McCain: Momentum in New Hampshire?
Is this the Petraeus effect
"Sen. John McCain attended what was more of a block party than a house party in Hollis Sunday. Dr. Jim and Jan Squires hosted the presidential hopeful and close to 300 people at their Pepperell Road home, wrapping up a busy two days in New Hampshire for McCain." (Joseph G. Cote, "McCain Makes Quick Stop At Hollis Party," Nashua Telegraph, 10/1/07)
New Hampshire Presidential Watch Blog: "McCain Draws Big Crowds At Saturday Events," Including "Standing Room Only" Town Hall In Epping. "I've been told that today McCain was able to draw some big crowds to his events. At an Exeter house party McCain drew about 250 people. While at the American Legion Hall in Epping it was standing room only." (Cosmo, "McCain Draws Big Crowds At Saturday Events," New Hampshire Presidential Watch Blog, 9/29/07)
Note as well that pollsters are starting to pick up McCain's surge
, with the latest American Research Group poll showing him tied in New Hampshire with Rudy Giuliani, and only four points behind Mitt Romney (who led McCain by 15 points only last month).
