Yeah keep on dreaming, Bob. You have a tough road ahead of you convincing voters to vote on your “values” issues instead of who they think will help the economy more. Right now a majority thinks Obama will be better able to help this country than McCain will. McCain has been desperately trying to shift the debate away from the economy, but the American people just aren’t buying it.
Research has indicated that polls usually come in lower than the actual vote for the more moral of two choices. That’s because the American people have been trained to give the “right answer,” the politically correct answer. Yet many do the right thing once they get in the voting booth.
You’re right about one thing: it’s always a tough road convincing people to do the right thing over the easy thing.
But it’s worth the effort.
