Obama and McCain, their race to the White House
While the CNN reported that 76% of Americans believe that the US is ready to follow a black President, a recent poll done by USAToday said that deep-seated racial misgivings might cause Barrack Obama the White House seat.
Issues like McCain being the oldest possible first term President and his link to President Bush may not compensate for the 40% all white Americans that hold partly negative views towards black.
While we believe that the U.S. is ready for a black President, the election in November is yet to decide if Obama is the right fit for the U.S. Presidency.
Being a Democrat candidate, we believe that Obama has a good chance for the Presidency. However, because 3 out of 10 Democrats do not trust that Obama can deliver the change that the Americans are looking for said, that they are inclined to vote for McCain.
This could be a major slap in the candidacy of Obama.
This may however chance because of the wide advantage of Obama as against McCain because of his Economic experience. In addition, the acceptance speech of McCain received lower ratings as compared with Obama who received 35% approval as against the 15% of McCain.
The possibility of the two presidential candidates is on a stiff highs and lows, thus it is very hard to predict the outcome of the election in November.
The next couple of months may be important and would be determinant for the race of the two candidates, let us follow through their campaigns and discuss what would be the factors that will define who will seat in the White House.
