MCCAIN GAINS IN ALL THREE TRACKING POLLS

Zogby, Rasmussen and Gallup all report McCain closing to 5 points back. Zogby had him 12 back, Rasmussen 8 and Gallup 6 in their previous polling. McCain's use of the Joe the Plumber and the tax issue in his ads is working! Unilaterally, John McCain agreed to disarm himself by refusing to use perhaps his most potent weapon in exposing Barack Obama: the Democrats' relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

It takes time for gains from national polling to trickle down to the states, and with a week to go now there just isn't enough of it for John McCain.

I will bet anyone that more a higher percentage of White voters will vote for Obama than Black voters for McCain. Who is more racist? The Blacks who will vote 95% for Obama or the whites who have among them about 35%-40% who are willing to not vote for the white guy?
