Barack Obama drew 100,000 people to a St. Louis rally today, his biggest US crowd to date. A St. Louis Police Dept Lieutenant confirmed the figure for the Wall Street Journal.

He spoke about taxes and the economy, slamming Republicans for their positions. Senator Claire McCaskill, D-MO, introduced him with harsh words for the GOP vice presidential candidate.

Referring to comments Palin made earlier this week in North Carolina about “pro-America” states, McCaskill said “We have reached a new low in America politics when a candidate dares to say that one part of America is pro-America and another part is anti-America.”

For months, Obama lagged in the polls in Missouri, down by as much as 10 points at times. The most recent Rasmussen Poll, released yesterday, showed Obama leading by 6 points, 52% to John McCain’s 46%.


The latest Newsweek poll shows Barack Obama has a 15-point lead over John McCain among registered voters nationwide. Obama is favored by 51% to McCain’s 36%.

The poll finds Obama benefitting from voter discontent with President Bush and his policies; he is also gaining ground among voters who supported Hillary Clinton.

The survey of 1,010 adults nationwide on June 18 and 19, 2008 has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Those Michigan and Florida delegates are still on Hillary Clinton’s mind and she might take this fight to the Democratic convention. Do you think she should?

Since I don’t believe in putting words into people’s mouths, I’m offering bare-bones choices. Feel free to leave comments about why you feel the way you do. Voting ends June 5, after the primaries are all done. Finally.

Thanks for taking part!

Zogby presidential poll results May 21 2008

A new Zogby poll of likely voters nationwide finds Barack Obama with a 10-point lead over John McCain, 47% to 37%, in a four-way contest that includes Liberal Ralph Nader and Libertarian Bob Barr. When Obama is excluded and Hillary Clinton included, McCain leads by one percentage point.

The poll also finds Obama leading in the East, West and South while he and McCain are virtually tied in the rest of the country. Also, the only demographic group in which McCain leads is 65 and older. As a group, seniors tend to be among the most likely to actually follow through and cast votes. 

Zogby says the poll hints that Barr “could do some serious damage to McCain by stealing support among the very conservative and libertarian voters.”

The telephone poll of 1,076 likely voters has a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
