In the latest Gallup tracking poll McCain has taken a 46 -44 lead over Obama. This poll was taken after the VP annoucment but before the Democratic convention. Although by almost all counts the first day of the DNC was a complete waste of time, with the exception of Ted Kennedy's speech.
What does this mean? It means this election is already in the bag for Republicans. This is shocking even to me. If there was ever a situation where the Democrats should win an election it's this year. All the factors favor them, slow economy, unpopular war, Republican candidate that has trouble with his own base. However the Democrats did what they always do found the most unelectable candidate they could and gave him the nomination. Now it's their party that is divided while the Republican Party is rallying around John McCain. Can you say landslide?
