Regarding the Presidential election, people generally fall into one of two categories. There are people who are likely to vote Democratic for Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. Then there are people who are most likely to vote Republican for Sen. John McCain of Arizona. The reasons behind their choices will be discussed in detail.
Quite a few people, it seems, are swayed towards choosing Sen. Barack Obama from Illinois as their next President. He is ahead in the polls by most accounts, and early voting will most likely favor Barack Obama. According to Campbell Brown on CNN, Obama has raised $600 million dollars in this campaign, which is equal to what President Bush and Sen. John Kerry raised in 2004 combined. No doubt, Obama is a contender.
But what is it about him that will make voters want to vote for Obama come November 4th? First of all, people who have voted strictly Democratic will probably tend to vote for Obama. Obama also seems to be gaining ground with independents because of his inclusive message. Unfortunately, John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate’s message at the Republican National Convention was divisive and alluded to the culture wars—something that has slowly but surely made its way into McCain-Palin campaign rallies, where cries of “Terrorist” and other nasty verbal threats have been heard, referring to Sen. Obama. All the serious ones have been investigated. Obama will surely appeal to people who definitely want change, as well as leadership for the economic crisis. When the economic crisis hit, Obama outlined a four-point plan and appeared very presidential, calm, cool, and collected, with a clear idea of what to do.
