The Audacity of Pandering
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Florida shows McCain attracting 53% of the vote while Obama earns 38%. Last month, amidst talk of a possible Florida revote, Obama had closed to within single digits of McCain. In February, however, Obama trailed McCain by sixteen points.
If McCain is matched against Hillary Clinton, the race is a toss-up—Clinton 45% McCain 44%.
A scary thing for democrats to see Barack doing so poorly in a critical swing state like Florida, I'm sure. But its a state with an unusual demographic makeup, one that is shorter than most on Barack's base.
