Great news coming on the heels of polls showing McCain with a big lead in NC and a lead in FL. Obama has spent a significant amount of money targeting these states compared to almost no money spent by McCain, yet McCain still has significant leads.

No wonder Obama is having trouble convincing people to give him more money.

Lovely, Obama has spent millions in Montana on the mistaken impression he could win there.

I never thought Montana was an actual battleground state, but it is nice to get some confirmation on that.

I would sure hope so. If Montana is not in the bad, McCain is in trouble.

Look for the Obama campaign to find ONE state with polls showing them in the lead or real close, a state where McCain needs to be win or is expected to win. They will drive the media to that state. I'm thinking it will be either Colorado or Florida.

I guess the good people of Montana didn't believe their own governor when he declared Obama wouldn't take their guns. Anyone with half a brain realizes that Brady Law 2 will be much more draconian and permanent with Obama in the White House and his party in control of Congress.

Well, what do expect from a state full of bitter gun clingers living in insignificant towns of under 10,000 people. It’s not like they are REAL americans, right?

I was checking RCP earlier. and most of the polls in the south are going the same way.

Obama has all but gave up on every Southern state with the exception of Virginia.

No Democrat has ever won the white house without carrying 4 or 5 southern states.

Didn’t Obama have a highly publicized stop there on his way to Denver? And Biden was there last week. So much for all that. Look for Obama to pull out his dozens of paid staffers there there and hunker down in NM or CO.

I recall a host of one of the fox shows mentioning that O had spent large amounts of money campaigning there. Not sure of where I could even find the stats on that.

that’s odd this Dim thought they had it wrapped up this AM, from the Washington Times, movin’ to Montana soon gonna be a dental floss tycoon.

“From what I’ve heard from people here, there is a general impression she was well-received because of her speech, but looking at the bigger picture, I don’t think she will have any effect on the race in Montana,” said state Democratic Chairman Dennis McDonald.

“The reason is that Senator Obama has been here five times since this spring and summer, the last time nine days ago, and has opened up 16 campaign offices statewide. McCain has not been here in eight years and has no presence in the state,” he said.

You would think Montana would fall along the same lines as Wyoming or Idaho. An relatively easy Republican win. However, it seems it's becoming more like Colorado.

The bigger the better. We need to absolutely CRUSH Obama with a victory that is clearly inspired by conservative momentum.

No letting up.

Heck, we had hillary waving Bibles and offering to compromise on abortion after the 2004 election, until Bush and the incumbent Republicans started kicking it all away.

Time to reverse course and get this country back on track.

I live in Ohio and haven’t heard anything about here. I’m happy to hear the latest on NC. I’m not much for polls because I think people fib.

I haven’t seen very many Obama OR McCain signs. Saw a car with a McCain bumper sticker at school today and thought that person was brave since liberals tend to be pretty vicious.

Well, if we could now just get Colorado's poll to respond like Montana's appear to be, Obama would be in serious trouble in this election.

The McCain List.

With new polls here and in North Carolina, the last of the solid GOP states have fallen away from Obama.

Montana
McCain 53%
Obama 42%

There was an article today from the Guardian, I believe, saying the Obamessiah was giving finally giving up on ND. Can’t remember if MT was specifically mentioned, but this comes as no surprise.

I'm not quite getting that warm fuzzy yet. There's a good part of me that fears a tactical election on Obama's part where he squeaks out a narrow Electoral victory.

But one thing seems certain, barring a major hit on the GOP ticket, McCain is not going to lose in a landslide. I am at least positive enough to think that.

Change to read: “McCain/Palin Lead by 11 in Massachusetts” or better yet “.....by 11 in CALIFORNIA”. It’s not illegal to dream, is it?

VERY good to see the once endangered MT is off the table now.

I still want to see some NH polls!!!!!!!!! Also, another MI and perhaps larger PA sample.

 That's the problem.  Looks like Barry should have stayed home.

Not really. Here’s why:

“The reason is that Senator Obama has been here five times since this spring and summer, the last time nine days ago, and has opened up 16 campaign offices statewide.”

Also, Obama has spent over a million on ads. McCain hasn’t been in the state once.

McCain/Palin are coming to Virginia (Northern Virginia) tomorrow. The venue was a local high school but response was so strong, they had to move it outdoor to the football field to accommodate all who say they’re going.

We’re back. Obama has made considerable investments of time, money, staff, and advertisements in MT. But we are in the driver’s seat now.

Barry claimed that he had more experience than Palin because he was running his campaign.

So, based on the way his candidacy is floundering in a sea of failure, we are starting to get the perfect answer as to why he should not be the President of the United States.

He is proving that he is an inept and incompetent leader, even the former Enron management team thinks he’s horrible.
