Obama Down 4 Points– McCain Gains In Battleground States
NO BOUNCE FOR OBAMA–
Despite the wall to wall media coverage Obama dropped 4 points in the latest national poll released today.
FOX News reported:
The significant news coverage Barack Obama is receiving on his foreign trip has not translated into a bounce in his numbers, a just-released FOX News poll shows. Obama now holds the slimmest possible edge over John McCain, leading by just 41 percent – 40 percent in a head-to-head contest. In fact, Obama’s support is down slightly from his 45 percent – 41 percent advantage last month.
Meanwhile… John McCain has made it close in 4 battleground states.
The Washington Post reported:
Republican John McCain has quickly closed the gap between himself and Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama in several key battleground states even as the Arizona senator struggles to break through the wall-to-wall coverage of Obama’s trip to Europe and the Middle East this week.
McCain and Obama are in a statistical dead heat in Colorado, Michigan and Minnesota while the Illinois senator has a more comfortable double-digit edge in Wisconsin, according to polling conducted by Quinnipiac University for washingtonpost.com and the Wall Street Journal during the past week. Only in Colorado, however, does McCain hold a greater percentage of the vote share than Obama.
But, this couldn’t be possible…
The socialists love him in Berlin.
UPDATE: This news also won’t please the global citizen:
According to Rasumussen the poll also found that only 32% believe he will learn anything from his trip to Iraq, while 40% agree Obama already has his mind made up on Iraq.
The poll also shows 74% of Republicans and 60% of democrats agree it is not right for a candidate to make political statements contrary to government policy while in a war zone.
