Poll: McCain Leads In Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A new poll shows Republican presidential
nominee U.S. Sen. John McCain leading Democratic U.S. Sen. Barack
Obama in Kentucky.

The Courier-Journal's Bluegrass Poll found that McCain would get
the support of 53 percent of likely voters in Kentucky to Obama's
41 percent if the election were held today.

The poll has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.

The telephone survey of 717 Kentuckians was conducted Sept.
22-25 for The Courier-Journal by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research
Inc. of Washington D.C.

    From what I've seen on the news over the years and from what I've seen about Obama lately, I would not vote for him if he was the last man standing. Not because he's black, I have black relatives that I love! A few years ago our enemies said the way to bring America down is for a Muslim to be voted into the White House. Wake up people, can't you see thats what is happening now?! Common sense tells us Obama is a Muslim all the way and is he gets into the White House America has had it!! He is for everything the Bible tells us to avoid. I shutter to the thoughts of what we're facing if he wins and I pray if its God will he will not win. Everything the Bible has predicted is coming to an end so if its meant to be for him to get into the White House he'll be there no matter what we wish for. I cannot for the life of me figure out after everything we've learned about Obama that any American with any bit of sense would vote for that man. Running for President has been his plan for years.

    ProudKYGal, since there's not a Muslim running from President, I don't think that Ronald McDonald will have much of chance this year.

    I personally dont think we have much to choose from in this election...but before I would vote for a "MUSLIM" I would vote for Ronald McDonald!(and who knows what color his skin really is) Lex1976 Ive got news for you, your house will not be forclosed on if you pay your flipping house payments no matter who gets voted in! So dont blame the government because you would rather run to Wal-Mart on payday instead of paying your bills! Im soooooo sick of people using this excuse for not paying their bills! Stay out of the liquor stores and Wal-Mart for a month and see if your budget doesnt improve!

    ... and today Obama leads with 325 electorial votes to McCain's 180. That's 55 more than Obama needs to win. There are going to be some LONG faces in Kentucky come election night!

    Tell me about it! Why is it that everytime a situation like this comes up, they always have to start playing the racism card? I'm tired of it! Correct me if I'm wrong, but Obama is both, right?! It's kinda hard to call that racism. I wouldn't care if he was black, white, purple, orange, or green, I still wouldn't vote for him! I refuse to vote for someone to be the President of our country that refuses to salute our flag! How sick is that? McCain all the way!

    Most hypocrites in KY won't vote for a black man. You wouldn't believe the so-called Christian people that I have heard say they just can't vote for a black man. A white gay man could run against Obama and win. Just like a local preacher got caught by his wife the other day cheating with a church members wife.. Everyone said pray for Bro.????? and everyone needs to forgive him. I said I don't need to forgive him it wasn't my wife he was sleeping with and there was no need to pray for him because he was getting more sex than I was.

    People. Bickering between who's candidate is the best and some knee-jerk racist accusations is a waste of time. These guys aren't paying my bills or asking me to sit down with them without security clearance or the right nod. For good or bad, the economic plan called for has been rejected in Congress and Wall Street is holding the razor to it's throat by nosediving the DOW 777.68 points (the lowest it's EVER been) to see who flinches first. This goes to show that our Government is powerless to stop this. Now that Congress see's how low it's gotten there is talk of rehashing another economic plan. Now that's some real muscle flexing for you (being sarcastic). Words and more words. Please. For the little people like us, being screwed is screwed, no matter who's in office. See you around and be good.

    It is not the phone polls that matter, only the actual votes. November 4th is election day. Whomever you support, just make sure you vote!!!!
