And it doesn't look good for McCain. Obama has matched his highest lead ever.

Expect the number of threads smearing Obama to shoot up here as the usual suspects go into desperation mode



Today

Obama McCain

I was shook by the 50/42 I heard... but I think there's going to be a boomerang effect now that the Republicans slaughtered the Dems on the bailout.

NC is still tied in some polls. I never thought I'd see the day. I even chided a few Obamatrons about that earlier this month. I might have to eat some crow.

Me too. I have seen this before and it did not last long.

Funny how they point fingers and the day of Palins announcement they wiped out of the memory this board uses with useless lies.

Most polls put the opposition to the bailout around 55%. If anything, that bodes worse for Congress than these two, unless they vote for it. Obama probably will. McCain might not unless he can figure a way to spin it. He will lose the fiscal conservative vote.

That kind of lead will not only result in an Obama win, but a 60 member, filibuster proof Democratic Senate and 25 more GOP House seats changing hands.

Ahhhh! .....................The smell of victory!

LOL. Keep dreaming. The democrats just took credit for bailing out Wall Street. Expect the Democratic majorities in Congress to go DOWN. The voters are not happy about this.

I doubt it. 80B worth of new programs vs. eliminating earmarks and their evils?
