Barack Obama tried to resuscitate his campaign yesterday by mounting the most personal attack yet on John McCain, with an advert accusing the self-styled man of integrity and former Vietnam war hero of fighting a dishonourable and dishonest election campaign.

The ad marked the start of what was billed as a Democratic fightback after a fortnight in which the Republicans dominated the news agenda and cut into and, in some instances, overtook Obama’s lead in the polls.

The stakes were underlined in a poll yesterday showing that McCain was leading Obama in Ohio – the state that decided the 2004 election. The Suffolk University poll put McCain on 46% compared with 42% for Obama. Voters also said they trusted McCain more than Obama.  Source Article
