By the way, where was/is the severe scrutiny of Joe Biden or Barack Obama? Where was/is the highly skeptical media? I mean, Obama descended from the clouds and instantly became The Savior overnight, without 1/10th the scrutiny Palin has received in just the past two weeks. <br><br>The bigger question is why didn't Obama get the massive "bounce" out of his convention? To listen to the mainstream liberal media, the whole world (and maybe even some aliens on Mars) are invested in "hope/change/yes we can" Obama. To hear them tell it, he should be 3,457 points ahead of McSame by now. <br><br>***************<br><br>This space left intentionally blank

The polls are kind of interesting to look at in terms of trends and such. What I absolutely abhor about them is how a news agency will find some odd result that a statistics expert would call an outlier and make it a headline. Then there is the "internals" where they drill down to an often times made up demographic (like "values voters") and again look for movement that more demonstrates a shift in sloganeering than a shift in real votes.<br><br>All that said, the numbers are not really doing anything that anyone thought they wouldn't. Sen. Obama got an uptick during the convention... check. Sen. McCain stepped on it with an odd vice presidential pick... check. Both conventions rallied numbers in both parties' "bases"... check. The numbers are returning to normal after the conventions... check.<br><br>Now in the next few weeks, we'll watch the numbers make their slow and deliberate trek to the election.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
"With the mainstream liberal media, seemingly in concert with the Obama campaign, going negative on Palin, it isn't surprising McCain's numbers have settled back down."<br><br>well well well... if McSame hadn't tried to sell her for much, much more than she was, incl. Foreign Policy experience because Alaska was next to Russia... ... and LYING about her record (bridge, earmarks, plane, etc)... many journalists might have been more understanding. But you can't sell "damaged goods "as "New" and expect the buyer to just accept your word, esp when you've lied before.<br><br>so McCain-Palin got caught in their own deceptions.. and you want to cry about it... what happened to the old GOP line, accept responsibility for your own actions ?<br><br>David (OFI)
