Two New Polls Show Obama Pulling Away

Tim Craig

Coming on the heels of this morning's Washington Post Virginia poll that showed Democrat Barack Obama with an 8-point lead over Republican John McCain, Virginia Commonwealth University plans to release a statewide poll today.

According to an advance copy, VCU also finds Obama with a healthy lead in Virginia. Among likely voters, Obama is drawing 51 percent compared to McCain's 40 percent, according to VCU.

"Obama's lead looks strong in both Northern Virginia as well as in the Tidewater region," said Cary Funk, director of the Commonwealth Poll and associate professor at the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs.

Obama is up by 27-points in Northern Virginia in the VCU poll, compared to his 30-point lead in the region in the Washington Post poll. VCU also has Obama leading McCain by 21 points in Tidewater; the Washington Post pegged the Democrat's lead there at 17 percentage points. In both polls, Obama is drawing between 38 percent and 45 percent in all other, more conservative regions, of the state.

VCU also found that Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's job approval rating is slipping. Just 48 percent of voters rate Kaine's job performance as excellent or good, a 6-point decline since May. Nearly half of Virginians now say Virginia has gotten off on the wrong direction, according to VCU.

Let's all review how this year, not decades ago. OBAMA REFUSED TO DISAVOW Rev. Wright and his BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY TEACHINGS.


What is worse is that Obama exposed his children to the HATE OF BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY FOR YEARS.


EXPOSED HIS CHILDREN TO THAT RACIST HATE UNTIL IT BECAME POLITICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR OBAMA TO CONTINUE TO BRING HIS CHILDREN TO THE RACIST CHURCH !


IF A WHITE candidate had a similar church, the Washignton Post would be railing against that candidate.


The bias is great, the racism is unbelievable. The media has given Obama so many passes.


Then they have to go and get some FALSE CHARGES FROM DECADES AGO.


Investigate Obama and his democratic friends in Chicago.


Investigate his friend REZKO who has been indicted and whose story much of America does not know.


Investigate all the connections between Michele Obama and Farrakhan.


BE SERIOUS MEDIA.


YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING DRINKING THE KOOL-AID OF THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN TALKING POINTS AS IF IT WERE TRUTH.
