    were already part of the narrative.

    Sadly, disastrously, McCain is now odds-on to be the next president. (BTW, the Kos daily tracking poll apparently oversamples Democrats. According to Gallup, Dems currently have a 5 percent advantage in party identification; the Kos poll samples 9 percent more Dems than Republicans. Look at pollingreport.com. Only one poll in the last two weeks has Obama with a lead).
    •  Did you look up the polls for 9/3 to 9/17, 2008? (0+ / 0-)

      Was I correct that only one poll in two weeks had Obama with a lead?

      Missing from this is the point of the diary: that Kos was being a lefty ass for withholding his support for Obama.

      Maybe I was looking at polling report instead of real clear, but the first 10 days of Sept. were pretty bleak for Obama. Note the USA Today/Gallup poll that gave McCain a 10 pt lead!
