Events & News – 9/26/08

Friday, September 25, 2008

Stay current with the blog posts as things are hopping so fast we are struggling to keep up.  We decided to just post as we get news instead of waiting to night to post.  We could use another helper or two.  We can’t monitor everything and work too.  LOL (We are not paid Obama or McCain staff)

Other News

Berg v. Obama, et al. Civil Case No. 08-cv-04083
 
Update – Per factcheck.org on Obama’s Fight the Smears website.

“When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”

[Editor note: I’m still not sure what all of this means.  Philip Berg still insists there is a constitutional issue.  I’m wondering about the Indonesian passport he allegedly traveled on when he was 20.  At any rate, you can watch the drama here.

The Horserace

Sept. 23/25

Sept. 19/20

Obama

43.8%

46.8%

McCain

45.8%

43.4%

Not sure/Other

10.4%

8.8%

The big shift in the race appears to have come among independent voters, where McCain now leads by nine points, 43% to 34%. In the survey conducted over the weekend, Obama led by one point among independents.

Both candidates have a sturdy grip on their political bases, the survey shows. McCain and Obama each win 88% support from voters in their respective political parties.

Among men, McCain leads by a 53% to 35% margin, up 15 points from the weekend survey. Among women, Obama leads by a 52% to 39% margin, up 5 points from the weekend survey.

The survey, half conducted before McCain’s announcement Wednesday that he would suspend his campaign to concentrate on the financial crisis and half conducted after the announcement, shows movement in McCain’s favor after his announcement. Before the announcement – which included about half of the total polling sample – Obama led by one point.  But McCain led by 5 points in polling completed after his statement about the suspension of his campaign. Overall, the interactive survey, conducted Sept. 23-25, 2008, included 4,752 likely voters nationwide and carries a margin of error of +/- 1.5 percentage points.
