TID readers want Obama to run
The recent Inside Dope Poll asked the compound question, "Will Sen. Barack Obama run for president in 2008, and should he?"
As to whether Obama actually WILL run in 2008, 63% of voters feel that he will, 38% think he won't.
As to whether Obama SHOULD run in '08, 66% felt he should run in 2008, 35% feel that he shouldn't for one reason or another.
SHOULD run edged out WILL run 66 to 63
A total of 32 votes were cast and the results are:
- Obama will run and should run in 2008 - 15 votes or 47%
- Obama will run, but shouldn't in 2008 - 5 votes or 16%
- Obama will not, but should run in 2008 - 6 votes or 19%
- Obama won't, and shouldn't, run in 2008 - 6 votes or 19%
And for the person who always writes in to tell me that these polls aren't a 100% accurate scientific poll that reflects public opinion accurately, save your breath. Anyone with a few sparking brain cells can figure that out themselves.
