Is Somethin' Happenin' Here?
You can still color me skeptical about McCain's chances of taking Minnesota in November (with or without T-Paw by his side), but when you look at the RealClearPolitics breakdown of the survey trend, you can't help but come to the conclusion that the race is tightening up. When the Quinnipiac University/Wall Street Journal/ Washingtonpost.Com poll came out in July showing McCain only two points back, I thought it was an outlier since the same poll had Obama up by seventeen only a month earlier. But now with recent polls from Rasmussen and Survey USA showing the gap at four and two points respectively, it looks like it was a valid indicator.
