Obama Leads McCain in Prince William County

Tim Craig

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama appears well positioned to win Prince William County this year, according to a new poll by Politico and Insider Advantage.

As part of its series on battleground counties nationwide that could decide the election, Politico's poll found Obama with a 8-point lead over GOP nominee John McCain in Prince William. Obama gets 50 percent of the vote compared to McCain's 42 percent.

In 2004, President Bush carried Prince William by 7 points. Politico notes Prince William County supported Republican presidential candidates by an average margin of 18 points between 1976 and 2004, but Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) and Sen. James Webb (D-Va.) both narrowly carried it in their races in 2005 and 2006.

If Obama handily wins the Prince William this year, McCain would likely lose Virginia's 13 electoral votes. McCain plans to make his first campaign stop in Prince William tomorrow when he holds a rally in Woodbridge.

TO ALL MY FRIENDS…
LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE…
FYI only.

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at
a 2 1/2 year high
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%
4) The DOW JONES hit a record high– 14,000 +
5) American’s were buying new cars, taking
Cruises, vacations overseas, living large!

But American’s wanted ‘CHANGE’! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes–we got ‘CHANGE’ all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon
And climbing!
3) Unemployment is up to 5.5%
(a 10% increase)
4) Americans have seen their home equity
Drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS
And prices are still dropping
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another
Low ~~ $2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS
EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS,
BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS
INVESTMENT PORTFOLIOS!

YES, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE…AND WE SURE GOT IT!

REMEMBER THE PRESIDENT HAS NO CONTROL OVER ANY OF THESE ISSUES, ONLY CONGRESS DOES.

AND WHAT HAS CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE IS GOING TO REALLY GIVE US CHANGE, AND HE HAS THE BACKING OF A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS!!!!

JUST HOW MUCH MORE ‘CHANGE’ DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?

How very amusing. Did Karl Rove write this drivel for you or was is Scooter Libby?

What a crock. The problem was created years earlier. Find Phil Gramm. He can explain it to you.
