Gap Is Narrowing in Battleground States

McCain Chips Away At Obama's Lead In Four Key Races

By SARA MURRAY
July 25, 2008; Page A4

The presidential race is tightening in four key battleground states, with Republican John McCain holding an advantage among white male voters and Democrat Barack Obama keeping his lead among the youngest voters, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Results of the poll, which was conducted in partnership with The Wall Street Journal and washingtonpost.com, show the gap narrowing between Sens. McCain and Obama. Sen. Obama leads slightly in Michigan and by double-digits in Wisconsin, but by smaller margins than about one month ago. The two candidates are running statistically even in Colorado and Minnesota, compared to the respective five-point and seven-point lead Sen. Obama had in June.

Only poll that counts is in November.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

Be careful what you ask for, you might get it.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

The curious take on this week's polling is that with the enormous media attention garnered by BHO, he actually slipped in the polls! My hunch is that the more exposed he is, the less he is revered and worshipped.

BTW: The punch line from his Germany speech, "Now is our moment, now is out time, now is our chance..." came from Bono Live-Aid concert in 2005.
