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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
