McCain leading Obama now

Latest polls show Obama trailing from between 5 and 9 points, losing some of his base support to McCain, and public opinion generally believes he is weak on the economy. What has happened! It seemed like a little while ago he was almost a sure bet! This is starting to scare me! Four more years of a republican leader?

Obviously, but the electoral college votes are determined by the votes of the populace, and while not a guarantee, you are likely to win an election if you win the majority of people.

This is a sudden change! Well the game is not over yet. Unless the real election tells us who won we perhaps should still keep our fingers crossed by now. It seems that your bet is Obama. You may have good reasons for your choice. What could be wrong with a republican leader? As as for me, I really have no choice yet because I've not really read both of their platforms. Anyway, I pray America will be led by the best man. Whatever happens to America is the concern of the world. So may God bless America.
