Eldest DarDar and Precious Grandson are stuck for an extra five hours in an airport on their way here, so I thought I'd just quickly check the news. And for once (since I'm "not blogging") there's actually GOOD news!
WASHINGTON (AP) - The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch. The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain's "Joe the plumber" analogy struck a chord.
Three weeks ago, an AP-GfK survey found that Obama had surged to a seven-point lead over McCain, lifted by voters who thought the Democrat was better suited to lead the nation through its sudden economic crisis.
The contest is still volatile....
But watch this, you won't believe it: Missouri law enforcement officials ... on Obama's "Truth Squad"?! Get outta here.
