Yes, I know its been posted in other forms. This is being posted because Drudge's front page SCREAMING RED headlines do much to shape the tone and mood of this election. That this is there in that form is news IMHO.

Palin and Joe the Plumber are infinitely more appealing than washed up terrorists and rotten acorns.

And we still have over 2 weeks. McCain can flip it to +2 for McCain. If he can, he’ll win handily.

Now if it can only remain in “breaking news” to buck up some freepers who have been a little down lately. Please please please leave it there mods! If Drudge just now listed it as his breaking news story with the big red letters, so should FR.

This is the "traditional polling method of LVs" that Gallup is showing now?

And of course it's close.

Many Americans are for increased taxes as long as it’s someone else who’s paying the higher taxes. Almost all Americans are against paying higher taxes themselves. Joe the Plumber is an every-man and people can relate to him. If we’re hearing about Joe the Plumber in a week, Obama loses.

Yes, but those numbers were buried. Drudge has the power to push the McCain “comeback” theme for the weekend ahead of us.

The last drops in the DOW occurred when Obama’s polling lead expanded. The last couple rises in the DOW match McCain pulling close in the polls. Coincidence?

Do not give ultimate power to the pollsters.
They may never flip positive for McCain.
But McCain WILL win anyways..

No, the "America is racist" meme will be a thousand times louder. Expect riots.

Where McCain blew it last night IMO (I was watching my Dodgers get killed, off and on during the debate, maybe I missed it) Is planting the seed that The Democrats were running the economy the last two year with control of congress.

Talking point

1. What caused the Financial collapse...Fannie Mae and RATS
2. Why the high energy costs, RATS blocking drilling, Refinery's, Coal, Nuclear He needs to spend $ with commericals to drive it home, it isn't over.

Yes, I mentioned in my first response the poll was posted earlier. The news is that Matt has gone flaming red with it as breaking. THAT is big. His site sets the narrative. The post 4 hours ago has been pushed down the list and is not even in the top news story boxes on the right anymore.

I hope it is the start of a continuing trend.

Recently, every time it looks like McCain is making a move, the next round of polls show Obambi coasting back into a comfortable lead.

Lets hope Americans are finally waking up and are not ready to put an inexperienced Socialist into office in these very troubling times.

We need to win big. It will be hell if we win by a small margin.

This is an angry mob that supports Barack Obama.

A big win my McCain is entirely possible.
