wow. That’s all I can say. They have completely undercut the basis for Obama, and also Obama’s case against McCain. First, Obama’s change isn’t anything new...just big government liberalism. McCain/Palin isn’t Bush III.

We had better be ready for the Acorn types that register dead people and vote 2,3,4,5....times. The left is already making contingency plans we had better be ready. If anybody thought that 2000 was bad wait till inner city blacks turn angry and start burning and murdering because the leftist media tells them they have been cheated.

We need to be ready for the outcome and plan for them to decieve, lie and cheat.

Just... damn.

I'm sure the Obama's internal polling told him the same thing. This is why he's been so off his game and talking about his "Muslim faith".

Willie Brown saw this coming a few days ago. He's the one liberal Democrat who was honest.

"You could flip a coin and be about as predictive," he (Sabato) says. "It is really surprising how quickly convention memories fade."

True enough, but the Palinmania which lit up St. Paul will carry the enthusiasm forward in a very atypical post-convention environment.

And they buried the most important news of a 10 point lead in likely voters down in the 7th paragraph. Typical USA Today.

Most people are here because they are politically active and are definitely going to vote. A lot of us even donate and volunteer.
We KNOW it’s not over, and we need to work hard. This is all about the battleground states.

In the new poll, taken Friday through Sunday, McCain leads Obama by 54%-44% among those seen as most likely to vote. The survey of 1,022 adults, including 959 registered voters, has a margin of error of +/— 3 points for both samples.

Wow—is this the first time McCain has gone over 50%?

A ten-point difference?

Wow. Good convention bounce.

I don't trust Obama's people, if the polls keep showing a huge lead for McCain/Palin, we all need to pray for their safety!

Seems the left radicals will do anything to win this time! Scary!

We now see why Obama and his fellow travellers in the press have been so rattled—their internal polling has been telling them this.

this explains a lot ... the Dems seem to have been in meltdown mode for the past few weeks. I noted last week that their internal polling has them in a panic.

Now I can see why.

It would seem, certainly at this point, that the Lefties have a case of Premature Obamaculation.

This bounce is going to be huge.

Going to be ugly. Race riots if McCain wins. And I won't rule out riots similar to those that occur when a major league sports team wins the world championship if BO wins.

Always weary of polls but if its 54 to 44 among likely voters that is devastating! I expect if the internals from the obama campaign back this up, than the media will drop the gloves and I expect There will be Headlines spouting Sarah Palins hatred for fluffy bunnies.

Yes, it is time for Joe to get that medical check up, where he discovers he's developed some unforseen medical condition that will require him to drop out.

Maybe this is why Biden looked so bad on Meet the Press.

You’re right. The debates are important. I remember that Kerry schooled Bush in one of those debates and it made a difference.

On the one hand, this poll seems strange because there is such a big gap between RV and LV (50-46 RV and 54-44 LV), and as we know, convention bounces usually fade.

On the other hand, this was a Fri-Sun poll, so it may have had a slight Dem weekend tint on that basis. Also, Obama’s bump did not max out till the Tuesday after his convention, so McCain’s bump may not even have maxed out yet.

Interesting times. Let’s carefully watch the Obama camp for signs of panic this week.

As much as I wish it were true, I don’t.

1. MSM wants to say Obama is closing (so watch the lead to close)
2. The Only Poll that matters is Tuesday in November
3. My gut just tells me its too good to be true. The internals would be interesting.
