In 2004, when President Bush won his second term, there was a lot going on in that election. Multiple states had votes on Same-Sex Marriage and Constitutional Amendments, and exit polling offered a bewildering statistic that created the term “Values Voter.”
Many credited Pres. Bush and his adviser, Karl Rove, with orchestrating the perfect “Get-Out-The-Vote” scenario, by placing the issue of gay marriage (something that a majority of Americans oppose) on a Presidential Ballot—hence inflating the turnout of social conservatives and handing the election to Pres. Bush.
No, I don’t think that McCain stands a chance in California, but it is an interesting state to watch. Why? Because the Supreme Court of California legalized Same-Sex marriage, and a recent commercial by San Francisco mayor, Gavin Newsom, have basically told the people “it’s here, deal with it” has made this vote all the more interesting, and much closer than previously reported.
Mark Foley was replaced because, as a homosexual, he flirted with the pages. He was replaced by someone that claimed he was ethically above board—only to be investigated because he’s in two, simultaneous, affairs.
This is the issue that will not go away.
- 11 year old with voting registrations? Check.
- 72 registrations for one person? Check.
- Mickey Mouse registered? Check.
And if fictitious people are donating money to Sen. Obama (which may or may not be foreigners), how can we assure that these people won’t show up to vote too? I mean, illegals can easily get social security numbers so it can’t be that hard.
I bet that ACORN is really worried about losing funding—as they should.
All of this is not good for Sen. Obama’s campaign. Say what you will about angry crowds—when it looks like you’re trying to steal an election, and you mix that with other unpopular issues you support, it’s amazing that he’s still leading in the polls.
Or can we trust the polls? Since some have been getting tighter and others have not?
