McCain's Sagging Poll Numbers-Helped by Last Night's Debate?

8 October 2008 at 7:20:13 AM

I've been reading that John McCain needed something beyond the same old tired talking points last night, as a game changer, to help him in his losing battle against Obama. I wondered if he would bring the smears on the stage that he and Palin have been employing in their cocoons, but he apparently didn't want the public to see that nasty side of him so up close and personal.

Here's polling numbers from yesterday. Will post again in the next day to see how they change.

Time/CNN Poll-Obama Gains in Red States

WCU/NPR Poll-Obaba Ahead by 10 in PA

SurveyUSA- Obama Soara Ahead in PA

Research 2000-Dead Heat in Indiana

RGJ- Obama Takes Lead in Nevada

MPR Poll: OBama Surges Ahead in Minnesota

PPP Poll: Obama Regains Lead in Ohio

SurveyUSA- McCain Holds Lead in North Carolina

SurveyUSA-Obama Up by Double Digits in Wisconsin

Instant Polls Find Obama Won Debate

P.S. on my comment about how McCain did NOT get nasty the same way he is doing when he's in his own element, with supporters. From Informed Comment.

In the real world of political ads, McCain and his surrogates are shouting ugly insults at Barack Obama. He is accused is saying that US airstrikes have killed innocents. This is true and McCain said it, too. They say he was on a committee with a professor who used to be a Weatherman 40 years ago. And...?

How nonsensical these attacks are is demonstrated by the inability of McCain to repeat them to Obama's face.

What sort of allegation won't hold up in a debate? A flimsy one. One with the form of propaganda.

McCain's nasty personal attacks on Obama were apparently felt by his campaign to be inappropriate to a live appearance. They feared such smears would look mean in the mouth of a presidential aspirant.

But then why does it not look mean for McCain to "approve" the scurrilous smears?

Does he think we cannot see him?

Every time I see Palin and McCain on stage I'm reminded of an aging mafia Don standing next to one of the Bada-Bing girls. Just picture Palin twirling her hair and snapping gum shouting"that's right daddy, whatever you say".
