Mason-Dixon

If you like the  Mason-Dixon polling organization, which has a solid reputation, and you are rooting for John McCain, you might have reason to hope, just a bit today. The last batch of polls have him up narrowly in Florida, Ohio, Missouri, and North , within the margin or error in Nevada and Virginia. That tells me that either all of those are wrong or the national polls with big leads for Barack Obama are off. (It is hard to imagine the popular vote going to Obama by 10 percent while McCain ekes out wins in those states.)

That suggests that the race on an electoral level at least may wind up close, with Colorado and Pennsylvania the decisive states. Or it may turn out that McCain closed fast but came up a buck short in state after after. In two days all questions will be answered.
