The law of diminishing returns appears to have set in when it comes to the constant personal attacks of McCain and Palin, according to a new poll of the New York Times and CBS which was released today.
The influential New York newspaper reported that “after several weeks in which the McCain campaign unleashed a series of harsh political attacks on Mr. Obama, trying to tie him to a former 1960s radical, among other things, the poll found that voters see Mr. McCain as waging a more negative campaign than Mr. Obama. Six in 10 of those surveyed said that Mr. McCain had spent more time attacking Mr. Obama than explaining what he would do as president; by the same margin voters said Mr. Obama was spending more of his time explaining than attacking.”
It is very apparent that the McCain/Palin ticket want to confuse the voters by concentrating on personalities and personal attacks and not on discussing the issues that are important to the nation.
Their campaign is in total disarray. It could very well take 10 years or more for the nation to recover from the disastrous policies of George W. Bush and the GOP. The mess that Obama is going to inherit on January 20, 2009, if he is elected, is huge.
