(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.
"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."

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. State-by-state polling
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.
Wow! I am watching my recording!He wish, he would not be there! McBush appeared angry,extremely combative, tired and fed up with all of this . It seems like PALLIN with PALIN did not help him much any ways!
If John McCain really thinks his campaign is "doing fine" it suggests one of four things:
1. He knows he is losing but thinks the voters will split their votes and try to preserve two party government somehow.
2. He is playing for an electoral miracle, or a judicial one.
3. He is experiencing the effects of a true mental decline.
4. He needs to be drug tested.
