Today’s the day. Early voting starts today in West Virginia and I think Elly and I will be heading over to the Charles Town County Courthouse on Friday to cast our ballots for Obama. Speaking of Obama… he will be doing early voting in Chicago on his current speaking tour. That makes him the first President in office to vote early.
BTW… polls are open on Saturday.

Take a look:
There are about 2 months left for about 114,000 residents who have been shut out of the vote, be they seniors or blacks or hispanics. We should all be working to clean up this mess.
Let’s see what happens now.

According to the poll, Obama garners the support of 49-percent of voters while Romney trails with 46-percent support. The poll, which was conducted May 29-31, included a sample of 895 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
The TPM Poll Average currently shows Obama nursing a very small lead over Romney.
Things are changing slowly and yesterdays economics report won’t help. What happens in June is going to be pertinent to the overall process.
