“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Zogby Poll Data Sheds Some Light

Some very interesting data from Zogby:
  • The latest nationwide survey, conducted 8/29-30, shows McCain/Palin at 47%, compared to 45% support for Obama/Biden. A statistical tie.
  • Overall, 52% said the selection of Palin as McCain's Vice Presidential nominee helps the ticket, (Blogger Note: Zogby mentioned a week early that 43% of those polled thought Biden was a good pick, so Palin scored higher.)
  • "A very important demographic in this election is going to be the politically independent woman, 15% of whom in our latest survey are undecided." (Blogger Note: This is why the smear campaign against Sarah Palin is going to backfire on the Democrats.)
  • The survey shows that 22% of Hillary Clinton supporters in the primary and caucus earlier this year are now supporting John McCain.
  • "This contest is likely to be very close until the weekend before the election - then the dam may break and support may flood one way or the other."
