And Here Comes Johnny!

What's this? Rasmussen has McCain down just 3 points. And Gallup has him down just 2.

What's going on?

Hey Gil,

You might find this a little interesting. A student from Widener University's Young Republican Club was kicked out of the Obama rally yesterday, simply for wearing a McCain t-shirt. Oddly enough, the President of Widener was okay with this and let it happen. (Well that is of course because he's a personal friend and co-worker with Joe Biden). Where are our First Amendment rights?

By the end of his campaign Barack Obama will have spent ¾ of a Billion dollars (!), outspending McCain by 4 to 1. He also has the Liberal Media, all of Liberal Hollywood and the Entertainment industry on his side, as well as Liberal Higher Education. And yet even with all that going for him he is STILL only a couple points ahead of McCain in the polls. What’s THAT tell you about how America feels about the smug and secretive Obama?

Zogby has Obama +5 which is up from +4.

From Rasumussen, if you read to the end:
"Prior to today’s update, Obama had been ahead by four-to-eight points every single day for 33 straight days. During that 33-day stretch, Obama’s voter support had stayed between 50% and 52% every day while McCain was in the 44% to 46% range. It will take another day or so to determine whether today’s numbers reflect a lasting change or statistical noise."

In general, the tightening has Obama staying 50% or better in most polls, and McCain fluctuating around 45%.

It looks like straw-grasping is the GOP's new national pastime.

Interesting mr. anonymous-ano - if the GOP is watching the polls and announcing anything thats progress, than why is yahoo'com's front page showing a projected EV count anointing Barry O our 44th president? Why are members of the liberal media spinning election news to "How should McCain close out with class"?

I don't see McCain squeaking out anything here especially this late, unless the race vote works against Obama. That's something no decent American wants to see or hear about.

INstead, it's time to prepare for Obama in 2009-2012, more red state/blue state and a midterm election battle in 2010 that has one of the chambers turning red.

Don't MY tax dollars support that place? Maybe time to call the DA's office...

Liberals are all about free speech ...right up until it comes to a message they don't want others hearing ...or seeing.

r-
I think you need to have a job to actually qualify as a taxpayer.

I doubt the student was JUST "simply wearing a McCain t-shirt", but rather causing a disruption of some sort.

McCain CANNOT win. The electoral environment for him is IMPOSSIBLE. I would bet anyone any amount of money that Barack Obama will be our 44th President. End of story.

In other news, Widener is not a public university so your tax dollars do not support it (directly, in any case). I also doubt that a student was thrown out "simply" for wearing a McCain/Palin shirt. And who kicked him out? Municipal police? Or a private security force? It matters. The First Amendment is a restriction on governmental actors, not private entities.
