Mark Halperin’s Three Things

Watch the McCain campaign. Can they get enough public data to make the argument that they are closing the race? Are they narrowing the margins enough in the battleground states to be able to say that they have a good chance to win this election? Watch to see if they get that data and if they convince the media that it’s the right narrative.
Watch the Senate and House races. Lots of contests are still very competitive. Watch to see the resource allocation and what kind of arguments there are on both sides about how many seats the Democrats will be able to gain.
Watch the last minute TV and radio interviews by both candidates and their key surrogates. McCain and Obama will both be interviewed on ESPN during halftime of “Monday Night Football.” Watch to see if any of that gains any traction, shakes up the dynamics or dominates things in a way that affects the final outcome.
