Zogby reports that Bob Barr is sapping critical conservative and other independent voters away from John McCain, who now trails Obama in national polls by 6 percentage points (44% favor Obama, 38% favor McCain). That 6% is the exact level of national support going to Barr, according to Zogby. Of course, a lot could change between now and November, and Barr will probably not get that large a percentage when people actually vote, but it still represents a huge threat to McCain, both in terms of impacting his fundraising ability as well as elevating the hurdles he must jump to win in November.
If Democrats sweep this election, as many are predicting, it will spell the end of our constitutional republic as we know it, and precipitate an economic collapse the likes of which we as a nation have never before experienced. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that the Democrats fail in their efforts. No matter how disenchanted you are with the current crop of Republicans, they are the only political organization standing between us and utter disaster.
