Last Post of the night: What is McCain doing?

October 31, 2008

I’ve noticed a pattern with McCain.  He has stuck close to Pennsylvania (Obama leads 55 to 43), Virginia (Obama leads 53-44) and Ohio (Obama leads 51 to 47) as if they are his only salvation.  I understand he needs to win those states in order to win.  But can McCain afford to pay the ultimate price of losing everyplace else?  He has 4 days left and he needs to up his game and start paying attention to the other states he might be losing.

  1. Florida:  Obama 51 – McCain 47
  2. Indiana: Obama 46 – McCain 47
  3. Georgia: Obama 46 – McCain 48
  4. North Carolina: Obama 52 – McCain 46
  5. Missouri: Obama 48 – McCain 46
  6. North Dakota: Obama 44 – McCain 41 (Obama had pulled of ND and still is winning?)
  7. Montana: Obama 45 – McCain 48

Each of the states on that list is a red state.  True, just because the polls are close does not mean McCain will not win some, but he needs them all.  Can he really take the risk?  Obama was in Florida, Virginia and Missouri and had surrogates like Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton all over the place stumping in other states including red states.

McCain needs to do more than hang in PA, VA and OH.  His only surrogate seems to be Joe the plumber.  McCain needs to get some real surrogates and get people out on the trail.  In fact, where is McCain’s surrogates?  Do he have any?  I’ve only seen him and Barbie on the trail and no one else from the GOP party.

Obama is even talking about putting a stronger ground game in Arizona and possibly swinging by and having a rally during the time he goes back to the west coast.  McCain needs to get more surrogates or up his game on places he visit per day and start seriously crossing the map.

Enough said.
