Re: Obama Fantasy

Stacy, Quinnipiac also has Obama ahead in all four of those states. Michigan and Colorado are, as you mention, close but Wisconsin and Minnesota are not. Iraq polling tends to vary based on wording because a core group of the electorate wants to leave without losing. If McCain is successful in framing Obama as the candidate of precipitous withdrawal, these numbers will matter. If Obama frames McCain as the candidate of an open-ended military presence in Iraq, a different set of numbers will matter more.

BTW, I meant to say "wee Obamacons."
