OBAMA WILL WIN - INDEPENDENTS.
CILLIZZA 6/26
 
Independents,
who were widely written off during the 2004 election in favor of appeals by the candidates to theirrespective party bases
, look likely to play a central role in picking the next president in these fourbattleground states.
And for now
, Obama has a clear edge over McCain among independent voters inall four states. That lead is largest in Minnesota, where Obama takes 54 percent amongindependents compared
with just 33 percent for McCain.
The Democrat's lead was 13 points in Wisconsin,12 in Colorado and eight in Michigan.Obama's lead among independents is all the more important given the large number of voterseschewing the two major parties in each state. In Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, roughlythree-in-ten voters identify as independents; in Colorado that number is closer to four in ten. The political environment in each state suggests a decidedly uphill climb for McCain in the generalelection. In Colorado, just 31 percent of voters approve of the way President Bush is handling his job, while 63 percent disapprove. In Michigan, the numbers are even more dismal, with a meager26 percent expressing approval of Bush and a whopping 67 percent disapproving.
B.Lin1. Supporting Alternate Energy Swings Election – its the key issueYoung, 6/24/08
(Eric, NRDC, PR Newswire)
"Tied into both the economy and the environment, energy will be
the defining issue of this election
 
,"
LCV President Gene Karpinski said."The American people demand a new energy policy that breaks our addiction to oil and dirty coal. Members of Congress who fight for aclean, renewable energy future will be back to fight next year 
 
, but those who stand in the way will have to answer to the voters in November.A Gallup poll released today indicates that
energy is the top issue priority for 51% American voters .
(http://www.gallup.com/poll/108331/Obama-Has-Edge-Key-Election-Issues.aspx )."Americans are feeling pain at the pump and many experts say high gas prices are here to stay," NRDC's Energy Advocate Jim Presswoodsaid. "With prices set in the global marketplace and only 2 percent of the world's oil reserves here at home, there is simply nothing we cando to impact prices by drilling. The real solution is clear: we must take bold action to break our addiction to oil and transition to a cleanenergy future. A future where new cars like plug-in hybrids go farther on a gallon of gas, enhanced public transit systems give Americansmore transportation options, and renewable sources of energy power our communities.

2, Increasing Bush’s Popularity is the only way for McCain to win – its the vital internal link andhe can’t distance himself Farmar, 5/21/08
(John, national political correspondent for The Star-Ledger of Newark, Times of Trenton, lexis)
The
most important
name in this November's presidential and congressional elections won't be on the ballot in the fall. It's Herbert Hoo . .. oops, it's Bush
 
, George W. Bush.As if more evidence was needed that Bush is the
chief issue
this year , last week's election of a Democrat in a deeply conservative andusually reliable Republican congressional district in Mississippi, of all places, underscores the fact that he has become toxic for his party
 
, asclose to a pariah as a president can get.Bush, whose approval ratings are lower than any previous president's
 
, may be a nice guy, as his admirers insist, but he has made himself and the GOP label he embodies a liability for all those who'll run under the Republican banner this fall, from John McCain, the party's presidential standard-bearer, to any number of poor blokes running for sheriff in the boondocks.Don't take my word for it. Listen to the leaders of the GOP establishment in Washington. Virginia Rep. Tom Davis, for one, served as thecanary in the mine shaft after the stunning victory May 13 of Democrat Travis Childers in Mississippi.In a 20-page memo to his House Republican colleagues, Davis wrote that "the political atmosphere facing Republicans this fall is the worstsince Watergate and is far more toxic than it was in 2006." The GOP lost 30 House seats two years ago in districts that stretched from coastto coast; it could lose up to 25 more this year, Davis said.Republicans have gone through this kind of ordeal before, in each case as a result of a national revolt against a GOP president. In 1932,Herbert Hoover and Republicans suffered a crushing defeat, ushering in the New Deal era under Democrat Franklin Roosevelt. In November 1974, Republicans paid for Richard Nixon's breach of the public trust even though Nixon had resigned.Davis was not alone. "The Republican brand is down, and it is going to be hard to get it back," lamented Rep. Devlin Nunes, a CaliforniaRepublican. And New York Republican Rep. Peter King even suggested that, for safety sake, Republicans may have to find another identity- like figures in the witness protection program, say."You are going to have to run on who you are," King said, "and establish some independence, and that is going to be tougher for some thanothers."What's ironic here is that many of the same Bush Republicans had little or no use for McCain who, because of his frequent breaks withRepublican orthodoxy - on embryonic stem cell research, campaign finance reform and global warming - wears the GOP brand morelightly than most. But even McCain has the Bush monkey on his back 
 
, as Mike Huckabee, his erstwhile rival for the presidency and now astaunch supporter, observed after Childers' victory in Mississippi."The Republican brand is badly damaged," Huckabee said. McCain, he said, "can't run on the Republican brand."How McCain can escape it, however, remains a mystery. He's
tied hand and foot to Bush
on the president's Iraq policy. But even more potentially damning is McCain's embrace of the Bush's unwise and unfair tax cut regime, which, if kept in place, would make it virtuallyimpossible to deal rationally with the country's debt and entitlement spending problem - a first step toward restoring the value of the dollar.
