I’m not going to bounce up and down at the results of the Big Ten poll, which is only of registered voters, and has a margin of error of four percent.
But I’d be mildly pleased if I were McCain – they have Pennsylvania dead even at 45 percent each. Same deal in Iowa, a state that, in my head, I was already putting in Obama’s column this year. In Ohio, they have Obama up, 46-45. Same numbers in Wisconsin.
They put Obama up 4 in Michigan and 2 in Minnesota. The only state that is not in play in the region is (surprise!) Illinois.
In a week where most of the polling for McCain-Palin has been pretty bad, these are some cheery numbers.
