The race is a lot closer than the media has been reporting for the last couple months. My figures give Obama a 1.6 point lead through October 28. I don’t know how it’s gonna turn out, but it is looking like a very close election right now.
The big election story on Monday was the L.A. times suppressing a video of Obama praising Palestinian radical Rashid Khalidi at a 2003 banquet. Talk about a stacked deck.
“A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi. . . The election is one week away, and it’s unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job — make information public.” — McCain campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb
