Watching the Polls


WATCHING THE POLLS….I sometimes feel a little guilty for not posting poll results more often, but I figure you hardly need me for that, do you? Still, we’re down to the wire and it’s worth seeing the big picture of public opinion as the race careens to its end. And the big picture is….no change. In the RCP poll of polls, Barack Obama is still way ahead of John McCain.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
