I just wanted to check, but is Obama more likely to win? you see, in a newspaper my dad gets delivered to our house everyday, the main headline was Why McCain has already lost". I just want some clarification and also to know from those who can vot - who are you voting for?
~firegremlin~

Lol, the liberal newspapers (I think that's all of them) and media (ditto except maybe FOX) have been trying very hard to make it appear that McCain was WAY behind (9-13 points or more)....As it turned out he was only 5% behind...

Obama was more likely to win, and it's not surprising, but he wasn't a shoo-in...

I think the idea that people voted for Obama based mainly on the color of his skin is incorrect. Sure there were some, but not as many as you might think. Agree with Obama or not, he was more articulate, had less problems, and remained more calm and leader-like during the campaign. McCain constantly had problems ranging from his temper to Sarah Palin's clothes. Are those fair issues? perhaps not, but it's all about the image. Obama was strong, steady, and calm, while McCain was worried and constantly defending himself. Fair or not, Obama looks like the stronger person, and therefor, the stronger President.

As a history major, this election was especially difficult for me. I used to be a hard-core Republican, and I voted for Bush in 2004....I have, however, moved more towards the center and find myself being an independent, which means I'll vote either way. In the end, I liked both Obama and McCain, making things all the more difficult for me. However, in the end, I felt Obama himself was a leader who had the stronger ability to bring people together, and to take the country in a new direction. I know most of you will disagree with me, but I ended up voting for Obama.
