Mason-Dixon released a new series of polls this weekend, with results from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Colorado, and Nevada. The polls were conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday. They show McCain ever so slightly ahead in Ohio and North Carolina, and within striking distance (ie. within the margin of error) in all the rest.
So if the race has tightened further over the last few days, and the McCain/RNC turnout machine can somehow match the Obama/DNC operation, and the undecideds break for McCain, and maybe there’s a Bradley effect of one or two points in a couple of the states…
What? After all, this is the election where we’re supposed to believe in the power of hope, isn’t it?
(By the way, stay tuned for my electoral predictions and a concise guide to watching the election night results, both coming up tomorrow.)
