According to a new Gallup poll, Barack Obama has been managing to hold onto a slim lead in the swing states, which many people believe to be a good thing. However, if this one outlying poll conducted by a conservative strategist is to be believed that the President might maybe possibly lose his home state of Illinois.
Which would be utter madness!!! Just see how the Daily Caller explains it…
President Barack Obama could lose his home state of Illinois in November, a new poll shows.
A poll conducted by Illinois-based pollster and political strategist Michael McKeon found Obama leading Republican Mitt Romney by 49 percent to 37 percent in Cook County, the home of Chicago. That puts him ahead by a far thinner margin than expected in a county he should be winning handsomely.
Cook is the most Democratic leaning county in the state. It is also the most populous. Those numbers do not bode well for the president.
Also, once you factor in all of the bigfoots and werewolves who will be taking red eye UFOs in from the Bermuda Triangle, this could really shake up the race!
