THE LATEST RIGHTWING FANTASY...:
Obama's lead slips to 3 points (Andrew Quinn, 10/19/08, Reuters)
Pollster John Zogby said the numbers were good news for McCain, and probably reflected a bump following his appearance in the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday.
"For the first time in the polling McCain is up above 45 percent. There is no question something has happened," Zogby said.
He said the Arizona senator appeared to have solidified his support with the Republican base -- where 9 out of 10 voters now back him -- and was also gaining ground among the independents who may play a decisive role in the November 4 election.
Obama's lead among independent voters dropped to 8 points on Sunday from 16 points a day earlier.
...is that the media is trying to portray the race as over n order to dispirit the GOP. The reality is that it can only serve to concentrate voter attention on the prospect of a Democrat President, which serves Maverick well. Posted by Orrin Judd at October 19, 2008 9:39 AM
