Obama losing ground at home?
Despite big headlines for his recent overseas trip, and Ms. Huffington‘s useless enthusiasm, it looks like Obama is actually losing ground at home. Many news source agree, including a story on today’s Los Angeles Times: “Obama had slipped a few points and had a statistically insignificant edge over McCain, 41% to 40%” and “McCain sarcastically said: ‘With all the breathless coverage from abroad, and with Sen. Obama now addressing his speeches to ‘the people of the world,’ I’m starting to feel a little left out. Maybe you are too.'” A few days ago the same daily pointed out that “only a minority of votes see Obama as a familiar figure with whom they can identify”. Essentially the race is getting closer and closer, and most likely it will be decided (one more time) by the mid-town, provincial, white-collar America – not by grand speeches in front of International audiences.
