Fun with polls
Looking at politics1.com and their collection of recent poll results-some random observations:
ARIZONA (Mason-Dixon): McCain - 47%, Obama - 41%. > McCain only by 6 in his home state?
CALIFORNIA (Rasmussen): Obama - 51%, McCain - 37%. > No matter how much you pander to the left, you're not winning California.
COLORADO (Quinnipiac): McCain - 47%, Obama - 46%. And (Mason-Dixon): Obama - 46%, McCain - 43%.> These mountain states are must wins for McCain I think.
INDIANA (Rasmussen): McCain - 46%, Obama - 42%. > Q. Could picking Bayh instead of Biden won Indiana for Obama? A. Nah.
KANSAS (SurveyUSA): McCain - 58%, Obama - 35%. > Q. Could picking Sebelius instead of Biden won Kansas for Obama? A. No. No, no, no. Not at all.
MICHIGAN (Detroit Free Press): Obama - 46%, McCain - 39%. > Q. Could picking Romney win Michigan for McCain? A. Probably not, but maybe.
MISSISSIPPI (Rasmussen): McCain - 54%, Obama - 41%.> Could picking Bret Farve instead of Biden won Mississippi for Obama? A. Maybe if they flipped the ticket.
NEVADA (Mason-Dixon): McCain - 46%, Obama - 39%. > I'm going to Vegas in September. Should be fun.
NEW MEXICO (Mason-Dixon): McCain - 45%, Obama - 41%. And (Rasmussen): Obama - 48%, McCain - 44%.> This being in his home region and with all the pandering to the Hispanic vote, shouldn't McCain be up by 10 here instead of splitting polls?
TENNESSEE (Rasmussen): McCain - 56%, Obama - 32%. > You'd expect McCain to be ahead here, but by 24?
UTAH (Mason-Dixon): McCain - 62%, Obama - 23%. > McCain should put Romney on the ticket just to go for the record of largest victory in history in an individual state.
VIRGINIA (PPP-D): Obama - 47%, McCain - 45%. > I think Obama should start calling random people macaca. Just to see what happens. (Nothing, you can say racially charged things when you're a democrat. See Joe Biden.)
WYOMING (Mason-Dixon): McCain - 62%, Obama - 25%. > Makes the Cheney pick that more amazing. There was no chance they would lose Wyoming, they just thought Cheney was the best guy. I could say the same about the Biden pick, except that I don't want to.
