Well, McCain has certainly come along way since in the last 14 months. All the folks on the board from the right who trashed him for early have lined up like little lap dogs as he has risen in the rankings by moving from his "maverick" stance to that of a set of principles that he fought against for years.

Maybe the Thread Title should just be McCain's Principle's Down for the Count.

Stronger that ever??? McCain still can't break above that 42-44% running trend. Even with SuperSarah.

Wasn't this thread started after McCain went broke and fired all his staff? The whole country pretty much counted him out. It really was a miraculous comeback.

McCain TV Ratings Beat Obama in Preliminary Numbers
By Andrew Krukowski

Presidential candidate John McCain's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention drew more television viewers than his rival Barack Obama attracted at the Democratic party's event last week, according to preliminary ratings from Nielsen Media Research.

Across all broadcast networks Thursday, Sen. McCain’s speech ended the night with a 4.8 rating/7 share, compared to Sen. Obama’s 4.3/7 average, according to overnight numbers from metered households in 55 U.S. markets measured by Nielsen. These ratings are preliminary, however, and are subject to change.

NBC’s coverage of Sen. McCain’s speech started directly at the tail end of the opening game of NFL season, with the speech pulling in a 6.3 rating/10 share, topping Sen. Obama’s speech last week by 26%. That lead-in may have boosted audiences who last night turned out in droves to watch Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin introduce herself to the country.

ABC’s showing of the McCain speech averaged a 4.5/7, down 2% from the same night of the Democratic convention last week, while CBS’ coverage took in a 3.4/5, an increase of 3%.
