Hey WV folks… it’s Early Voting time…

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.

 

The latest Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll finds President Obama had a lead of 53% to 42% among the 17% of the surveyed registered voters who said they had already cast their vote. Let’s keep it up!

Want to know the results of Florida’s voter restriction program?

 

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.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT-MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA issued a ruling on August 21 striking down some of the Florida restrictions… especially the trimming down of early voting dates.

Let’s see what happens now.

 

From Talking Points Memo: New Poll Gives Obama Small Lead

A new CNN/ORC International poll released Friday shows President Barack Obama with a narrow three-point edge over Republican nominee Mitt Romney among registered voters nationwide.

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.

51 percent of Americans want to keep or expand health care law

A majority of Americans want Congress to keep the new health care law or actually expand it, despite Republican claims that they have a mandate from the people to kill it, according to a new McClatchy Newspapers-Marist poll.
The post-election survey showed that 51 percent of registered voters want to keep the law or change it to do more, while 44 percent want to change it to do less or repeal it altogether.
Driving support for the law: Voters by margins of 2-1 or greater want to keep some of its best-known benefits, such as barring insurers from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. One thing they don’t like: the mandate that everyone must buy insurance.
At the same time, the survey showed that a majority of voters side with the Democrats on another hot-button issue, extending the Bush era tax cuts that are set to expire Dec. 31 only for families making less than $250,000.
