Again, proably does not mean too much when it comes right down to it, like a poll, but gives some hope if you are for Obama and/or against McCain.

People get so caught up in media hoopla over candidates and national polls, they forget this election is not going to be decided by Sarah Palin's glasses or John McCain's sob story. Its the economy and the electoral map. Obama still leads on this map because of certain key states in Obama's favor. The democrats will have the last laugh Obama's victory in November will be like Obama's victory in the primary. John McCain will come back too little too late.

Polls aways change anyway. It only took McCain to have a convention and take a VP on his ticket to finally jump at all. If you have to do all that then I say enjoy why you can.
