New polls in two states: Cynthia McKinney research

There is a CNN/Time/Opinion Research Poll finished Sept.2nd. The results:

Cynthia McKinney at 2% in Iowa.

Interesting: Most articles don’t list the specifics of what the alternative candidates received in the Minnesota Poll. Though, many of the articles point out that in Minnesota, Obama is leading by 12% in a straight-up, two-way race. But, with the addition of the other candidates as choices, Obama’s lead in the poll EXTENDS to 14%.

Washington, D.C. (AHN) – Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is ahead of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in two of three swing states, a new CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corp. poll says.

The Democratic nominee leads 55-40 percent in Iowa, where Obama won the first contest of the primary season in January. In a five-man race including third-party candidates, Obama leads McCain 51-38 percent. Independent Ralph Nader has 4 percent, Libertarian Bob Barr 3 percent, and Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney 2 percent.


Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is ahead of McCain, 53- 41 percent, according to the latest CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corp. survey. The freshman Illinois senator gains a 14-point lead if Independent Ralph Nader, Libertarian Bob Barr and Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney, who all have less than 5 percent support, are taken into account.

  1. “…five-man race…”

    That’s funny. Why not just say “…four man and one woman race…”

  2. Oh. Glad that it was a quotation and me who made the feminist faux pas.

    Yeah, it is funny that a reporter or editor did not notice that. At least I guess they could have said “5-way” race or “5 person race”.

    I get in trouble sometimes for saying “manpower”, especially when all the people I am talking about doing the work are women. -KW

  3. It is time the media start looking at the 3 candidates who want change, not the two who want to keep the donkey / elephant duopoly continuing.

    McCain wants war. Obama wants war. Libertarians, Socialists, Greens & Nader want peace.

  4. *** flashback: zogby poll last month ***

    `In the poll’s horserace question, Obama got a small bump out of the announcement, and now leads McCain, 46% to 44%, in a two-way contest, and leads 45% to 42% in a five-way contest including Libertarian candidate Bob Barr of Georgia, who won 4%, Green Party nominee Cynthia McKinney and liberal independent candidate Ralph Nader, both of whom won 1% support.`

  5. Look, stop voting for McCain, he will not lead the voters in the right direction;he is
    more neo conservative than a republican. He only care for himself and don’t give a
    damn about others. He is an elites, and involved in greed. His experiences only involve supporting Bush. He wants war and his anger problem will destroy our country. His old ass need to retire;anyone who select a dummy for VP need his head
    in thearpy. He is a liar and his VP is a liar.
