I was asking Gale about what he was hearing about the election here in southern Indiana. He says he thinks Hostettler will win because the Democrats put up a weak candidate.
But....he also says most of the people he has talked to think Hostettler took money from oil companies and that the price of gas will go right back up after the election. It is all a conspiracy. The prices are only down to help them win and then watch out! BAck up they will go.
I think that is nonsense, after all Americans do not control the world price of oil...pity that...but he says it is firmly in people's minds. If those prices stay down will that change minds or are these kinds of views so firmly planted in the psyche of the public that there is no changing them?
