  1. Absolutely. Though I believe it may have been the synergetic combination of them all rather than the sum of the individual issues. Without the economic meltdown (outside each candidate’s control) we may have seen a different result in spite of all the issues you list. I think it was how each candidate reacted and responded to the economic crisis that turned the tide.

  2. Reverend, I agree with you. I don’t think one factor can really be blamed for this. McCain’s lack of economic credibility certainly was a major factor, but Sarah Palin combined with generally bad timing and a spectacular opponent (Obama) pretty much doomed his campaign.

    Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll return frequently.
