Oregon voters down on gas tax holiday


(CNN) - Two of three voters in Oregon's Democratic primary disagree with Hillary Clinton's call for a moratorium in the federal gasoline tax. Twenty-six percent of the voters in CNN's Oregon voter poll, conducted by phone, think suspending the gas tax is a good idea; they went for Clinton over Barack Obama 64 to 34 percent. Sixty-three percent think it's a bad idea to suspend the gas tax - those voters supported Obama 67 to 31 percent.

    You said add a comment but when one does so you refuse to post it. Why? Is it because it is not in Obama's favor. He is not qualified for this job and because you are so bias and hatefull I will soon take my comments to a neutral news station. I thought you were unbias, obviously, you are as corrupt and bought out as the rest of them.
    Hillary 2008!!!!

    Oregon is educated with common sense! The no child left behind was design to keep people dumb to vote for the Republicans and now Hillary (southern strategy). What a joke.

    Thank God for these Oregon voters, 90% white voters, choosing Obama before HRC! Thank God for education! America is ready for a president that has no racial constituency than the whole of America

    It looks like the DEMS really know HOW to lose. It could be that it is the party with the most uneducated and vulnerable folks in this world.

    Let the Dems give Hillary to the Republicans. Indeed, the Republicans are really eager for a "fighter" not a uniter. The Republicans will have no problem opening up their "war chest" against the Clintons. They will start where the Clintons left off– the White House items that were stolen and end up with "Bosnia fire." Yeah, let Hillary be the nominee for our women in this nation; blacks should work harder, they are not yet ready!

    And think of what America could look like AFTER Obama is president; AFTER he has helped millions more complete higher ed: an educated populace who can think for themselves, can realize that racism and sexism bring EVERYONE down, and can know that optimism and charity is inspired by leadership and role models. I have great hope for this country...and Obama has ignited it! How sweet it would be if everyone could unite behind this guy, help him sweep the general election against McCain (similar to how Reagan did it versus Mondale in 1984), and hold him accountable for all his words once in office. Now wouldn't that send a resounding message about the Iraq war and "politics as usual"?! Fire it up, y'all!

    Senator Clinton is right, suspend all federal tax on gas.
    Than we can have a toll on every federal highway every 5 miles so we can up keep the roads, and create good paying jobs for woman as toll collector's so there husbands can sit home and drink shots and chug beer as Hillary does, and the men at home will be ready on day one to change the baby's diaper.

    Interesting enough, Sal, SD, is that Hillary opposes 'No Child Left Behind', but highly educated Obamabots knew that.
