McCain's Incredible Growing Lead (Part 1): A Miracle In The Making

For many days we have chronicled Barack Obama's incredible shrinking lead. Today, we are happy to report that McCain's tortoise-like progress in the polls has allowed him to catch up with and now finally surpass the sputtering hare. The pollster Zogby has this to say about the latest numbers from the Zogby poll:

"Is McCain making a move? The three-day average holds steady, but McCain outpolled Obama today, 48% to 47%. He is beginning to cut into Obama's lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all.

"Obama's lead among women declined, and it looks like it is occurring because McCain is solidifying the support of conservative women, which is something we saw last time McCain picked up in the polls. If McCain has a good day tomorrow, we will eliminate Obama's good day three days ago, and we could really see some tightening in this rolling average. But for now, hold on."

(emphasis added)

For those not enamored by the tortoise vs. hare analogy, how about this one: The McCain-Palin team is like the American men's relay team at the Beijing Olympics who did not catch up with the French team until the very end of the final lap to out touch them at the finish and bring home the gold for Michael Phelps and the other Americans.

This election promises to be a very special and historic one for the Republican presidential ticket.

The mainstream media illuminati played around with these numbers the entire time, and probably even caused some GOP supporters to stay at home thinking the race was over.
