving forward for the party, will be ending this primary with some Obama wins in TX and I hope OH. Though I continue to be worried about them, and am not hearing enough about it here.

      That poll just shows me that we as a party need to start coming together around our guy, sooner than later because yes, it will be tough to fight McCain.
