Ignore the Media Vultures; Come In From the Rain, Have a Cup of Joe and Take a Look at this Morning's Polls Numbers

One Post-Debate Snap Poll Finds McCain Capturing Majority of Independents

Even among many conservative commentators this morning there seems to be a shift in focus, away from winning and toward dealing with the eventuality of an Obama presidency.

It is not time to drink the Kool-aid, and there are reasons to ignore the funhouse mirror the major media are using to instruct us on what most of our fellow Americans are thinking.

The results of the poll commissioned by and conducted by InsiderAdvantage, with a margin of error of plus/minus 3 points, found that, overall, Obama won last night's debate by a 49-46 margin.  However, among respondents stating no party identification McCain was judged the winner 52-41.  With some states still showing sizable percentages of undecided voters, this may be a ray of light for the McCain campaign.

Polls, as always, should be viewed with a great deal of skepticism, but with the national Rasmussen poll showing McCain pulling to within 4 points for the first time since the end of September it should be enough reason to postpone implementing your Obama Survival Plan.
