Thread: Obama pulling back into lead

The economy has been a stake through McCain's heart.
On the strength of an abundance of state and national polling, Barack Obama has retaken the lead in our Electoral College projection. Our model now forecasts him to win the election 61.2 percent of the time; it also gives him a slight, half-point advantage in the popular vote. Yesterday, Obama was projected to win the Electoral College just 45 percent of the time, so this is a rather dramatic move upward.
The real tale will come at 2 PM ET when Gallup releases its daily tracking poll, if Obama builds on his already legit margin there its sending a pretty obvious message. What genuinely shocks me is how quickly Obama is transitioning a national lead into victories in state polling (IN is now up for grabs), it might be that Obama has better ground people or Palin's eroding favorability numbers are being slammed up against the wall.

You know McCain's little run for a week or so there is a good thing, because most of you can't say polls are worthless anymore.

Gallup is already out 49-44
I am not worried - Obama looks horrible on the economy.

And voters perception of McCain is George Bush III, and since many people think George Bush II got us into this mess I doubt the rest of the country shares your views. What you, throughout your many years of laying around doing nothing, have failed to realize is it doesn't matter who is right and wrong... its how many people you can convince.

Catholics and Jews are leaving obama like crazy. All bets are off.This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
09-19-2008, 01:18 PMAs Barack Obama and John McCain battle for the Hispanic vote, a leading Latino backer of Hillary Clinton is crossing party lines to support the Republican presidential nominee.
In an interview Thursday, Miguel D. Lausell, a Puerto Rican businessman and longtime Democratic activist and fund-raiser, came out for Sen. McCain. While he said he doesn't agree with all the policy positions of the Republican candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin, Mr. Lausell added: "I find McCain to be a sound person and a man with a track record. I know where he is coming from." Mr. Lausell had been a major backer of Bill Clinton and served as a senior political adviser to Sen. Clinton's unsuccessful bid this year for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Mr. Lausell said he feels Sen. Obama "doesn't really regard the Hispanic community as important."
