By most election modeling, McCain has already lost.

    McCain can thank GW Bush for another election loss, this time the one in Nov, 08.

    =====================

    I love it. "Blame Bush"

    No matter who wins, four more years of "Blame Bush".
     
  3. Funny; I thought the election was held in November...

    1988 election

    The Dukakis/Bentsen ticket lost the election in an electoral college landslide to George HW Bush. His 17-point lead in opinion polls completely disappeared...

    George H. W. Bush/Dan Quayle (R) - 48,886,597 (53.4%) and 426 electoral votes (40 states carried)

    Michael Dukakis/Lloyd Bentsen (D) - 41,809,476 (45.6%) and 111 electoral votes (10 states and D.C. carried)

     
  4. American voters vote their pocket book primarily and opinion poll a few months ahead of election generally means nothing. The 1988 election proves the point entirely. GHW Bush won the 1988 election because the economy was still in good shape by election date.

    Perhaps the only way McCain can win the Nov 08 election, short of a major blunder by BO, is for the US personal income to jump to 2%+ by November coupled with a major drop in inflation/oil.
