I´m pretty sure he will make it if he doesn't say something very stupid in the next months, or if he won´t be assassinated (it happened before, so I wouldn´t rule that scenario out). Your thoughts?
I think he is the one that the people would be the most likely to vote for. Hillary is more connected though. Also Barak's middle name is Hussein and the right wing is going to attack him on that point if he gets nominated because they could work up the right-wing about having a president with a Muslim name--especially one that is the same as Saddam's. I read a poll that said something like 40% of the viewers of FOX News (right-wing channel) thought that Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11. I think the right-wing would use Obama's name to work up their less-educated people into a frenzy to get them to show up at the polls and vote Republican.
Ron Paul is popular and scary, but if he runs as an independent maybe he will take votes away from the Republicans. Not that the alternatives are much better.
Is there any chance a Republican can win this election? Who? And why? They all seem very pathetic to me, but then you guys have a record of electing pathetic Presidents, if you will pardon my saying so...
Hard to believe that a guy who sat through 9/11 reading "My Pet Goat" got re-elected. We have a corrupt voting system.
I was in South Florida for the last two elections. This video is a joke, but maybe not totally removed from the truth.
Remember the exit polls? Excerpt from the article:
"Recall the Election Day exit polls that suggested John Kerry had won a convincing victory? The media readily dismissed those polls and little has been heard about them since.
Many Americans, however, were suspicious. Although President Bush prevailed by 3 million votes in the official, tallied vote count, exit polls had projected a margin of victory of 5 million votes for Kerry. This unexplained 8 million vote discrepancy between the election night exit polls and the official count should raise a Chinese May Day of red flags.
The U.S. voting system is more vulnerable to manipulation than most Americans realize. Technologies such as electronic voting machines provide no confirmation that votes are counted as cast, and highly partisan election officials have the power to suppress votes and otherwise distort the count.
Exit polls are highly accurate. They remove most of the sources of potential polling error by identifying actual voters and asking them immediately afterward who they had voted for.
The reliability of exit polls is so generally accepted that the Bush administration helped pay for them during recent elections in Georgia, Belarus and Ukraine. Testifying before the House Committee on International Relations Dec. 7, John Tefft, deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, explained that the Bush administration funded exit polls because they were one of the “ways that would help to expose large-scale fraud.” Tefft pointed to the discrepancy between exit polls and the official vote count to argue that the Nov. 22 Ukraine election was stolen."
(bold text is my addition)
Look up "electronic voting machines" and there is a lot of information on the Internet about it.
