It Ain't over Yet - Morris: Expect the race to get closer

Voters have a short memory. I suspected that this financial crisis will be an old story by November. It's crazy to me that people would actually switch who they vote for over this issue, but there you have it.

Now, Dick Morris writes: EXPECT THE RACE TO TIGHTEN

A summary of his points:
  • Obama is peaking in the polls too soon
  • He has the spotlight now, and doesn't fare well in it
  • His spending plan and economic credentials are now in focus
  • He clearly lied about his 'he's some guy in my neighborhood' ties to terrorist Bill Ayers


But October may see the end of Obama's surge: He's peaking too soon.

Once the Democrat is seen as the clear leader and likely winner, the spotlight will inevitably shift to him. And he may not benefit from the increased attention.

Obama didn't do well when he last emerged on top, in later Democratic primaries. The more it appeared that Hillary Clintonwould lose, the more voter concerns over Obama's relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright cost him state after state in the later primaries.
