In my blog a couple of days ago predicting a Barack Obama victory, I wrote about the fatal point in the campaign for John McCain:
“Then came mid-September, when John McCain lost this election. For weeks, all the talk in the press and across the nation focused on the economy, typically a Republican issue, except when the economy is in the tank and a Republican is in the White House. All American heard for weeks was that the economy was about to crumble so badly that we were about to witness the Depression of all Depression’s. The GOP’s August soufflé dropped in September.”
Daniel Gross writes for Slate that McCain lost the election on September 24, 2008:
“McCain managed to give Obama a run for the money through mid-September. The polls began to turn (decisively, it turns out) against him when the global financial system suffered a run on the money.”
Here’s the entire Slate piece.
