It’s all find & well, but dig a little deeper into the poll and you’ll notice that there’s a big panic factor for Obama. Here’s the basics of the poll:
Now, if you examine the polling data and when it was taken, it becomes clear that some of the polls are pre-McCain bounce.
Wisconsin’s poll (a Democratic leaner) was taken August 7th. Michigan (Democratic leaner), August 8th. Oregon- August 11. Nevada (Toss up) August 13th. Minnesota, a “Likely Democrat” win, was taken August 14th and shows McCain behind by 4%.
You can smell the desperation. The Democrats know they’re in trouble, and Obama’s shift from beltway outsider to mainstream Democrat has done more to hurt him than to help. And so far, there’s nothing out there to sway the minds of voters away from McCain/Palin.
