Public Realizes McCain is All-Negative-All-The-Time

You have to give the public some credit for realizing how completely negative McCain has been in his ads:

By a nearly six-to-one margin, voters say Republican presidential candidate John McCain is running a negative campaign against his Democratic rival, Barack Obama, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

Nearly three in 10 voters, 29%, pointed to McCain as the candidate running a negative campaign, compared to just 5% who said Obama is running a negative campaign. McCain’s 29% rating is the highest of any one candidate in the previous two presidential elections according to the WSJ/NBC News survey.

I just hope the public can understand the 'why' behind the negative campaign. It's because the issues and the Republican stance on the issues is a loser, so character assassination becomes the smoke screen. Hopefully people will look behind the curtain to understand why the McCain campaign is being so negative. To paraphrase Jon Stewart, McCain's 'got nothing'.
