Should John McCain Be Worried?

John McCain is up 2.8% in the national polls, according to RealClearPolitics.com.  When those polling samples are expressed by state, Barack Obama leads the electoral race with 273 electoral votes (vs. 265 for McCain).  In other words, if the election were held today, Obama wins the presidency, McCain wins the popular vote. Nope, no irony there.

I think it’s fair to say that this week was ideal for John McCain: he has the convention bump, Palin is getting a lot of love and sympathetic attention in the national media, and Obama hasn’t done much to distract attention away from McCain or Palin.

All three of these things presumably end starting with Palin’s interview with CBS on Thursday.

2.8% isn’t much of a bump – not when this needs to be the best week of your campaign.

  1. It scares the bejeezus out of me that McCain is ahead in any poll. And it confuses me. Are people really falling into those lies?
