#1 AP presidential poll: All even in the homestretch10-22-2008, 04:26 PM
WASHINGTON (AP) - The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.
The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain's "Joe the plumber" analogy struck a chord.
Three weeks ago, an AP-GfK survey found that Obama had surged to a seven-point lead over McCain, lifted by voters who thought the Democrat was better suited to lead the nation through its sudden economic crisis.
The contest is still volatile, and the split among voters is apparent less than two weeks before Election Day.
There's a poll for every opinion at the moment. :D

Rendell ‘Nervous’ McCain Could Win Pennsylvania
October 22, 2008 9:37 AM
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell wants Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., back in the Keystone State. He's worried Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., could still pull off a victory there.
"I don’t want to be selfish,” Rendell told CNN. “But I’m still a little nervous, so I have asked Obama to come back. We understand he’s got demands from 20 different states, but we’d like to see him here.”
Rendell sent the leadership of the Obama campaign two e-mails asking them to get Obama to Western Pennsylvania, along with asking for Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., to come back into the state, where she trounced Obama in the primaries, ABC News Political Director David Chalian reports.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Rendell wants Obama to come back because it helps all the Democrats in the state when he's around.

Even the fox news poll has Obama up by 9. This is not a a good thing if you're a McCain fan.
