Conservatives Losing Confidence in McCain?

It seems as though some conservatives have lost hope and faith in John McCain. David Broder, a fairly conservative columnist at the Washington Post is pretty much endorsing Barack Obama, by pointing out that even many Republicans find Obama's leadership on the economy more credible than McCain's.

I was struck by the survey of economists reported in the current issue of
the Economist, the London newsmagazine that covers America so well. It found much greater confidence in the economic views and advisers of Obama than McCain. The 142 respondents included far more Democrats than Republicans. But even among Republicans, the Obama team was rated superior -- and among the unaffiliated, the choice was overwhelming. WaPost

And George Will said a few weeks ago that:

Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential
candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too
And it's not Barack Obama. WaPost

They're referring to McCain as "childish" and "untethered".

McPalin's dropping like a rock.
So he goes to the smear tactics.
Those don't work and make the supporters look like a bigot brigade.
So now he's trying to tone it down before the debate, but it's cost him the Free Republic vote.

Soon, he won't even have the stupid vote.
