John McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, says he is "jazzed up" for next Tuesday and predicts a major upset.
"We are witnessing, I believe, probably one of the greatest comebacks that you've seen since John McCain won the primary," said Davis.
Davis is basing his jazz on the idea that pollsters are underestimating the level of excitement and turn-out among Republican voters. Davis also said that in specific states, McCain was benefiting from a late surge: in midwestern Iowa for instance he said campaign internal polling had the state a dead heat.
McCain's own polling director thinks we're missing something else.
"That's just not America -- that's not America anywhere in the last generation and a half," Bill McInturff said.
"The most important thing to look at is party, and the most important thing to look at is 20 to 30 years of history in this country about that composition of the electorate."
What could he mean by that?
