There is still way too much campaigning yet to happen to be committing to someone this early.

What about a "I'm going to let it play out before I decide" category?

LOL.

Didn't realize that.

No, I'm not ashamed to put my name next to oldie, he's just not my first choice. Although he is above Obama.

But I'm not sure who all will be on the ballot come November. Therefore, I prefer to remain in the "other" category.

Chuck Baldwin, Constitution Party
Bob Barr, Libertarian Party
Ralph Nader, Independent

McCain losing big with Latinos

Source: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0708/12020.html

John McCain is winning a paltry 23 percent of the Hispanic vote compared with 66 percent for Barack Obama, according to a large poll released Thursday by the Pew Hispanic Center.

While Obama’s lead among Hispanics is not drastically ahead of where Democratic nominee John Kerry stood in the summer of 2004, McCain trails President Bush’s standing at this point four years ago.

At that time, Pew found that Hispanics broke 62 percent for Kerry and 32 percent for Bush. Exit polls later found that Bush earned the support of about four in 10 Latino voters.

That difference — from Hispanics breaking 2-to-1 for Democrats to nearly 3-to-1 today — is enough to send shockwaves through GOP circles. Republicans had hoped that McCain’s politically risky support for immigration reform, which infuriated many conservatives, would offer a unique opportunity to bring Hispanic voters back to the party fold.

“That number should be very, very sobering for the McCain campaign,” said Tony Fabrizio, the pollster for 1996 Republican nominee Bob Dole. “The bottom line: Despite all of this positioning he’s taken on immigration, it’s shielded him nothing with Hispanics and it’s another point of distrust with Republicans.”

For months, other surveys have also revealed McCain’s weakness among Hispanics, with his support generally bracketed in the 20 percent to 30 percent range. The Gallup poll’s most recent report pegged McCain with 29 percent support.

But the precision of the Pew poll makes its findings especially troubling for the McCain campaign. Utilizing Spanish-speaking interviewers, who offered respondents the chance to speak in Spanish or English, Pew sampled 2,015 Latinos from June 9 to July 13. Its electoral breakdown was based on 892 registered Hispanic voters, with a margin of error of 4.4 percent.

The Pew data comes on the heels of months of McCain advertising on Hispanic television and radio in Florida, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada. On Wednesday, the Obama campaign announced its first media buy of the general election on Hispanic radio in the same states. Obama has not yet purchased advertising on Hispanic television.

“You have to understand in a way that the Republican Party is damaged among Hispanics,” said Hessy Fernandez, McCain’s spokeswoman for Hispanic media. “But at the end of day it’s the contrast between Sen. McCain and Sen. Obama.”

I'm interested to see who will win the vote. I think there will be too many people who would be opposed to voting for Obama which means we're stuck with another 4 years of a crappy economy.

One thing I really don't hold W responsible for (completely) is the economy...bad days come and go. I am just curious/anxious to see how long the dip will last considering mad spending over the last 8 years...

Shouldn't they be abolished? Or at least changed to return them to private hands?

It's hard to plan for retirement without Social Security included in the retirement income stream. But if it were private, and I could choose my investments (like my IRA) and have ultimate control of the money, it would be a far better thing. And it should be investments, rather than socialized benefits that are not investments at all!

What Social Security is for anyone not collecting benefits is simply a promise by the governement to pay us in the future.

I don't trust government and their promises.

Social Security is broken, and must be completely reworked, or abolished. Other social programs need to be transitioned to the states for funding, design and implementation. The federal government should have no role and make no mandates.

Scott, I don't believe that was my point. Many people scream that one candiate is a socialist over the other. When in fact some of each of their programs contain some elements of socialism. As a matter of fact, if you have a SS card, you're willing a member of socialism, if you want to get technical.

So I'm not sure that people who scream Socialism really understand Socialism. They're just watching tv and repeating what they've seen.

So why are we forced to contribute to something we may never see benefit from? Do we get our money back from it? Who's responsible for it?
