A new Sienna poll has John McCain within 8 points of Barack Obama in New York — the same poll had him trailing by 18 in August, while the New York Sun also notes the closeness of the race in Pennslyvania ( a recent poll had it within 5). In the wake of the pro-choice trial balloon you have to wonder if McCain is thinking he could have a chance to pick off a Northeastern state with Rudy, Ridge, or Lieberman on the ticket. For what it’s worth, I don’t think that’s a likely scenario.
