McCain brushes off polls, says 'we're doing fine'

(CNN) -- Despite his sagging poll numbers, Sen. John McCain said Sunday that he is "very happy with where we are" and very proud of his campaign.

Sen. John McCain says his campaign is "very competitive" in key states.

"We're doing fine," the Arizona senator said in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." "We are very competitive in many of the battleground states."

Perhaps 2 of those states are Denial and Senility?

McCain brushed off polls that show him trailing Sen. Barack Obama, saying those numbers are "all over the map."

"Those polls have consistently shown me much further behind than we actually are. It all depends on the voter turnout ... we're doing fine. We have closed in the last week." he said.

Obama leads McCain by 8 percentage points (50-42 percent), according to CNN's latest average of national polls.

McCain also spoke out against recent criticism of his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin.

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll suggests that Americans have an increasingly negative view of the Alaska governor.

According to that poll, 46 percent of respondents have a favorable opinion of Palin, compared with 59 percent at the time of the Republican National Convention. The poll showed an increase in the number of people who have an unfavorable view of her -- 51 percent compared with 29 percent in early September.

Of course they're going to show her in disfavor with all her negative comments.

The poll, conducted October 20-23, has a sampling error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points.

McCain said Palin "needs no defense."

"I don't defend her. I praise her," McCain said. "She has more executive experience than Sen. [Joe] Biden and Sen. Obama together."

McCain acknowledged that he and Palin disagree on some issues, but said it was "because we are both mavericks."

OH ok, I get it now, they've changed from pigs with lipstick to horse's asses. And the one horse has left the reservation while the other can't limp fast enough to keep up.
