Rupert Murdoch, new US citizen, and trumpeter of Fox News, declared that Barack Obama would easily defeat John McCain this November. Stating since that the population has become less and less pleased with the Republican administration, and that since John McCain has been too long in the Senate to any longer stand for anything, he predicted that Obama would become the next president. Murdoch even hinted that he might vote for Obama. No truth to the rumor that Al Franken is expected to announce his support for McCain.
