Gallup Poll: McCain over Obama 50-46%


This is even better than I expected, but the bounce is far more dramatic than the mere numbers suggest.

“McCain leads Democrat Barack Obama by 50%-46% among registered voters, the Republican’s biggest advantage since January and a turnaround from the USA TODAY poll taken just before the convention opened in St. Paul. Then, he lagged by 7 percentage points.”

So, from just before the convention to after the convention – the poll was conducted entirely after the convention – McCain has gone from -7% to +4%, an 11% gain.

I’ve always expected that Obama would lose the election quite safely, but with numbers this bad this early – Dems are almost always ahead at this point – we could now see a meltdown of epic proportions and a McGovern-scale blowout.

Classic Song Jazzed Up


I present to you a jazzed up version of an old classic, “That’s Amore”.

Here’s a version by Patrizio Buanne, a very successful Italian.
