McCain will pull out of Minnesota this week!!
A new Minneapolis Star Tribune poll has Obama up by about 17 points compared with a virtual tie a month ago. McCain has poured almost a million dollars of advertising into the state, most of which were negative ads. The ads, coupled with his weebly wobbly views on the economy have caused this drastic shift. I have had my TV on all day and have yet to see a single McCain ad. If internal polling bears similar results to the Strib numbers, McCain will be 2 for 2 in giving up; the best political number he has ever seen.
This is not the age of Willie Horton nor land of the Swift Boat Waters. Negative ads/charges are fact-checked and responded to instantly, not in 2 days or 2 weeks. Sarah Palin, are you reading this? Sarah, are you reading anything at all? Really?
