Politics: Obama Set’s New Record
Posted October 19, 2008on:
Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama, set a new record at a Missouri rally on Saturday:
100,000 people in St. Louis, Missouri gathered under the Gateway Arch to hear Sen. Obama speak on taxes and slam the Republicans on economic issues. The largest turnout ever for a Presidential candidate at a rally. For Missouri being a particularly red state (Republicans), this is a major feat, but don’t get your hopes up. Experts say that big crowds don’t always mean a big turnout on Election Day (which is only 16 days away– that’s 2 weeks!). Check out the report:
For months Missouri polls put Obama as much as ten percentage points behind Republican John McCain. It was widely believed that McCain’s pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate would have won over the state’s conservatives and boosted his chances there. So far, that hasn’t happened. A Rasmussen poll released on Friday shows Obama leading in Missouri 52% to 46% for McCain.
No matter who you’re voting for, get out and vote on November 4th. Be the change you want to see in this world.
