Joe the Plumber conceded Monday night that Republican John McCain has a slim chance of defeating Democrat Barack Obama in the race for the White House.

Joe Wurzelbacher, the unemployed Ohio plumber who was thrust into the national spotlight in late September after quizzing Mr. Obama about his tax policy, made his prediction on the upcoming presidential election while be interviewed on Inside the Beltway Radio (www.washingtontimes.com).

“Your common sense, again, just to reiterate, is it’s going to be a tough one if John McCain’s going to pull it out tomorrow?” the show’s host, John McCaslin, asked Mr. Wurzelbacher.

“Most definitely,” he replied.

Earlier, the plumber stated: “Truthfully, honestly, I do believe John McCain can pull it out, but it’s going to be darn tight.”
