Less Than Three Weeks Until Elections

October 15, 2008

With less than three weeks until the presidential election, some political analysts say that John McCain continues to change his political strategies to try to gain ground in the polls.

The UVA Center for Politics says McCain is focusing on the economy instead of on painting himself as an underdog, and attacking Barack Obama.

"He's got the anchor of Bush unpopularity tying him down right now, and the economic situation on Wall Street isn't helping," said Center for Politics analyst Cordel Faulk. "He's just got too much of a strong tide to swim against, and probably can't work in an environment that is just this bad."

There will be more details about Wednesday night's debate on CBS19 News.
