Poll: Obama Support Low in State
A new poll found little support among Oklahoma voters for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
The Oklahoma Poll found that Republican John McCain has broad support in the state to lead Obama by 32 percentage points, 56 percent to 24 percent. Seventy-one percent of those questioned said they are firm in their decisions.
"I would rather have had somebody different than John McCain on the Republican side, but I can't even believe who the Democrats picked," said poll respondent Billy Garrison, a registered Democrat who often votes Republican.
"I know our country will be in bad shape if Barack Obama is elected president," said Garrison, of Tulsa.
Another erstwhile Democrat, Charles Ogdon of Muldrow, said he believes Obama will be the next president, in part because Ogden believes an Obama presidency would fit biblical prophesies concerning Armageddon and the Second Coming.
But Ogdon isn't happy about it.
So, bad times for the Obama for Oklahoma campaign.
