This latest report from Rasmussen is about the best polling news I've seen for John McCain all year. It says that McCain "is now trusted more than Barack Obama on nine out of 14 electoral issues tracked by Rasmussen Reports." Not only has McCain opened up a 51 to 39 edge on Iraq, but on the economy, the candidates are now tied 45 to 45. Polls have consistently been showing McCain with the advantage on foreign policy issues, but if Obama is deadlocked with McCain on economic issues, he simply won't be able to win the election. Also, the report shows the trust numbers trending toward McCain on every issue, even the ones he still trails Obama.
