Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) — Republican Presidential candidate Senator John McCain told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he “guarantees” a win over Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Sunday. According to the Associated Press, McCain states that he believes the polls are tightening, and that his staff remains positive and determined of his win.
“I guarantee you that two weeks from now, you will see this has been a very close race, and I believe that I’m going to win it,” McCain stated.
Based on a review from the Washington Post, the McCain campaign holds strong and refuses to give up. Though they are aware that they are behind, they remain hopeful and will continue to be competitive. “We’re going to have to just get out our vote, work hard over the next nine days, and make sure that people know that there’ll be a better future. People are very worried now — very, very worried, and have every reason to be. I think it’s all about who can assure a better future,” McCain stated.
Senator McCain went on to speak in defense of VP running mate Sarah Palin’s $150,000 clothing purchases stating that some of the money will “go back”, and some to charity.
The Associated Press Poll states that the race is very tight, listing Obama with only a 1 point lead over McCain. However, CNN’s most recent poll indicates that Senator Barack Obama currently has an 8 point lead over Senator John McCain along with Yahoo, as well as an average 5-6 point lead in others.
