I guess Kevin Madden would know. He tells Megyn Kelly that John McCain has this very annoying habit of winning elections in which opponents and pundits had considered him hopelessly lost. Kelly then observes that recent polling shows hints of a McCain rebound:

For more background on the polls, I’d suggest reading Jim Geraghty, who notes the large and increasing gap in party affiliation in the samples. Have the polls gotten skewed of late? I’d argue that they’ve been skewed all along, with some notable exceptions.

On the point, though, we’d better hope that Madden is right. No one predicted that McCain would win the nomination, not even while he was busy winning it. If he expects to produce a Rocky-like comeback, though, he’s going to have to score at least a knockdown in tomorrow night’s debate.
