Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Republican presidential nominee John McCain, lagging in most national polls, compared himself today to legendary Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne and said he is closing the gap between himself and Democrat Barack Obama.

"I feel like Knute Rockne at halftime,'' McCain said on NBC's "Meet the Press'' program. "We are doing fine. You're going to be up very late on election night.''

McCain, 72, said some surveys, such as one conducted by Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby, show him only a few points behind. The election ultimately will be decided by voter turnout, he said.

McCain is campaigning in Iowa, where a Quad City Times-Lee Enterprises poll shows Obama with a 15 percentage point lead.

In a Rasmussen Reports national tracking poll, Obama, 47, leads McCain 52 percent to 44 percent.

Both McCain & Palin have been campaigning in some places that I'm quite surprised about. Their internal state polling must be quite different from what we're hearing in the MSM.

Yes, employing Knute Rockne and Calvin Coolidge references in your campaign will certainly resonate with America's younger voters! :rolleyes:

Yeah, you're right. He should've used Britney Spears and Hannah Montana references.
