Shorter NYT Poll: Obama Could Fail This Fall

Just as mid-term exams are indicators of students' study skills, class involvement, and mastery of the material necessary to do well on the final exam, Today's New York Times Dem primary poll indicates that Barack H. Obama's final exam grade (aka the Nov. 2nd election) could be... um, less than stellar.

In Poll, Obama Survives Furor, but Fall Is the Test

WASHINGTON — A majority of American voters say that the furor over the relationship between Senator Barack Obama and his former pastor has not affected their opinion of Mr. Obama, but a substantial number say that it could influence voters this fall should he be the Democratic presidential nominee, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll.


In February, 59 percent called Mr. Obama the stronger candidate, compared with 28 percent who named Mrs. Clinton. In the latest survey, the two were essentially tied.


Mr. Obama would defeat Mr. McCain by 51 percent to 40 percent among all voters, the poll found, and Mrs. Clinton would defeat him 53 to 41.


While just 24 percent of voters said they thought the Wright issue would matter a lot or some to them in the fall, 44 percent said it would matter a lot or some to “most people you know.”


Fifty-eight percent of respondents said Mr. Obama was “tough enough to make the hard decisions a president has to make.” Seventy percent said the same of Mrs. Clinton, and 71 percent of Mr. McCain.

Something else to think about...

When was the last time you heard of a student acing a final exam by wishing and hoping?
