Family and friends, now is the time to use your charm and personality to talk with people you meet each day. Don’t be shy. If someone is negative then don’t speak with them but we have to try and ‘touch’ each person that crosses our path each day.
We have to be ambassadors for Senator Obama. He can get us there 75% but we have to help him. Now is not the time to be comfortable or complacent no matter what the polls say. No is the time to work EXTRA hard for Obama. Onward!!!
Ask independents and undecideds what issue in particular is important to them as they make the final decision about who they will vote for. Is it the economy, healthcare, education, jobs, social security, Iraq, energy prices?
You can say something to them to the effect: I support Senator Obama because he UNDERSTANDS the struggles Americans are facing whereas John McCain does not.
Obama has been
· calling for an additional round of rebate checks to help Americans pay for the rising cost of gas,
· senior citizens WILL NOT have to file a tax return if they make less than $50,000
· Obama has offered a plan to make quality health care affordable and accessible for everyone,
· Obama will provide a middle-class tax cut of $1,000 per family for 95% of American families. If your family makes less than $250,000 your taxes WILL NOT increase by even a dime!
McCain will provide more tax breaks to corporations that ship American jobs overseas and McCain will provide NO direct relief AT ALL to more than 100 middle class families.
That’s why I support Obama, will you join us?
The presidential race is still too close to call and could come down to the very last weekend before voters decide if they like or distrust Barack Obama, a national pollster predicts.
“I don’t think Obama has closed the deal yet,” pollster John Zogby told the Herald yesterday.
Zogby’s latest poll, released yesterday in conjunction with C-Span and Reuters, shows Obama and John McCain in a statistical dead heat, with the Illinois Democrat up 48-45 percent.
Zogby said the race mirrors the 1980 election, when voters didn’t embrace Ronald Reagan over then-President Jimmy Carter until just days before the election.
“The Sunday before the election the dam burst,” Zogby said of the 1980 tilt. “That’s when voters determined they were comfortable with Reagan.”
Now voters are wrestling with two senators with opposite resumes – Obama, at 47, the unknown, and the established 72-year-old McCain.
“It still can break one way or the other,” Zogby says.
The three-day survey polled 1,220 likely voters – about 400 people a day. Zogby will continuously poll right up until the November election.
The latest poll numbers may reflect the bump that McCain received after his running mate, Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin sparred with Obama’s running mate, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden during the first and only vice presidential debate last week.
The poll shows that the two White House contenders have no problem attracting support from their own parties.
Obama is winning 84 percent of the Democratic Party support and McCain has 85 percent of the GOP support, but Obama has the edge among sought-after Independent voters.
He leads McCain among independents, 48 percent to 39 percent, according to the poll.
Obama also has support from a slightly higher percent of conservative voters than McCain gets from liberal voters, but the advantage is small, according to the poll.
Pollsters surveyed 1,220 likely voters and asked approximately 39 questions. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
