Election 2008: The People's Choice?

Suspicious voting strategy, according to

NEW YORK, April 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- There is evidence to suggest that during this election year, the Republicans are backing Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee in order to seal the Presidential spot for John McCain.

Tegan Miller: "It appears that the Republicans are creating a strong influence through a well-coordinated marketing media and financial support program. They are targeting these efforts to the Republican Right and Christian youth movements within the Republican Party. They are artfully using the Conservative press, media and youthful leadership to influence voters to cast their vote to elect Barack Obama in open Democratic primaries."

Christian Karnes: "Obama has had only 3 victories out of the 27 contests that have come from closed primaries. The other 24 victories were either open elections or caucuses. Obama may have won these states due to crossover voting from Republicans which would explain the victories of Clinton in closed primary states such as Pennsylvania, Arizona, and New Mexico."

Tegan Miller: "Millions of Republican voters have a chance to cast their vote for their choice of a Democratic contender with McCain as the presumptive Republican nominee."

Christian Karnes: "Why would the Republicans want Obama over Clinton? In big states that are almost always Democratic, Clinton has been consistently successful. In Pennsylvania where Obama outspent Clinton 3 to 1, Clinton still won a majority of the vote by a substantial and significant margin. According to the Pew Research Center, 1 in 5 white Democrats said that they will vote for McCain over Obama which is double the percentage who say they would switch sides in a Clinton-McCain matchup."

Morgan Kelly: "Is Barack Obama leading due to his platform, or is it a ploy by Republican support groups who will abandon him in the November election?"
