Makes sense to me
Gosh....I am SHOCKED I tell you!
I thought the Messiah could change polls with a wave of his hand????
by tuesday he will be over 50%
I’m waiting for Mondays numbers, they sound great
Upstate NY online poll
With both conventions now over, who are you voting for?
Watched a Fox analysis this morning and the analysis was that the polls are all moving in the McCain/Palin way.
Neutral analysts will look back and see Obama’s failure to even pretend to vet and consider Hillary for veep to be the key tactical error by Obama. Combine that with McCain’s key tactical success in picking Palin, and you have an amazing turnaround in the course of just two weeks, beyond the normal bounce/counter-bounce between the two conventions.
Tomorrow’s poll will be even better. It will be the first poll in which all people were polled after the GOP convention.
I imagine we’ll break 50% by mid-week.
Gee, I wonder if this will be posted as a graphic on all the news broadcasts like it was when Obamanation was up by 8?
Live by polls, die by polls, damn polls.
Does not matter what the polls say IMHO.
We should consider this election as our side being 10 points down and fight as hard as we possibly can.
They do a three day tracking poll. So this poll includes saturday, friday and thursday polling which of course 1/3 of this poll does not include reaction to MaCain speech. Plus there is a theory which says that weekend polls favors dems since republicans are richer and have bigger families and they are out doing errands and maybe traveling so they are not home to be polled. Tomorrow’s and tuesday polls will be a better indication of the effects of any Palin Bounce (hey that should the name of a new dance).
LOL - Maybe Obama should send Hillary to her home state instead of Florida.

The hard work starts now. But McCain is going into the home stretch with the polling lead and a unified and motivated base. NO ONE would have predicted that two weeks ago.
Oh wow, I don’t see a distress signal. Does Hillary even know what a joke she is?
Should we see this starting to move in the state polls too??
darn it... the styrofoam Greek Temple trick just didn’t do it. lmao
I could not agree more. Good point and one to live by for the next couple of months.
Holy crap! Upstate NY???
Good bounce. Rasmussen has it tied, Zogby has McCain up 4, and we all know the Zog trends Democrat.
Funny, here is Zogby’s statement on his site: “In the 2004 presidential election, not only was Zogby’s telephone polling right on the money”
Uh, not...he picked Kerry to win. It was Gallup that was right on the money, Bush 51 to Kerry 48.
The FNC is saying that pollsters are hinting that McCain will see a “significant” bounce in the polls on Monday/Tuesday.
Fox just said they heard there will be a very significant bounce in the polls in the next couple of days.
Wow, he might be up 6-8 come monday. This is very nice to see.
“...above my pay grade...” + infanticide vote, cover-up
We must be watching the same thing. Great news!
State polls lag about 2 weeks behind nationals.
Watch for those polls in key states (PA, MI, OH, WI, CO, NV, NM).
I agree, but they are fun to watch and are still important to gauge where work needs to be done.
The best news I’ve seen this morning it that Milwaukee, of all places, is clamping down on voter fraud and have already charged 49 people there in the ongoing investigation. I think more states are finally waking up to the fact that our elections are starting to look like those held in third world banana republics. I appreciate the fact that they want EVERYONE to vote. My problem is, how ‘bout letting EVERYONE vote ONLY ONE TIME per election and only allow people who can fog a mirror to vote.
I really want to see some current state polling on WI, MN, MI, PA, CO, NV, NM, NH etc.
you guys should secede from downstate...you could be the new Vermont like Vermont was till all the hippies and lesbicans took over 30 years ago
well I’m trying not to gage my emotions on the polls, but I am glad to hear this.
He also has a great communications strategy guy in Schmidt. No way Hillary’s crew would have allowed their candidate to get hammered like the way Obama has been.
Upstate NY can be mighty conservative. People there actually work for what they have.
Poll is meaningless, though. We haven’t even had the debates yet.
click on the state in this map:
Time again for Krissy Matthews and Keith OlberPunk, CNN, et al, and the rest to increase the noise of their shrillness.
When I see Ohio turn red, THEN I’ll start to believe.
It’s electoral votes- that’s what we need to focus on unless McCain really shoots ahead in the polls significantly.
If this is true--the left is going to go into DEFCON mode.
Property destruction, breakdowns in their personal lives, acting out like even bigger crazies.
By all accounts, it should be a great week.
Sorry but most of those state polls are mid August. That is why I said current.
Heck that was back before Obama was calling himself a muslim on the Sunday morning shows. :-)
The usual evil Chicago Machine politics that served Obama well in the past is failing miserably nationwide.
Obama illegaly used sealed divorce records of his opponents in both his Illinois State Senate and US Senate runs.
