Someone posted a link to the Rassmussen internals yesterday. In looking at those McCain is doing badly with Hispanics and white women in their mid-30's to mid-40's. Those are blocks he really needs to make an impact with this week.

I would think that the J. Wright videos would gain traction with Hispanics as it calls into question o's patriotism. I would even run the ads in Spanish (except for the voice of J.Wright).

For the white women he needs to pound home how o's health care plan would wind up impacting their kids by comparing it to the failed UK/Canada models. In the ads, offer up some real world examples (such as waiting lists for services that are months long).

Another out of the box approach that I thought about while in church today as the pastor was giving a spread the wealth sermon (yes perhaps I should change churches), was that I do agree with the Biblical philosophy, I strongly disagree with the implementation.    While people in front of me were nodding their approval I couldn't help but think they were linking his sermon to o. Instead my thoughts went to getting the government out of my pocket, same as Joe the Plumber (JTP),so that I cand decide where the spread the wealth -- keeping it local.

The point of this being move the JTP emphasis to keeping your money to spread as you see fit, not where o sess fit. And hammer that point.    Spread it to the places where you see fit, not where o sees fit.    I really believe that would have traction with some of the demographics that McCain is trailing.

I'm sorry, and I don't want to sound discouraging, but the moment for that initiative passed about six months ago. That is an education campaign, the kind of thing the 527's should have been doing retroactively to last spring, if they had any money (and GOP money has been largely absent this cycle, already sent ahead to tax-haven banks before the Wrath of the Dems arrives).
