Barack stands tall (for now) 

Looks as if Barack Obama’s trip abroad had its merit. The Illinois Senator and Democratic nominee for the presidency is currently leading 47 to 41 in the latest national poll.

National polls are wonderful, but if we’ve learned anything in the last eight years is that the election comes down to states. Delegates, the magic number of 271 needed to clinch the White House. Bush barely got it twice and as the electoral map stands now, even 47 to 41 does not describe the reality on the ground.

Senator John McCain is doing surprisingly well in these polls considering he’s a member of the party that has an approval rating below 30 percent.

The key is the state by state match-up that will define the fall campaign. In polls in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, Colorado and Minnesota, the difference between the candidates is negligible. Therefore, for either side to get too worked up over poll numbers in August is silly.

Even after the conventions later this month and early next month, that bounce will not last as we get into October and the real campaigning starts.

Bring it on!
