1. McCain seen winning undecided voters. Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton; Arnon Mishkin, a member of the Fox News Decision Team; and Timothy Carney of the Evans-Novak Political Report have all independently concluded that John McCain is likely to win a very large percentage of the undecided vote.
"Right now, we foresee McCain winning most of the closest states," Carney reported.
With polls tightening, the Associated Press reported that McCain has a deep personal belief that he can win. He was "showing gritty determination" and fighting on as an "enthusiastic underdog."
"I guarantee you this will be a very close race and I believe I'm going to win it," McCain said.
Some observers believe that many undecided voters are actually for McCain. This analysis was partially confirmed by a report by one McCain volunteer who recently went door-to-door in his Virginia precinct passing out campaign literature.
When he arrived at one house, he was surprised to see an Obama volunteer already on the doorstep talking to the residents. As he waited, he could hear the couple tell the Obama representative that they were undecided. After the Obama person left, the McCain volunteer approached the same couple, who enthusiastically told him they were strongly supporting the Republican ticket.
Carney said "pollsters are factoring into their results an assumed higher black turnout" and that Republican voters "are far coyer about answering pollsters."
2. Richard Viguerie releases likely "To Do" list for Obama-Pelosi-Reid. Based on the voting records and speeches of the Democratic presidential candidate and his top Congressional allies, the chairman of ConservativeHQ.com has put together a list of what he believes are their top agenda items.
The first item on the list was: Making America a socialist country. In a recently released 2001 radio interview, Obama laments that "the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth" and says the legislative and executive branches are best able to bring about "major redistributive change."
"Make no mistake about it. If Obama is elected President, and the Democrats significantly increase their control of the House and Senate, our free enterprise system will be replaced with a Socialist / Marxist system," Viguerie said.

3. Bill Ayers is "the issue that won't go away." To the frustration of the Obama campaign and its appendage, the mainstream media, Bill Ayers is "the issue that won't go away"-on the Internet and wherever people gather. For everything you need or want to know about him, go to
4. Republican National Committee (RNC) borrows $5 million. Faced with tight races to retain eight GOP seats in the U.S. Senate, the RNC gave $2 million of the money it borrowed to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and $3 million to various Senate campaigns. The goal is to keep the Democrats from obtaining a filibuster-proof supermajority of 60 in the Senate, which would give them essentially total power in that chamber.
