Obama just cannot break 50% and McCain seems to be steadily gaining ground.

Like I've always said, national polls are almost completely useless until after the conventions.

i agree but what they are good for is trending. and that in and of itself has validity.

when the trends favor obama the polls seem to be construed by readers particularly on this site as having traction and appeal and predictive flow.

when they favor a mccain up tick, they tend to be considered either anomalous or non instructive.

but numbers are numbers. and something is no doubt afoot. will the trend be a micro one or is it something that will chart as a grander curve and sweep through to the GE?

i have no idea, but it certainly belies the berlin bounce, the obama economic summit and suggests that he is running out of rabbits to pull forth from his hat.

ummm, yeah boskop. ooooo-kaaay.

Have you heard of a term called "noise"?

McCain's chances were slim to none back in May. And slim just left town.

Poor gramps, is he even going to make it to November? He and his campaign are becoming more and more unhinged every day. Today they rolled out a britney and paris ad with obama. Are they serious? Pretty sad stuff from the crypt keeper......


Just wait til the first debate between the two. It is going to be embarassing. McCain is going to look like a bonafide corpse next to the electric Obama. The convention should give Obama a pretty big bounce too, pulling in the hillary holdouts.

Maybe mccain can start doing a stand-up act with his ever popular rape and wife-beating jokes.....yeah, that should work.
