“McCain is in a good position to win every red state,” Black said. “Plus he is probably going to win Pennsylvania and Iowa.” Polls have narrowed sharply in Pennsylvania in recent weeks, though Obama still has a sizable lead of 7 points in the Real Clear Politics average. Black said he had seen a poll recently that showed McCain tied in the Philadelphia suburbs, a crucial swing region of the state.

1. Yeah, it's funny how no one believed McCain in 2008 yet fall for same shit this year...

Granted it was more obvious Obama was going to win that year but Jesus, you'd think these guys would realize by now all campaigns talk up their polling to make it seem they are stronger than they really are...

2. Not true, the media played the horse race story through the end in 2008

Not to mention the "Bradley Effect", which they used to troll that all the polls could be wrong.
