Polls: Hate Rhetoric Backfires on McCain/Palin

John McCain and Sarah Palin had tried to overcome sliding poll numbers by inserting hate filled rhetoric during campaign rallies last week, but the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll indicates that the hate rhetoric backfired on McCain and Palin.

It found that 59 percent of Americans accused McCain of negative campaigning, while 35 percent said McCain is addressing the issues. A staggering number.

The same Washington Post/ABC News poll also indicates that Obama is pulling away from McCain, establishing a 10-point lead in the race for the White House by a commanding 53 percent to 43 percent.

The most recent state by state polls from the Conservative Right Side Examiner site indicate similar findings as the nationwide polls.
