An Intriguing Look At Recent History

I wanted to throw something out for you to ponder in the context of the American economy. First, take a look at this diagram of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from the beginning of the year through yesterday:

Next, look at the RCP Average of polls comparing Obama and McCain throughout the final months of the election:

Is anyone else noticing the same trend I see? The higher Obama’s poll ratings against McCain, the more the DJIA drops.


Of course, there are many factors which weigh in with regard to the stock market. But, given his proposals and policies — which have been proven through history to kill a thriving economy — and given that every indicator is that Obama will do his damnedest to push those proposals through, any intelligent person can’t help but wonder about the connections here.

I report, you decide.

There’s my two cents.


I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
