Late Curmudgeon

Ivan and I recorded our show a few hours later than usual, then I had a few other things to do, so the podcast isn’t edited and posted yet. I’ll have it out before another 24 hours go by though. Promise.

Obama Weakens in Iowa

A new poll drops Obama’s Iowa lead in my 5 poll average to under 10%, which moves Iowa from “Strong Obama” to “Weak Obama”. In my “range of possible outcomes” that I do, this doesn’t make a difference, as I only allow the “Leaning” states (less than 5% lead) to move back and forth, not the “Weak” states (lead between 5% and 10%). But it certainly is a sign that things in Iowa aren’t going in a direction Obama would like.

Current Summary:

McCain Best Case – McCain 340, Obama 198
Obama Best Case – Obama 362, McCain 176

And if everybody gets their leans (and Obama gets DC) – McCain 283, Obama 255
