McCain surges!

July 29, 2008

It looks like the betting markets are finally seeing sense.

I’ve been critical, make that extremely critical of the McCain campaign, but I’ve never wavered in the idea that McCain should be the favourite. It looks as if John McCain is enjoying a surge in the betting markets to accompany his better poll ratings.



  1. wow i wonder what is to account for this because the recent gallup has obama up by 8 or 9 an alltime high.

    maybe they sense that obama is being hurt by the surge talk or something of that nature

    Obama’s recent comments on Iraq are pretty vague as well I discuss his and john mccains failure to move us onward in Iraq at


  2. CLARIFICATION: I only count polls that include likely voters. The latest Rasmussen has McCain only 1 point behind Obama.

  3. McCain has clearly flip-flopped on Iraq, the biggest issue of all: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25918699/

    His stance is now nearly identical to Sen. Obama’s. Republicans have no one left to vote for.

    His goose is cooked.

  4. Clearly flip-flopped? Of course winning lessens the needs for troop.
