More "bad news" for Obama`

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

One theme over the summer is that whatever happens in the election, it's always "bad news" for Obama. Here's some more. From The Page and Quinnipac University:

Palin Boosts McCain In Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll Finds; But Obama Leads In Two Of Three Battlegrounds --- FLORIDA: McCain 50 - Obama 43; OHIO: Obama 49 - McCain 44; PENNSYLVANIA: Obama 48 - McCain 45
Here are the August numbers:
FLORIDA: McCain 47 - Obama 43; OHIO: Obama 44 - McCain 43; PENNSYLVANIA: Obama 49 - McCain 42
So, sure, McCain did improve his numbers in FL and PA. But lets look at Ohio:

August: Obama 44 - McCain 43;
Today: Obama 49 - McCain 44;

That is the largest lead Obama has had in Ohio since mid-July. And he's still ahead in PA. All in the face of the McCain/Palin national convention bounce. But "Palin boosted McCain's numbers". That's the headline. We'll take that "bad news" any day of the week.
