Obama's Lead Gaining in the Polls

Despite a strong showing by John McCain, especially on the foreign policy segment of last week's debate, Barack Obama is gaining ground in the polls, and at you can see the evidence.

Conventional wisdom is the worse the economy does, the more it favors Obama, although in my opinion, that's just proof of the simple minded American people, who actually think an Obama Presidency would HELP our economy. Unless the Senator from Illinois changes his tax positions and plans on cutting several of his proposed programs, that clearly isn't going to happen!

Now, you can read into the polls what you want, and the national polls mean little, when compared to the "battleground state" polls (as states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Florida are the key to winning the election)... But McCain is in a bit of trouble, due to both the economic crisis and also due to the fact Palin simply NEEDS more exposure!

We'll see how the Governor of Alaska does during her debate with Joe Biden, on Tuesday. But a dismal performance by Palin could be a knock-out blow to McCain, since he already trails in almost all of the polls...

Remember - the American people don't always choose the right candidate. There's plenty of evidence to back that statement up. But regardless, McCain needs to put the pedal to the metal, and get some momentum back quickly, or we may be in for a rude awakening on November 5th.
