12. McCain was ahead by 5 at this point in 2008

I was curious as to how McCain was doing around this time in 2008. Gallup had him ahead by 5 points (48-43) and we know how that turned out! I'm a bit frustrated (and concerned) about how this race can be as close as it is. In my opinion Romney is one of the worst candidates to come along in a very long time so how can it be this close?? See how McCain was actually ahead in September of 2008 makes me feel a bit better. (Yes, I guess you could say the same for Obama being ahead--that he could also go the way of McCain--but I feel that the debates are only going to help Obama).
