Discounting that one weird Gallup Poll from last week, John McCain has not had a lead in any non-tracking poll since May 16th.
You would think that a candidate unable to overtake his opponent for nearly three consecutive months would be a big story, but you’d also think that Miller Lite couldn’t both taste great and be less filling. And you’d be right.
Also note that in non-tracking polls, Obama’s averaging around a 6-point lead since the beginning of August.
Polls at this point, of course, are largely meaningless, but you’d think that, given the utter fixation on Obama’s “staganation” at a healthy lead and the apparent lack of effect of McCain’s game-changing ads, there’d be some coverage to that effect. Ooh, never mind, Sanjay Gupta is interviewing Matthew McConaughey about his baby!
