    ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) -- On the eve of the Republican convention, a new national poll suggests the race for the White House remains even.

    CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Sunday night shows the Obama-Biden ticket leading the McCain-Palin ticket by one point, 49 percent to 48 percent, with the statistical margin of error.

    The survey was conducted Friday through Sunday, after both the conclusion of the Democratic convention and Sen. John McCain's selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.

    A previous CNN poll, taken just one week earlier, suggested the race between McCain, R-Arizona, and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, was tied at 47 percent each.

    "The convention and particularly Obama's speech seems to be well-received. And the selection of Sarah Palin as the GOP running mate, also seems to be well-received. So why is the race still a virtual tie? Probably because the two events created equal and opposite bounces assuming that either one created a bounce at all," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

    Bill Clinton got the party faithful back on board but they're slowly getting back off after being reminded that Obama is no Bill Clinton.

    And to the braindead followers of the Bush bust it wasn't that great. They can only hear the words from the burning Bush. LOL

    What's funny about the Gallup poll Jillian was squaking about (the one that has Obama/Biden up 6) is the sampling.

    40% Dem

    30% Repub

    27% Unaffiliated

    What I love is when Obama is up, Polls are the greatest thing since sliced bread and prove he will win, when he is down in the polls, they mean nothing and are worthless.
