Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Another Ohio Question

Does the Obama campaign have polling that suggests they’re just not going to win Ohio? Or suggest that they’re going to win it handily? I’m not really sure what’s going on, but as I pointed out earlier, early voting ends on October 6th. We now have Obama’s schedule through the 5th: PA, VA, and NC.

More than that, it’s been a long while since he’s visited the Buckeye State. I realize his time is limited, but one has to wonder what’s the strategy behind that.

  1. Dan, I have been wondering that too.

    Early voting is key this week in Ohio and I know there is massive ground activity. Just not this week, but up to the election to get folks to the registrar’s office and vote early. So, no Obama stop in the buckeye state?

    One thing about the Obama Campaign, they have extreme discipline, they never show their cards unless they must.

  2. That’s interesting. I didn’t know they hadn’t been there in that long. It is odd…

  3. Today’s Gallup Daily Tracking Poll: 49% Obama, 42% McCain.

    It was 48%, 44% yesterday.

    They can keep praising Palin, but Biden got it done!

  4. My guess is that the Obama campaign doesn’t really want to draw attention to Ohio’s early voting. At least not nationally. McCain’s campaign is in disarray, and there’s no reason to let them know how hard he is pushing things there.

    Check out this great post from The Field:

    They are transporting busloads of people to the polling places as we speak. This isn’t the time for the casual voter, this isn’t the time to get McCain to realize how behind he actually is. This is the time to get as many of Obama’s “strong” supporters to the polls as possible, so on election day you can focus your entire ground game to getting out those who are less enthusiast and converting the last-minute undecideds.

  5. You’re absolutely right. Obama has cornered the thug and homeless vote in Ohio. He has every right to be proud. He is a man of outstanding character and virtue. Hahahahahahaha!
