  • McCain Takes Lead in Polls

    http://news.aol.com/elections/articl...405x1200534753


    (Sept. 7) - John McCain has overtaken Barack Obama in the Gallup daily tracking poll and has his highest level of support in that poll since early May.
    McCain leads Obama 48 percent to 45 percent among registered voters, by Gallup’s measure. McCain has so far earned the same convention bounce as Obama, though at a more rapid pace.
    Not over until it's over.

      Polls are useless until after the election....

      Besides, once the "Palin" high dies down, we'll see where she stands on......issues.

        Polls can be made to say whatever you want them to say.

        I'll wait until all the votes are tallied.

            According to Rasmussen:

            In the first national polling results based entirely on interviews conducted after Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech, Barack Obama gets 46% of the vote and so does John McCain. When "leaners" are included, it’s all even at 48%.

            According to Reuters/Zogby:

            The latest Zogby International poll shows that John McCain and Sarah Palin can count on more support than their opponents Barack Obama and Joe Biden at this point in time.

            49.7% of those asked favor McCain-Palin over Obama-Biden (45.9%). Shortly after McCain announced his choice, only 47.1% said they supported the Republican ticket. This means that support for the two has increased in the last two weeks or so by two percentage points.

            When the running mates are not taken into consideration, McCain’s lead is less significant: 48.8% vs. 45.7%.

              Nice. What about the 'chads' and the 'missing and/or misplaced votes' factor??

                All I can say is I hope that the percentage with McCain/Palin being ahead carry's straight into the oval office. We can only hope and pray that such a PROVEN patriot and defender of our Country and Constitution would take that office and lead our country into the future!!

                    Hmmm. A Fox poll says they are neck & neck.

                    A Gallup Poll:

                    Latest Gallup Poll: Obama's support firms up
                    By Yael T. Abouhalkah, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist
                    America's "swing" voters are turning to support Barack Obama at a faster clip than to John McCain, according to the latest Gallup Poll. Overall, Obama still leads McCain by a 49-43 margin.

                    But the big news is that support for the Democratic nominee is firming up.
                    Gallup says the registered voters saying they "are certain to vote for Obama" went up 6 percentage points -- from 36 percent before the Democratic convention to 42 percent after it.

                      The polls are all over and will be until the end. They're aren't much more than guesses anyhow. It's encouraging to see, but it's not done yet.
                      For every one hundred men you send us,
                      Ten should not even be here.
                      Eighty are nothing but targets.
                      Nine of them are real fighters;
                      We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
                      Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
                      And he will bring the others back.

                          This doesn't take into effect the repubs that are gonna vote for Obama but say they're voting McCain and the dems that are going to vote for McCain and not obama.

                          There are plenty on both sides that are going to say they're sticking with the party lines to "save face" but will vote differently. Which is why I feel the exit polls are not going to match to the actual numbers and will have the losers crying foul, once again....

                            Wasn't Kerry leading in the polls up until the election?

                            I don't give polls any credibility.
                            Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we might as well dance.

                              You should reconsider rolling your eyes at a man like McCain. He gave a lot for you, Stormy. What have you given your countrymen that can equal his sacrifice?

                              It will be McCain and Palin and you will thank God for it when we are next threatened. And that day will come - probably sooner than any of us realize.
