McCain Moves Ahead
September 7, 2008
The Gallup numbers are out and McCain/Palin leads 48% to 45%. This is the daily tracking poll with 2,765 registered voters and a sampling error of plus/minus 2 percentage points.
I give most of it to Palin. The convention itself was lackluster save Wednesday night, Palin’s unveiling. She came through in the clutch; now, let’s see how she performs over the next 58 days. Also, the pathetic media performance and smear factories that popped up this past week probably helped to give them a “pity bounce”. We’ll see if it holds.
