    WASHINGTON - In a sharp turnaround, Republican John McCain has opened a 5-point lead on Democrat Barack Obama in the U.S. presidential race and is seen as a stronger manager of the economy, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

    McCain leads Obama among likely U.S. voters by 46 percent to 41 percent, wiping out Obama's solid 7-point advantage in July and taking his first lead in the monthly Reuters/Zogby poll.

    This is why I don't pay attention to the polls. From what I can tell the MSM uses them as an eye catching headline but a person only needs to read the bleak economic news to figure out that the Republicans aren't a great choice if you are concerned about our economy. Economics isn't a great selling point for McCain.

    This is insane! I'm seriously going to give up politics if McCain wins. The American people, military, middle class, poor, gays, muslims, jews, catholics, born agains, women, all of you deserve what happens if you elect John McCain into office.

    But it isn't our fault. I really won't trust the election results and I sure don't trust this survey. It has to be bullshit.

    More people voted at the Democratic primaries. Obama is raising more money. More people rally for Obama. The entire world prefers him.

    America deserves what we get if McCain wins. Kids, get ready for the draft. And don't ask me to feel sorry for the quagmire you get put in.

    The military and oil company employees have all given more to OBama.

    McCain doesn't have any economic experience. He admitted he is a retard when it comes to that. Just look at the economy now. Is it good? Well it is to John McCain.

    Gook luck America. I'm moving.

    I read something awhile back that made the case that when economic times are good minorities are more likely to be voted in. When times are tough, the ruling class is usually voted in.

    How could you guys think Obama would be better at it than McCain? neither guy is strong on economics.

    I personally think Obama's Tax, and Spending Policies would be detrimental to the Economy, McCain's I think would be less detrimental. All things are relative you know.

    Tax and spend. Borrow and spend.

    Is there a difference?

    I'd rather see tax and spend, myself.

    I meant the 2 on their own actually Ravi.

    I believe Obama's Tax polices will be detrimental to the Economy. Which will in turn actually lower Revenues to the FED.

    At the same time I think his spending polices will also fuel the Deficits and Debt.

    Both things I believe will be bad for the Economy.

    I have never been an advocate of Barrow and spend. I want to see a balanced Budget, I simply do not See Obama's Ideas leading to one.
