KipTin, that was the last poll of regitered voters, and that # itself hasn't changed. But the likely voter spread is 5 points. If new voter turnout is at least 60% or more, that's a huge edge to Obama.

What is Marist MOE? Are they credible pollsters?

KipTin:

Read very carefully, because I pasted the Marist poll directly from this Pollster website. It says LV (likely voters) and not registered voters. I was specifically discussing the +1 gain for Obama with a sampling error of +3.5%. This implies that Obama is holding even rather than making any significant gain.

You guys go after me for stating factual non-biased information, which makes NO SENSE.

TONIGHT'S DEBATE:

Palin needs to knock it out of the park like she did at the Convention tonight or McCain is likely finished.

If Palin is awesome, it's a whole new race. If she stinks up the joint and Biden shines, fogetaboudit.

I think I am going to open a page on eBay where I will sell only McCain's missed opportunities. I won't be running out of stock anytime soon.

Tonight's the whole game.

IndependentThinker... I doubt if you truly think that I or others work for the McCain campaign, but it is really evident that you like to harass posters who are not committed to Obama. Is it because your "critical-thinking" skills are not strong enough to come up with cogent and relevant remarks for these polls?

McCain is having serious trouble anyway you look at the polls this week. If Palin delivers a HUGE performance tonight, she may re-energize the social conservative base that has been coming out of the woodwork to support her. She will have to give more detailed answers, though, than she gave to Couric; talking in generalities will not cut it. But the ticket may have permanently lost the swing voters in the last couple weeks.

Judging on the pre-debate spin, I would guess that the McCain campaign is truly concerned about her performance tonight (why else directly question the moderator's political leanings and claim that "life isn't fair"?). I still think it's possible for her to give a decent performance as her expectations are SO LOW.

ONE GOOD THING ABOUT AN OBAMA VICTORY:

As a small business owner, I am sick and f*cking tired of the MSM 24/7 spinning that the economy is in collapse. Eventually, this becomes self-fulfilling prophecy.

I read an article on CNBC this morning claiming that we have been in recession since late 2007. I'm like, what the f*ck?! I am just sick of the lies.

At least if Obama wins, they will suddenly see everything in a much rosier light which will likely help the economy. I expect that within a week of Obama's election, the economy will recover fully and the "recession" will come to a miraculous end.

Pardon me, I have to go puke.

____________________

jamesia:

If Palin does well tonight, I think McCain has a chance at survival. Her views started turning off independents even before her bad interviews. If she does well, she'll probably reinvigorate people that will vote for McCain anyway ... something that's probably needed for morale at this point. The only way for McCain to regain the lead is if Obama does something dumb - like screw up a debate. Even then, Obama is at a +6% lead nationally right now, and that's a steep hill to climb.

Are you referring to when Bill Clinton took office? The economy was already in recovery when he took over. It prospered during his term due to the dot.com bubble. He then passed a recession onto Bush.

____________________

Trosen:

Palin has to go one of 2 ways tonight.. and I'm not sure which way she tilts..

a) Just come out and attack Biden ruthlessly, try to goad him into getting nasty and going after her and slipping and saying something that can be seen as "sexist" or demeaning. Until yesterday I was convinced that was they way she'd have to go.

b) Just turn it into storytelling time. Try to recapture the charm and folksiness that made her such a hit off the bat with middle-American women voters. Talk about her kids. Talk about her son in Iraq (Biden can actually steal her thunder on that with his own son going soon, which I bet he will).

I am thinking it will be the latter. She has become precipitously unlikable over these last few weeks. Their only shot is to try to recapture the Palin "magic." And that won't happen by turning her into a pit viper. Problem is, this isn't some Alaska legislator she's going against.. so the cute insults with a smile won't stagger Biden much, if at all. But she can't tell campfire stories and avoid the issues all night. That's the double-edged sword she's facing.

1) If she stumbles, bumbles, and falls flat on her face (like most people expect), that is what it is. But I don't think that happens, at least based on the what I understand is the format of the debate.

2) What if she is very successfully holds her ground on the facts and clearly states the policies of the McCain campaign? Is that a win? These are the policies and positions that have more or less got them down 7/8 points right now. So is the best the McCain camp is hoping for that she successfully articulates the very unpopular positions of the campaign? Ouch. Her only shot of significantly helping the campaign tonight is to avoid the issues, sound competent when necessary, recapture the "charm" that initially won her favor, and then hope Biden either tiptoes too much or goes overboard and demeans her. It's a tall order, but not impossible. We'll see.

Complete bullsh#t, but it's all they can do to make themselves believe this garbage.

That's the part that's most disturbing. She was picked too early, she was unprepared for the media onslaught that McCain, Obama and Biden have faced already. McCain effectively destroyed any chance she has in the future. And she would have been a real force in about 4 or 5 years.

Palin needs to just ask Joe Biden the following:

3. If elected, do you intend to govern as liberals?

---
I have rather different opinions than you, but on this you mirror what has been my own opinion.

If Palin does poorly tonight, it will be seen as confirmation of poor judgment on McCain's part, and will finish off his campaign.

If she holds her own, seeming more coherent than she has in recent days, but does not shine, McCain's judgment will not be seen in quite such a bad light and if I had to guess will give McCain a 1-2% boost. This would not be enough to really help McCain that much, but might be useful if other good news pops up for McCain.

If she comes off very well, I could see a 2-4% boost for McCain, returning it to a tight race, barely leaning Obama, but giving McCain a large opening and a good amount of momentum.

So, according to our resident genius Boomshak, GWB inherited an economy in recession and, by 2007 at least, had turned it all around. Our economy has actually improved under GWB?

This is the caliber of lunatic we are talking about here people.

Tyler:

@boomshak

The problem with that question is that when Palin, or any other right-winger says "liberal" they basically mean "terrorist-lover who hates america, wants to take all your money, and wants to force you to become gay".

If Biden could be sure that Palin meant the true definition of liberal - one who supports helping those who need help the most, and keeping the government out of your personal life, then I'm sure he'd have no problem answering yes to all three questions.

____________________

jamesia:

I agree with you javakah... Palin will do "okay" and we'll see a 1-2% return to McCain. Hopefully that's enough to help McCain's nerves calm down so he doesn't look like he's about to eat whoever's speaking to him... and he'll perform alright at Tuesday's debate. If he fails next Tuesday, then the gains will go back to Obama for good probably.

It isn't odd at all if you understand economics. It's got nothing to do with MSM. While it may not show up in a traditional GDP measurement, Americans started hurting the minute oil crossed $80 a barrel last October. It's just hard to measure inflation properly in that environment, especially against GDP. Prices going up makes it look like the economy is expanding somewhat more than it is.

It certainly has gotten worse, but people have been feeling it since last year. It will turn as soon as someone gets into office that stops letting Americans believe that money grows on trees and we can lower taxes and spend forever.

While there will probably be a slight improvement for McCain after tonight's debate*, there's no way it erases or even significantly diminishes a 5+ point national lead.

I think that's easily explained by their votes on the Senate floor. the bailout plan is still very unpopular, and both candidates are staunchly for it.

He has posted today a great piece on RCP today which I recommend to Boomshak to read.

With regards Tracker average Saturday I don't expect to be any less favorable to Obama indeed
Ras tomorrow +7/+8; Gallup+6/+8; D/Hlhe +6/+7; R2K +11; GWU +6/+7.

Sorry Boomshak never happy mornings for John McCain. Don't reckon the VEEEP debate to have an impact - but I have been wrong before.
