I currently love checking the Yahoo Political Dashboard daily - where most states appear to be leaning blue - even though I know these polls are unreliable, and unless people turn out and VOTE, they mean nothing... I also admit that I like the idea of a "blue mandate" and I like how Obama's supporters seem to be focusing nationwide.
But the idea that Obama could lose using this strategy frightens me - what happens if Obama supporters are being distracted by the polls, and due to whatever reason -- long voting lines, hateful robocalls, Bradley effect (if that exists) -- for whatever reason, Obama doesn't secure the states that seem to be leaning his way now. What if, by a slight margin, McCain picks up the usual red states, and Obama doesn't secure states like PA & CO - much less states like OH, FL & NH... This scares me.
What about you? What do you think? Do you think Obama is making a tactical blunder?
