News from the Votemaster

The PLEOs are starting to move. In the past two weeks two dozen have endorsed Barack Obama. After the Texas and Ohio primaries on March 4, no doubt large numbers of PLEOs will begin to take sides, depending on the results. They could go either way. Many in the party just want a nominee and consider both candidates quite acceptable.

The McCain-Iseman story is continuing but with a focus on whether McCain met with one of Iseman's clients, Bud Paxson, before writing letters to the FCC urging action Paxson wanted. Paxson says he met McCain to discuss the matter. McCain has denied the meeting occurred. If Paxson is telling the truth, this could be more damaging than rumors of a romantic involvement. After all, McCain's appeal is his anticorruption honest-John image. He hasn't campaigned on family values and his messy divorce is already well known.

On Thursday, I mentioned that a smear campaign against Barack Obama is already in full swing. Multiple readers, from different parts of the country, sent copies of the e-mail they had received about him being a Moslem. It is reproduced below verbatim.

  Who is Barack Obama?

Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUSLIM from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white ATHIEST from Wichita, Kansas.

Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii . When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia. When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia. Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a Catholic school.

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is quick to point out that, "He was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school."

Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over his son's education.

Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta . Wahabism is the RADICAL teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world. Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking Major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama hasm joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background.

ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Kuran (Their equivalency to our Bible, but very different beliefs)

Let us all remain alert concerning Obama's expected presidential candidacy. The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the President of the United States, one of their own!!!!

Please forward to everyone you know. Would you want this man leading our country?...... NOT ME!! If you do not ever forward anything else, please forward this to all your contacts.........this is very scary to think of what lies ahead of us here in our own United States ........ better heed this and pray about it and share it.

Here are the new polls.

North Carolina Elon U. Feb. 21 31% 45% 62% 24% 3%

Vermont ARG Feb. 21 34% 60% 73% 9% 11%

The polling results for all states are available as a Web page and in .csv format.

Here are the delegate totals from various news sources. They differ because in most caucus states, no delegates to the national conventions have been chosen yet, just delegates to the district, county, or state convention. Also, some sources try to count the PLEOs (Party Leaders and Elected Officials) and unpledged delegates, who also get to vote at the convention. When different reporters call a PLEO and hear "Well, I like Hillary, but Barack has his charms too" they may score it differently.
