3rd and Final Presidential Debate - Truly Do or Die for John McCain

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

The watch party has now begun, as the 3rd and last of the 3 scheduled Presidential debates will take place tomorrow October 15, 2008 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, and moderated by CBS's Bob Schieffer.
In my opinion, for John McCain to have his last chance to pull off the election over now favored Barack Obama will require an overwhelming win of the debate on all counts. This fact is pretty much echoed by all talk show and radio show media hosts, except the conservative radio station featuring Rush Limbaugh, who has been dead set on undermining Barack Obama, and will say anything to accomplish his goals.
Rush Limbaugh will bring up William Ayres, Beradine Thorne, Acorn, and the National media. Regardless of what the right wing conservatives say, I still feel that Barack Obama will win this election, and thus again the reason why this blog exists.
Now latest polls show Barack Obama leading John McCain 50 to 42 in the National poll. One reason for this is because of the economy which appears to be crushing John McCain. The national deficit now is double over just last year at 254.9 billion dollars. As far as the electoral votes, Barack Obama now leads John McCain 264 to 174. The target is 270 which means that the first candidate that receives 270 electoral votes will become the next President of the United States.
Now to get to 270 if what is predicted comes true, Barack Obama will now only have to carry one of posibally 7 states to gain victory. These 7 states were in George Bush's column running against John Kerry in 2004, namely Florida, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio and Misouri. For John McCain to win, he would need to win all of these these states to get him up to 274 electoral votes which is now almost an impossible feat to accomplish. Barack seems to be just too far ahead.
One other factor.... Because Barack Obama is a black man, there may be a big surprise in store on the outcome of the election. John McCain may still win the election, regardless of where the polls stand because it may be possible that John McCain will gain a considerable amount of votes just because Barack is black. Three weeks to go and the country will know the outcome on November 4th.
