West Virginia will not turn blue. It's pretty stunning that one poll showed Obama +8 there if I remember correctly. Then again, it was ARG...

Since there seems to be no lack for $, I do hope Obama keeps pressing WV. I just don't accept that McCain has that kind of lead there. That would effectively seem to put the margin at GREATER for McCain right about where it was before the nationwide Obama surge that began in mid-September (where ARG, e.g., had only a + 4 for McCain).

That, my friends, doesn't make sense. Granted, the last three polls in this state (PPP, M-D & Ras) have it as McCain +8, +6 and +8, respectively. Of course, Ras's is identical to its own 9/22-24 WV poll. But I haven't forgotten the ARG poll in early Oct. that had Obama +8, nor Insider Advantage's 10/13 poll that had McCain only +2. To believe the recent polls would seem to almost mean that WV has been going down for O while the country overall has been going up for him. Maybe this state is particularly difficult to poll. We'll see I guess.
