Aaron, I’m not sure this poll is good news for McCain. I’m sure the fact people want to know more about McCain will serve as a catalyst for the media to begin to cover his campaign. If these past few weeks have shown anything, it is that the longer Obama is in the spotlight and McCain is ignored, McCain will do better in the polls.
McCain’s recent ads, ads that have scored well with the public, have focused exclusively on Obama and the danger he represents. When McCain was down 6-7 points in the polls he was running ads about his time as a POW. While the story is nice, it made the issue John McCain. If John McCain is the issue this November, Obama will win in a landslide.
