Overshadowed by the VC debate and the bailout bill was the news that John McCain has decided to pull out of Michigan, but is that a wise move on his part? Realistically, Michigan and New Hampshire are the two Kerry states that could flip to McCain, now that he is pulling out of Michigan, that only realistically leaves New Hampshire (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Maine being long shots). With polling suggesting that Obama is likely to pick up Iowa and New Mexico this time, this means that he only need pick up one of the following swing states (Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Nevada, Colorado and longer shots North Carolina and Indiana) to win the White House. On the other hand, McCain would have to win all of the above swing states. Of course the polls could change, but it seems that Obama has a number of different ways to get to the White House, whilst McCain can't afford any slip ups. Do you think McCain is adopting the right strategy here? Should he have stayed in Maine? What do you think?

Could not agree with Taskr36 more. It's always the guy own waves money in the face of poor people who gets their votes. Democrats have been in charge of congress for the past two years and have during those two years taken us from a slight struggle to total collapse. And they promised they were going to fix things?

Michigan really stopped looking like a swing state weeks ago. They are more impoverished than most states and those in poverty vote democrat consistently. Here's a great article to show how democratic policies have promoted poverty consistently over the last 50-60 years. Sadly, those in poverty will never learn and just keep supporting politicians who promote welfare and keep them dependent on a broken system. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/20/beck.cities/index.html
