John McCain's support is "tanking"

Yesterday, I wrote about's campaign to hold John McCain accountable for his support of Bush's open-ended occupation of Iraq. (In today's WaPo, Chris Cillizza points out how successful early ads from MoveOn were in setting the stage for some key GOP defeats in the House last year.)

Interestingly, while most of the media continue to fawn over McCain, it looks like the public in some key primary states -- and especially independents -- are ahead of the curve in seeing through his straight-talk jive.

From the Boston Herald …

For seven years, conventional wisdom has said that [New Hampshire's] pivotal independent voters would line up behind maverick Sen. John McCain, as they did so famously in the 2000 GOP primary. But new polling data, to be released later this week, will suggest that might no longer be the case.
