Steve Corbett, a radio talk show host in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, received a copy of an internal email sent by Grant Olan who heads the Wilkes-Barre headquarters of the Obama campaign. The email went to 627 Obama campaign volunteers in the Wilkes-Barre Scranton region, saying that Obama Headquarters reported an internal poll which shows that Obama is only 2 points up in Pennsylvania.
Sean Smith, who is heading Obama's Pennsylvania campaign, was interviewed by Steve Corbett via phone at 5:35 today to discuss this. He said that Grant "went rogue", and aknowledged that Grant was "reprimanded" for this. Sean would not deny that the internal poll showed this, and his words were carefully chosen.
We have to tell the voters about the coal issue more blatantly, particularly in the Pittsburgh market.
Like McCain doesn’t have competent pollsters?
Thats without bradley, if he is up two in internal polling odumbo is history
This would explain the heavy campaigning by McCain-Palin in PA!
We are going to win PA!!!
Up 2% now, three weeks before election day is a very weak position especially since the polls will tighten before then.
and when we get a sneak peak at an internal from either side , trust it more than any media invented poll.
What it shows me is what a lot of people have been saying for months. This election is going right down to the wire. All of these gloom and doom polls and electoral college landslides for Barry have a purpose ... to make the conservative base stay home because it’s a “lost cause.” It’s not. McCain-Palin can still win. The MSM has been in the tank for quite some time. That’s why they are not to be trusted. If they say Barry is up 5 or 6 in one state, it’s probably tied. One poll had Barry up 8 in West Virginia. NO WAY!!! Absolutely, NO WAY!!! These polls are complete BS.
McCain supporters are foolish to believe these media polls.
I know there is some risk of that but they really should look at polling in previous elections.
This is a concerted effort at vote suppression by the Media.
The pollsters are under huge pressure to jack up these polls for the ONe.
Why would they need to work harder if they were up 10 pts. like the media polls show?
“Look at where the candidates are campaigning and look at the crowds each draw , don’t look at the media invented polls.
and when we get a sneak peak at an internal from either side , trust it more than any media invented poll.”
Good advice! Thanks!
The only thing that bugs me about the poll suppression theory is that McCain’s campaign acknowledges he’s down 6 nationwide (as of yesterday). I think it’s all about the Dem weightings based on bogus ACORN registrations. Just wonder if McCain camp uses same weightings as other polling outlets?
Thought you would take great interest in this.
Thats before the ads about odumbos talk with the plumber. Odumbo cannot pull away and I have not seen a McCain ad here in so fl in weeks
That’s more like it. It explains why both campaigns have been pushing hard lately in PA.
“I spoke with someone today who said that NH is very much game for McCAIN”
What also lends credence to this is Obama’s focus on campaigning in Philly, in which should be a lock for him.
You can tell by looking at Mac’s campaign calander that they think they have a good shot at taking PA & NH.
