According to the polls today, Obama has pulled out in front of McCain by quite a bit. I think McCain not speaking to the issues and just trying to trash Obama has backfired for him. Obama makes good sense and that appeals to people who are sick to death of the kind of political campaign of the past. The poll can be viewed by going to the site of the Daily Kos here..http://www.dailykos.com/
