Once the storm passes, several states will require federal aid and assistance--perhaps a great deal of assistance. Unfortunately, the storm will also likely cause some human fatalities; storms of this nature usually do. The nation will be watching to see how FEMA and other government agencies respond to the tragedies. If the public feels that the federal government doesn't respond forcefully enough; they may blame President Barack Obama. The president's Katrina moment will be enough to sink his election chances. By contrast, if the populace is happy with the government response, Obama might gain some votes.
What do you all think about this one? Will the Frankenstorm influence the election. Is it the October surprise that many pundits have been waiting for?
