New Polls

I’m not putting much stock in national polls. Instead, I’m trying to keep my eyes on statewide polls. For what this is worth, Senator John McCain seems to have cut into Senator Barack Obama’s lead. Let’s see what the polls show when the race really starts in two weeks.

By the way, many commentators are trying to make a big deal out of Obama’s performance over the weekend. As you recall, Obama and McCain were invited to the mega-church, Saddleback. Obama stood in front of a conservative audience. The audience was polite but clearly sided with McCain. As expected, McCain gave answers that were cut and dry while Obama gave answers that were more nuanced. There were no unexpected questions. Obama’s performance was a little wooden. McCain’s performance was… John McCain. I suspect that Obama will perform better down the stretch.
