THOUGH WE RECALL HIM AS WITHOUT BLEMISH...:

Poll: Obama leads McCain by one point in battleground states (Mike Sunnucks, 10/31/08, Phoenix Business Journal)

A Halloween Day poll shows John McCain trailing Barack Obama by one point in the “toss-up” states that could decide Tuesday’s presidential election.

The George Washington University Battleground Poll gives Obama and running mate Joe Biden 47 percent, with 46 percent for McCain and running mate Sarah Palin in those states and 4 percent undecided. [...]

The Obama campaign also announced Friday it would run home-stretch advertisements in Arizona (McCain’s home state) and two other traditional “red states” — Georgia and North Dakota — in the last days of the campaign.


...Ronald Reagan rightly took some heat for heading to MN to try and win 50 states at the end of the 1984 campaign, rather than helping to win some congressional seats. But he had the race sewn up and could afford to mess around. Were the Unicorn Rider to biff it on Tuesday you can guarantee that folks will point at this overextension and ask why he didn't focus on the more winnable states.
