    Gallup in paticular is down to only a 1 point lead, while USA todays still has McCain up by 4.

    Note USA today polled likely voters, and not just registered ones. Likely voters takes into account peoples past histories of Voting, Wether or not they actually know where their polling place is, and several other factors deemed to show they are likely to actually vote.

    Obama's lead just keeps shrinking.

    Gallup has it as a dead tie now. USA today still have McCain up by 4.

    RCP average of 10 polls now have Obama up by only 2.6

    Obama has lost .01 of a point each day for 4 days now.

    From CBS News.....

    On the Republican side, the majority of speculation has increasingly been confined to two men: Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. On the campaign trail, McCain has been talking up his longtime friend Pawlenty, and the Minnesotan recently paid a visit to the presumptive Republican nominee's national campaign headquarters in Virginia. Meanwhile, Romney remains in a strong position, in part due to recent polling that shows he could very well put Michigan in the Republican column for the first time since 1988.

    Do you think McCain wants to win?
