Well, the recent polls in ND are swinging John McSame's way. He is leading now by double digits. Not surprising for a state that voted 63% for Bush in 2004. McSame will not win by anywhere close to that margin, which says a lot for the people of ND. However, it is clear that Obama needs to take his resources out of ND and use them in states that will make sure he wins this election. I understand that.
But, don't get discouraged. There are still 43 days left. As we have seen, a lot can happen in just a few days. What the Obama campaign has inspired in ND will not die. There are thousands of local volunteers out there working hard to get Obama elected and to turn ND blue. Activities are happening and you can link in to like-minded people on Obama's web page for North Dakota.
While Obama focuses on Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania and the other battle ground states, we can still work here. The most important thing you can do is talk to your friends and neighbors. Counter the lies and smears from the McSame campaign. Know the truth and talk about it to your fellow North Dakotans. Everyone is talking about politics today on the streets and in the coffee shops. Sway their votes with compelling arguments for the economy, health care, environment and common decency. Obama is now counting on you to bring ND home.
