The latest New York Times/CBS News Poll shows John McCain’s angry, race-tinged campaign tactics have backfired with the American public.
Over all, the poll found that if the election were held today, a stunning 53% of voters now say they plan to vote for Obama, and a pawltry 39% would vote for McCain.
Voters say their opinions of Barack Obama have become twice as favorable in recent weeks. Voters report their views of John McCain have become three times more negative.
Initially, McCain had promised to run a positive, issue oriented campaign but in recent weeks, the Arizona senator has run a campaign that is 100% negative and the American isn’t buying it. Especially against the back drop of the worst economy since the Great Depression.
