MANILA – The Filipinos for Obama Movement expresses its supreme satisfaction to the latest ABC News and Washington Post survey showing a super-surge for Democratic Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois as the next President of the United States, defeating Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona by a significant margin of 9 percent.
Filipinos for Obama and their affiliates in the Philippines-America for Obama (Phil-Am for Bam) movement express elation to the recent poll showing Obama now leading by 52 percent against McCain at 43 percent, with 53 percent of registered U.S. voters calling the American economy as the single most important issue in the U.S. election on November 4, up 12 points from 41 percent in two weeks.
The latest ABC News/Washington Post survey also reveals that registered voters think Obama, together with his running mate Democratic Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware as the next U.S. Vice President, can better understand the economic troubles of voters and can better address them than McCain and his running mate, Republican Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
Meanwhile, the latest joint survey from Quinnipiac University, washingtonpost.com, and Wall Street Journal shows that Obama leads McCain by strongly significant margins in election battleground states, with 7 percent in Wisconsin, 4 percent each in Colorado and Michigan, and 2 percent in Minnesota.
The Quinnipiac/washingtonpost.com/Wall Street survey conducted from September 14-21 shows that Obama beats McCain in Wisconsin with 49-42 percent, in Colorado with 49-45 percent, in Michigan with 48-44 percent, and in Minnesota with 47-45 percent, with an error margin ranging from 2.6-2.7 points.
Moreover, the latest Marist Poll shows that Obama trounces McCain by 10 percent in Iowa, 9 percent in Michigan, 6 percent in New Hampshire, 5 percent in Pennsylvania, and 2 percent in Ohio in various surveys conducted by the third week of September with a 4-4.5 percent margin of error.
In the Marist survey, Obama edges McCain in Iowa with 51-41 percent from September 18-21, in Michigan with 52-43 percent from September 16-17, in New Hampshire with 51-45 percent from September 17-21, in Pennsylvania with 49-44 percent from September 11-15, and in Ohio with 47-45 percent also from September 11-15.
