Sure if you want to cherrypick the one poll that seems to be the outlier...

Meanwhile...

Quote:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Barack Obama attracting 48% of the vote while John McCain earns 43%. When "leaners" are included, it’s Obama 51%, McCain 45%. This is the highest level of support enjoyed by Obama at any point in Election 2008.
And then there's Gallup...

Quote:
Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Aug. 30 through Sept. 1, finds Barack Obama leading the race for president with his highest share of support to date. Fully half of national registered voters now favor Obama for president, while 42% back John McCain.
And then this gem from Gallup - lookit dem PUMAs!

Quote:
Barack Obama leads John McCain 88% to 5% among self-described Democrats (37% of likely voters). McCain leads Obama 83% to 11% among self-described Republicans (34% of likely voters). And Obama leads McCain 45% to 43% among self-described independent voters (29% of likely voters).

Obama hitting 50% is big news.

we'll see what happens, but it's important to note that, right now, McCain should be surging. he held off his VP pick until the day after the opposing nominee gave his speech, something that has *never* been done before and it was meant to blunt the effect of what everyone assumed would be, and certainly was, a historical home run of a speech. and then the GOP convention was timed to be the week after the Dem convention, also never done before.

they've shifted the entire political process around blunting any Obama surge in the polls with the convention, and this is what happens?

one hurricane wasn't the GOPs fault, the other certainly was.

You know today it hit me that we haven't heard Ann Coulter's thoughts on Palin, I mean we all know how much she dislikes McCain...

Palin seems to be right up Ann's alley yet in conflict with some of her anti-feminists beliefs.

Poor Ann. What a quandary. Although, I must admit I feel blessed not to have heard her(?) insane ramblings in months. The voices in her(?) head must have laryngitis.

So you accept that Palin qualifies as a feminist?

I must admit to being pleasantly surprised.

The Obama campaign will be breathing a sigh of relief, but they really should have been in a low 50's position before now.

Well that's what the conservatives are calling her, a "feminist for life". With the exception of not having control over her reproductive organs in the case of rape or incest, I can see where you could call her a feminist.

there's never been a candidate who waited so long to announce his VP selection nor have the conventions ever been back-to-back like this, and the "expected" boost has been increasingly muted over the years due to the 24/7 news cycle.
