McCain Closes the Gap

Issues don’t always flow from the top down — from the campaign
hierarchy to the voters. Sometimes they flow the other way, from an
angered public upward.
This is the case with the oil drilling and
energy issue. Every time Americans gas up, they are reminded that the
Democrats’ refusal to allow oil drilling virtually anyplace has caused
the long-term escalation in oil prices in the United States. Democrats
don’t say they oppose all drilling, but they do. You can drill, but not
in Alaska, not off shore, not in the shale, etc..
McCain is benefiting
and Obama suffering because of the drilling issue. It is most likely
this issue which is driving the closing of the race.
Rasmussen has the
race tied for two days in a row in his tracking and Newsweek has the
Obama lead collapsing from fifteen points to three. And it may be oil
that is driving the difference.
