American Polls: seeing red

Logged onto some of the poll websites to check the recent damage to the Democrats. It was a case of seeing red.

FiveThirtyEight has the Electoral College Vote at 277/261 in McCain's favour, with the popular vote at 50.1%/48.6%.

RealClearPolitics has a 47.5% to 45.0% lead to McCain based on an average of 10 national polls.

The latest price for McCain is 51.5 at Possum's mates Intrade.

Still early days. Don't start digging your bomb shelter just yet!

I live in a very red state--hoping to move to a blue state.

Well, if I can't move to Australia.

If you ever get your wish to move over here you can join Democrats Abroad Australia. Or just enjoy the place.

As you said Kevin, it's early and hopefully the Dems can turn it around. But they don't seem to be getting any kind of message out there - all I am seeing is their reactions to (i) Republican attack ads and (ii) Republican hissy fits about alleged smears. That won't win it for them.
