Why The Polls Are Tightening - McCain Is Blowing His Cash Right Now
Advertisements [?]
The polls are tightening. This is in no small part due to the fact that John McCain is blowing through his primary cash right now. The real question is not so much the current polls, but whether it is wise for Obama to horde cash or whether he needs to spend his money now or later, as discussed in this article:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25757956 /

One thing to keep in mind, of course, is the RW bias by the MSM. If Obama spends money aggressively now, then there is less money leading up into the election when ABC and Fox News go crazy with Obama attack programs.
