It wouldn’t have been terribly hard to predict that the economic crisis (on top of recent history’s most unpopular president) would result in Obama widening his lead in national polls.
That was the last month. This month, the scenario is less obvious.
Will the McCain camp’s desperate, soul-selling, racist and nationally depressing personal attacks results in the polls tightening back up (following a historical trend)? Or have people had enough? Will independent voters say enough is enough and reject personal attacks in an age of increasingly ineffective government when the times call for the opposite?
I’m hoping. I’m not, however, betting.
