PALIN IS STILL USING A TELEPROMPTER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD... All these people are out talking and she can not even do it...and the media say she makes a B-line from them as soon as she is finished... I honestly can not believe people would let this person be VP....

ON a side note,,,I think it is a clear who is needed to make a turn around in this economy...after today for sure...

Rasmussen is the best poll to use as they have been correct more often than any other. Gallop goes off of registered voters not likely voters...reason they are so wrong most of the time.
Rasmussen latest polls have McCain leading the way in the electoral count and in the battleground states. McCain leads in Colorado, Ohio, Florida and is tied in Penn. and Virginia.
Until the debates it is too early but I like the trend.

What part of "+8, to -5, to -2" doesn't register to you that the little blip that McCain got after the convention is starting to reverse? Just look at the overall timeline, and you'll see that McCain had a few such blips over the last year or so, and they've all turned around quickly in Obama's favor. Give it a few more days and you'll see this blip disappear as well, just like the others have.........

Well, I don't think so.

Someday Palin is going to be openly talking to the press and you watch out. You just wait and see. She's not quite ready to face the press yet, but you just wait and see.

Give this gal some time. What do you expect? This gal should be deflecting questions from the press. You'd be running from the press, too, if you didn't know what you were talking about.

Palin doesn't have to prove herself. Let's talk about the real issues like lipstick on pigs. Isn't Palin great at giving the same speech over, and over, and over again. She keeps repeating the same lies over and over again, but it's kind of cute. Who cares if she's not telling the truth? She's won the hearts of millions of people and for good reason.

There will be some problems for Obama real soon, in the next 2-3 weeks. The left can't really be dumb enough to think that the McCain camp has fired all their guns yet can they?

With Obama joining in with attack ads of his own, its about to get REAL NASTY, and I get a feeling that when the smoke clears, not only will Obama lose, but he will never run again.

If you want to complain about a teleprompter complain to Obama, the #1 guy on your side.

'cuse me, but Obama's bounce was about 3-5 depending which poll you look at. McCain's bounce was about 10-13. More interesting is that all the polls, ABC, NBC, CBS, USAToday, show an erosion of support for Obama with groups he once led.

You're not serious, are you? I haven't noticed that criticism of Obama's addiction to the teleprompter. Virtually ALL his speeches he uses the tele.
