Poll Positions by American Elephant

Many Republicans are fretting over recent polling (RCP average Obama +5.9) in the presidential election, fearing, as some pundit on CNN declared, “the election is over”. Liberals, on the other hand, are quite cocky.

But let’s hold on for just a second and put things in persepective. A quick google search indicates things may not be as dire as Republicans fear and liberals, and the media (redundant, I know) would have us believe. Let’s take a little trip back in the time machine:

Newsweek      Sept 30-Oct 2, 2004:      Kerry 49   Bush 46

AP/Ipsos            October 4-6, 2004:      Kerry 50   Bush 46

Reuters/Zogby   October 6-8, 2004:      Kerry 46   Bush 45


Gallup            Sept 30-Oct 2, 2000:      Gore: 47   Bush 39

And there is more reason for optimism. As HotAir reports, the McCain campaign is saying it’s going to take the gloves off and start calling attention to Obama’s nefarious associations with criminals and radicals since the MSM won’t.

If they also start pointing the finger at Obama and Democrats for the financial crisis, and drawing attention to the big bucks and advisers Obama got from Fannie Mae, then things might actually turn around.

Looks as if Sarah Palin has already taken the gloves off and put on the pointed high heels and dug into Obama about William Ayers! McCain also had a talk with ABC about William Ayers and Obama! Good post and you are correct in your judement!

I dont think going after Obama on Ayers, Wright, Rezko will be enough. McCain has to go after Obama and the Democrats on Fannie and Freddie and he has to go after them hard.
