McCain Lead Outside Margin of Error

Two polls–Zogby and Gallup–now have John McCain and Sarah Palin leading Barack Obama and Joe Biden by 4 and 3 percentage points, respectively.  Both leads are beyond the margins of error. 

Clearly, the voters like what they see in McCain and, especially, Palin.  These results also validate the idea that Democrat lies and smears aimed at Palin are actually helping  the GOP ticket.

Yes, that’s right.  Obama is now a supply sider.  He has acknowledged that tax cuts spur economic growth, and that tax increases on top earner could plunge the economy into a depression.

The confused young man, though, indicated he still plans to create an economic depression:
