WE CAN BELIEVE A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT THIS RACE...:

AP presidential poll: All even in the homestretch (LIZ SIDOTI, 10/22/08, Associated Press)

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.


...but not that Barack Obama will outperform Clinton/Gore/Kerry among core constituencies of the GOP.
