Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Just Asking…

Why isn’t Obama barnstorming through Florida? As many, including Nate at 538 have noted, that’s one state that isn’t getting a Palin bounce and perhaps even the opposite. He can capitalize on the wariness over Palin and really start to run up some margins and lock down votes in South Florida. I understand the importance of the Rust Belt, but isn’t a couple days in Florida worth the investment?

Just asking…

  1. It looks like he might be doing it under the radar:

  4. I hope SuzieQ et al is correct and that Obama is “clandestinely” barnstorming through the state–to use your “barnstorming” word, Dansac.

    When I first heard about the selection of Palin–even BEFORE all of her National Inquirer-type of baggage broke–my very first thought was that she would turn off many older voters in Southern Florida. I know that Biden was there (and was Hillary there too?–as I’m not sure) but it seems now that Obama would be the “safer” and even more “dignified” choice in this election to many voters in Southern Florida who may have first had some doubts. And I’m pretty sure that Southern Florida loves the Clintons too–so it truly seems like an opportunity that should not be squandered.
