Evening Buzz: Voters Wanted, Every Voter

In these final days of the presidential election there's a ground war attack underway in several key states for every single voter. Foot soldiers for both McCain and Obama are going block by block to get out the vote.

Tonight on 360, CNN's John King shows us how the battle is playing out in North Carolina. Early voting is underway in the state that last voted for a democrat for president more than 30 years ago. Will Obama's largely volunteer army in the state change that this year?

John McCain hopes that's not the case. He kicked off what he calls the "Joe the plumber" bus tour in Florida today (No, "Joe the Plumber" isn't along for the ride). McCain's goal: sell his economic plan to voters. Is it working? We'll let you be the judge.

And, we're unveiling another culprit of the collapse. You may not like our decision.  This one may hit too close for comfort.

All that and more tonight on 360.
Hope you can join us at 10pm ET.

    Could it be that "We the People" are the #1 Culprit of the Collapse? Can't wait to see. After all, it wouldn't be too surprising given the "instant gratification credit culture" that's thrived since the '80s.

    Please tell the truth, and name Obama, as one of the culprits

    I'm sick of Joe the Plumber! Let's explain what "spreading the wealth" really means. Middle America will not get their taxes raised – more money in their pockets. The wealthy will get their taxes raised, I seriously doubt they'll even notice. Taxes pay for government programs – Middle America will not be getting a check from Joe the Plumber or Cindy McCain the beer wench! Think about it – who's taxes will be raised – Good reason for John to be spreading fear about Obama and his tax plan. By the way, why hasn't anyone mentioned that "Foreclosure Phil" Gram is a co-chair on McCain's campaign and advises him on economic matters?

    Well as far as the culprit goes you're probably hinting on the american public, those ones that don't know how to manage their money.

    I'd prefer to see Chris Dodd. However, since he's a democratic senator there's no chance of that ever happening; so you'll probably say GWB.

    To all you voters, as a citizen and a Soldier in the Army it makes me proud to see how many of my fellow citizens are voting this election. During your voting experiences around this country there may be some long lines, some broken machines and some grumpy people but remember one thing everyone who is voting is doing their part to elect our President. I am very proud of you America! Get out and Vote! To all of you out there voting -Thank you!

    I just saw reported on Campbell Brown's show that NC early voters are 2-1 Republican. That is not true. It is 2-1 Democrats 56-27% to be exact. Went through Daily Kos to the NC SOS office.

    It would be nice if someone would correct that.

    You may not like our decision. This one may hit too close for comfort.

    Are you going to include home buyers? If you are, I'm not offended. I'm tired of people using ignorance as an excuse. Common sense should tell you what you can and cannot afford. Don't forget to leave spaces for Chris Dodd and Barney Frank....the list won't be complete until these two guys are included.
