It is certainly no time to get cocky when McCain has pulled to within five points of Obama in New York.

Five points. In New York.

I didn't see that. That IS a surprise.


New Jersey has tightened up, too. I can't imagine McCain will actually win either state, but still.

Well, maybe he can exploit the economic shocks to his advantage. He made a good speech today on the economy, I understand, which is smart and plays to one of his strengths.

Both of them are going to try to score points on the economy, but I'd say Obama has a bigger advantage. We'll see. It's only September.


Doesn't early voting start in Ohio in a couple of weeks? It's later than we think...

Anyway, it looks as if that New York poll was a false alarm, so that's one less thing to worry about.

John Petty

These polls are all over the place. I'm still expecting Obama to get a bounce on the economy, but not much of one has shown up yet, outside of the NY Times poll.
