Zogby Polls Narrow to Under 3 Points

The latest Zogby pollshows McCain has decreased his deficit to only 2.7% (within the error margin of 2.9%).  This continues the 4 day trend of a narrowing Obama lead by the Zogby poll.  McCain’s biggest gains have been in the independent voter category, cutting in half the gap there from 16% to 8%.

It appears that recent events, such as ACORN and Obama’s gaffe with Joe the Plumber are starting to show in the polls.  McCain’s appearance on Letterman seems to have gone over well, helping his cause.  Neither candidate should feel safe with 7.1% of the electorate still undecided.  Once again, this race is taking on the look of a close run to the finish.

Racist Obama Effigy Hanging from Noose in Tree

I am certainly no fan of Obama, but it has nothing to do with his race.  I believe racism is wrong (and it also goes both ways).  I’m not sure if this report is for real or if it is someone just trying to get a rise out of people, but either way it’s wrong.

An Ohio resident has hung an effigy of Obama in a noose on his property (video below).  While I respect everyone’s right to express themselves, this makes me disgusted.  It is sad to see this happen in our state.  And, look at this blog posting and see this blog report to observe the two-way nature of this rediculous nonsense.  Sorry folks, but this outlandish racism needs to stop from both parties!

OPEC to Substantially Cut Supplies

According to a Breitbart article, OPEC will make substantial production cuts to lower supplies and stabilize oil prices.  Oil has slowly dropped in prices to a more reasonable level so it’s not surprising OPEC will tighten the spigots to raise the prices again.  Prices are currently around $70/barrel and OPEC claims their target price is $70-90 a barrel.  I have to point out that they weren’t in as big a state of panic when oil was nearing $150/barrel, but they sure are now that it’s dropped back to $70. 

Oil demand has lowered considerably due to the high prices and likely will continue to do so if the prices are again raised.  This just further makes the case that the US needs a solid energy plan that includes both alternative energy development and drilling our own oil reserves.  We need to get our own supplies that are independent of foreign suppliers until we are able to move away from oil to an alternative source.

Rasmussen Shows Obama Up by 5

The latest Rasmussen poll is showing Obama’s lead is 5.  The state polls show McCain down 5 in Nevada, McCain down 6 in Missouri, McCain down 7 in Colorado and a tie here in Ohio.  Polling is always questionable simply due to party weighting, but it’s interesting to watch the trends.  The Rasmussen polls have been fairly steady, but other polls have been fluctuating and showing McCain closing the gap.

Another Joe the Plumber Supports McCain

Came across an article on KnoxNews about another Joe the Plumber that dislikes Obama.  His arguments about Obama are slightly different than the Toledo Joe the Plumber (that doesn’t like Obama’s socialistic “spread the wealth” philosophy).  This Joe prefers experience to inexperience and is choosing to support John McCain.
