Analysis: To close for comfort if you’re Obama. Within striking distance if you’re McCain.
Question eveyone is asking: What the heck did the Obama campaign do with the $150 million in September campaign donations?? Is this really all the better of a lead you could buy?
About a week ago the polls were indicating an across the board Obama lead of 7-8%. It’s now down to about 4-5% with one week to go.
National polls lose their importance as we head into the final stretch. It’s the state by state electoral tally that will decide.
Keep an eye on Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Missouri, Colorado, and Nevada.
