Now we know why Mr. McCain chose to "suspend" his campaign. Actually, in craps parlance, he placed a sucker's bet, like the field, corner, or "C & E." Anyway, Obama is leading in North Carolina for the first time, by a margin of 49-47. And this is from Republican pollster Scott Rasmussen. I think this McCain gambit is all the guy has left in in pea shooter.
Obama scores well with Dems and indies:
Eighty-five percent (85%) of Democrats now say they’ll vote for Obama, up from 79% a week ago. The Democrat also has a ten-point lead among unaffiliated voters. McCain gets the vote from 89% of Republicans.
And 81% of his voters are enthusiastic. He also has high favorabilities. On the downside, McCain is getting 64% of white voters.
