has just released a poll showing Barack Obama leading John McCain by 15-points in a national head-to-head match up. Read more about the Newsweek poll here.
shows Sen. Barack Obama leading Sen. John McCain nationally by six points, 47 to 41 percent. As Chuck Todd points out, Pres. Bush never lead Sen. John Kerry by more than four points in the WSJ poll in 2004.
Hillary Clinton has won the Nevada caucuses. The margin was extremely close given Obama’s poll numbers over the past nine months. Now it’s on to South Carolina.
The Washington Post ran a story this morning noting that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Sen. Hillary Clinton’s (D-NY) campaigns will cross paths this weekend in beautiful Selma, Alabama.
Obama will give the keynote speech at a service honoring the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge on March 7, 1965, the site of “Bloody Sunday.”
Obama (D-Ill.) announced several weeks ago that he would deliver the keynote speech at a service honoring the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, joining Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and other veterans of the civil rights movement in marking the historic event.
Well, where there is an Obama these days, there has to be a Clinton.
Reluctant to give any ground to Obama even at this stage of the campaign, Clinton (N.Y.) decided early last week that she, too, would go to Selma this weekend. She arranged a simultaneous appearance at a church just steps away from the one where Obama will speak Sunday morning, and she agreed to accept a civil rights award on behalf of her husband.
On behalf of her husband? No, team Clinton is bringing out the big boy for this appearance.
Late yesterday, after organizers initially said that the former president had not committed to attend, the Clinton campaign announced that he would be making the trip after all.
President Clinton is showing up to help Hillary after news that Sen. Obama has been gaining ground with black voters in a newly released ABC News/Washington Post poll.
This should be interesting. Stay tuned for weekend coverage of the events in Alabama. Maybe Hillary and Barack can share a flight, or maybe even carpool together.
National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Tom Reynolds (R-NY) is in big trouble. Not only is his party losing its grip on power, he is going to lose his seat in under thirty days.
Reynold’s is toast. He just went up on the air with a lame, weak apology. He looks desperate, sad and just plain weak.
Republicans are bracing for the final four weeks of the campaign season, hoping to avoid fallout from the Foley scandal.
A new poll indicates New York Representative Tom Reynolds re-election effort is being threatened. His challenger Jack Davis has a significant lead in the latest poll.
A Zogby poll conducted for the “Buffalo News” shows Democrat businessman Jack Davis leading Reynolds 48 percent to 33 percent.
In addition, 32 percent said the congressman should be re-elected, while 58 percent said it’s time for someone new.
Critics are blasting Reynolds for not doing enough when he found out about some “overly friendly” emails from Foley to a teenage House page.
The GOP’s favorite maverick Senator – John McCain is STILL raising money for the embattled Reynolds. Again, John McCain is raising campaign funds for one of the men who helped to cover up the GOP predatorgate scandal. This man wants to be the next President?
If you live in the district, go out and get to work for Jack Davis.
It looks like Pennsylvania’s great Governor, Ed Rendell (D-PA) will soar to victory against ex- Pittsburgh Steeler Lynn Swann (R).
In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, Rendell leads Swann by 20%.
We all know that Democratic Senate nominee Bob Casey is trying to ride the Governor’s long coattails into office and is therefore running the worst campaign in the history of Pennsylvania. This 20% spread is encouraging, not only for Rendell, but also for Casey.
A new poll in Ohio has Sherrod Brown, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, leading his opponent Mike DeWine by a couple points.
This one’s gonna be a barn burner.
The University of Cincinnati poll has Sherrod Brown leading his opponent 51% to 47%. That’s certainly a good sign for Brown but this thing is still extremely close.
The DSCC is extremely focused on this race and organizers are on the ground working hard to ensure a Democratic pick-up in Ohio.
