    Gallup Daily: Obama 49%, McCain 40%

    Americans obviously were reassured by the great perfoprmance Obama put on for them on the world stage. He truely looked presidential. More Americans are now sure he represents something that will make America's image look better in the world.

    He represents something that will make America's image look better in the world ?

    What kind of double speak is that? Exactly WHAT does he represent and WHAT will he DO to make all our little foreign friends happier?

    July 26, 1988. Gallup Poll. Dukakis by 17.

    The point being, a poll this early on isn't worth the time it took to prepare it.

    Obama needs to keep his eye on the goal and not get distracted by meaningless numbers.

    How many times have the polls said one thing all along, and the Election results ended saying something totally different.

    Do not get to wrapped up in polls.

    They're useless to determine how the election is going to turn out, but they are useful because they show how it's going on right now.

    I'd have to guess that Obama only being up 9 right now does not bode well for his candidacy.

    You are the reason why Obama has already secured victory. When people notice that the only bashers of Obama are the extremist like yourself, they will sympathize with Barack and make him the new leader of the free world.

    Barack Obama '08!!!

    Give me a break. I'd have intuitively expect a 25 point lead based on the media hype surrounding his trip. If you think a 9 point lead is going to carry him through November, you're just flat-out dull.

    Wasn't Newsweek calling a 16 point lead just 3 or 4 weeks ago, while other polls had him only leading by 3 to 4 points?


    The polls will go up and down, the only poll that matters is the one in November.
