In the midst of the recent problems on Wall Street, Barack Obama has experienced a surge in the polls. America, it seems, feels more comfortable with Obama than John Mccain when it comes to handling a financial crisis.
"I definitely will be voting for Obama." said Harris Horne of Coos Bay, Oregon. "I would much prefer his lack of banking and lending experience to Mccain, a man just as poorly qualified to handle such a crisis."
"Obama has my vote." said a supporter in Detroit, MI. "He knows what it's like to be middle class. He's been a wealthy lawyer for slightly less time than most congressmen have been, so he's closer to the problems we middle class people face. Barack Obama is the man I'd choose to lead us out of this financial mess, assuming of course that the only other choice was a man who knew just about as little as Obama did about the problem."
Some supporters feel that the current financial crisis was brought on by the Republican administration. An Obama supporter in Great Neck, NY said that a Democrat is needed in the White House because a change is necessary to correct this complicated and involved problem that he doesn't understand in the least, and when that change comes the problem will go away. He also added "And what about health care? I was charged $10 for my cholesterol pills. I don't see John McCain paying for them." An unknown person then added "You tell 'em, Carl."
Some voters, however, weren't so sure. One lady in New Braunfels, TX said that she thought John McCain's wife Shirley was a good actress, especially in "Terms of Endearment," but she also liked Barack Obama as "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air."
