    Those are all pretty close... wouldn't say he's "killing him" in any of those, except Virginia.

    And, living in Virginia, I have a hunch it's really much closer than that. Real Clear Politics has it well within the margin of error.

    That said, Obama has the momentum right now and it wouldn't surprise me that he's gaining ground in swing states. That may be a permanent trend or it may be temporary... who knows.

    Not that the OP cares about any of this... he's more of a "throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks" kinda guy.

    I agree and it really should be no surprise. After the debate Obama went back to the campaign trail and McCain went back to Washington. I think we will start to see some narrowing once McCain gets back into full gear on the campaign trail

    Yes he went to Washington, as in making calls from his Washington office, something he could have done on the campaign trail. It was a political stunt, everyone knows that except for you it seems.

    And its not like McCain is an effective campaigner without Palin. By himself he draws the smallest crowds, so I doubt him now being in "full gear" will make much of a difference one way or the other.

    Um what are you looking at? He is up 8 in Florida and 12 in Minnesota. Those are pretty big leads for what are considered swing states.

    Every liberal is playing it that way including you. McCain did what he felt he needed to do, if cost him in the end then so be it but at least he does what he thinks is right. Hey if you think Obama is a shoe in great stay at home and don't vote but you have some screws lose if you think this is not going to be close elections.

    I don't buy the polls at all anymore. Too many factors that I think pollsters aren't keeping up with.

    Reminds me when W's numbers started dropping and some people believed he would rebound back into the upper 40's. That never happened.

    So it's okay to screw up colossally so long as you mean well?

    I personally think it was a political stunt that misfired horribly, just like the selection of Sarah Palin.

    HA! That is the biggest load of B.S. if I have ever seen one.

    Then why did he not attend the debate like he said he was going to do? I mean if he thought it was the right thing to do why did he flip flop? Because it was a political stunt. Don't be so naive.

    You mean these numbers? Right...

    These polls are scientifically done and have proven, despite what many laymen think, to be pretty accurate.

    And I got to tell you I'm glad he did.

    Because now even more blame is coming down on him for not closing the deal and you can deny that till you're blue in the face.
