An Inauspicious Poll for McCain
Jonathan's right that McCain does, indeed, have a deserved reputation as this election's comeback kid. And as Boston fans well know, a fatalistic attitude isn't necessarily fatal.
Still, the Boston Globe Web site currently features a "Red Sox Confidence Meter," that weighs whether fans think the Sox can come back from a playoff deficit to win the American League championship again this year. The choices: " Yes. The last two times the Sox were down, 3-1, in the ALCS, they came back to win." Or "No. This feels totally different than those two times. This team is done."
At the moment, the "No's" have it, with 65 percent. That's better than President Bush's disapproval number -- but still an inauspicious statistic for McCain.
