The McCain Campaign Strategy In A Nutshell

Markos Moulitsas Zúniga has the latest Pollster.com numbers. It is ugly for John McCain. Barack Obama is polling over 50 percent in Florida, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Colorado, Virginia, Montana and Georgia. The swing states hgave swung in Obama's direction. My only question is how big Obama is going to win.

Zúniga makes an interesting point that sums up the McCain campaign strategy.

But he did see a slight improvement in Iowa -- proof that his evil plot to campaign in Iowa when it's way out of reach was a success! Of course, I'm not sure what going from a 14.2-point deficit to a 13.5 point really does for his victory chances, but then again, I'm not privy to his Rovian math.

Iowa is right-leaning, but has slipped from McCain. Imagine Obama spending precious time campaigning in Texas. Obama would never do that. He isn't that stupid.

I'm sure Amanda Marcotte wishes Obama would hold a campaign rally in Texas. It must suck being a feminist and lefty blogger in Texas. Only thing worse would be progressive blogging in Florida. Oh, wait...
