Back from my holidays in Morocco and Spain (it was fun, thank you – we sorta followed the ‘Moorish Trail’), and lo and behold! Barack Obama no longer seems to be in the lead. As the electoral college polls over at the (pro-GOP) Realclearpolitics.com and (more neutral) Fivethirtyeight.com websites show, John McCain has closed the gap. Obama needs to get worried.
The reasons why Obama is losing? It ain’t rocket science:
- He has not been able to convince voters that he’s made of the right stuff.
- People doubt him.
- He’s black. (Well, sorta.) Which doesn’t help, not in the USA anyway.
- They’re Americans; they can’t handle the truth!
In short, the four reasons that have been toiling in the back of my head ever since Obama became the Democratic candidate-in-waiting.
