    Polling in Michigan:

    Since the crisis on Wall Street began two weeks ago, Obama has steadily widened his advantage over McCain. In a poll taken Sept. 14-17 by the Michigan firm EPIC-MRA, McCain trailed Obama by just 1 point. In a new poll taken from Sept. 20-22, that gap had widened to 10 points.

    And in an even more recent survey conducted by the Iowa firm Selzer & Co., Obama led McCain 51 percent to 38 percent.

    “Among whites, I still think he is lagging among older white men without a college education, but everyone else, including independent women, [is] moving toward Obama,” EPIC-MRA President Bernie Porn.

    I don't understand how Obama came out of this crisis looking more favorable than John McCain. They both supported the bailouts, and both voted for them. Neither one had any reasonable idea of what should be done. They both should have lost support.

    Plus we got a glimpse of the Obama Doctrine...."Call me if you need me".

    I think it's because McCain forced himself front and center thinking he would score political points. Making a huge production out of suspending his campaign and promising to not go back to campaigning UNTIL a deal was done...even going so far as to try to cancel the debate.

    McCain slapped his face on the front of this bailout while Obama laid back and worked behind the scenes. Obama didn't turn it into a political issue.

    McCain also in just a 12 hour period took credit for the bailout passing and then placed blame on Obama when it didn't.

    McCain is seen as erractic and ill-equiped to deal with the economic crisis, mainly because he swung from both sides at any given moment....For it/Against it.... voted for it/but thinks President should veto it....against earmarks/but voted for bill with 150 bill dollars in earmarks.

    That is how Obama came out on top during the bailout.
