A lot of people claim there is no last minute surge for McCain – yet we see Obama slipping in PA, VA and now Ohio – with a poll showing McCain in the lead by 2%. Those who claim not to see a surge away from Obama in these final days must be looking the other way when it comes to these polls. I am not sure it is enough to bring McCain back to win from behind one last time, but there is a ‘surge’ out there with voters heading his way.
Update: Â Looking at all the polls from Mason Dixon I see an endless line of tied battleground states. MO is McCain +1, VA is Obama +3, PA is Obama +4, FL Obama +2. Â All these are statistical ties. Only CO looks to be a clear Obama lead. So how is it Obama can be leading by 13% nationally and tied in 7 out of 8 battleground states? He can’t be of course. Which means those national polls showing a tight race are being confirmed by these state polls from Mason Dixon.
Update: Pennsylvanians not happy with Obama!
