A biased media, a canadate for a party that is suppose to be handed the White House. and a strong support of Germans. Yes, Barack Obama is suppose to win the election hands downs, but:
- in spite of the favourable coverage he received for his trip last month to the Middle East and Europe, there has been no "bounce" for him in the polls;
- Obama enjoys a lead over McCain of only about 3-4%, which is worrying Democrats;
- a Pew Research poll released on Wednesday found 48% of respondents felt they had been hearing too much about Obama, compared with only 26% for McCain; and
- two new anti-Obama books were among the bestsellers on Amazon.com's top 20 list on Tuesday.
