Because I thought John McCain stank it up last Thursday, I didn't find it too worrisome that more people watched his convention-closing speech than watched Barack Obama's the week before.
Whoops. Gallup is reporting that McCain now leads Obama among registered voters, 48 percent to 45 percent. And that particular trend line looks ominous for the Democrats.
So: either most convention-watchers disagreed with my take on McCain, or they thought Sarah Palin et al. were so awesome that they just didn't care.
