    Obama takes 7-point lead on McCain | Politics | Reuters

    On Sunday, McCain kept mentioning Zogby.

    I wonder if he regrets doing that now.

    Honestly, Zogby is still all over the place. There is absolutely no consistency to his polls. But, to be fair, I haven't seen any consistency in any of the polls except Pew which has given Obama a 15 point lead for the past month. Even Rasmussen has been all over the map as of late.

    I also am starting to see another trend.

    Whenever Drudge posts a poll on his website (i.e. SHOCK poll), that poll usually rebounds for Obama in the next couple of days.

    I wonder...

    Like I showed you in another thread polls are highly unreliable. All you have to do is look to the primaries....

    The consistency is that Obama is winning... whether it's by 3 or 13, Obama is winning.

    Word.

    Regardless of what they say, they are looking at these polls and the electoral map and the McCain supporters are quaking in their boots.

    If the polls were reversed there would be a whole lot of nonbelievers who would suddenly find Jesus ...

    He isn't winning anything yet, they don't start certifying votes until November 4th....

    Besides the fact he was "winning" in a lot of polls in different primary contests and wound up losing the primary contests by a pretty large margin.

    This is how bad its gotten for McCain and his failure of a campaign, Arizona according to recent polls is now a tossup.

    Sen. John McCain's once-comfortable lead in Arizona has all but evaporated, according to a new poll that has the underdog Republican presidential candidate struggling in his own backyard.

    With less than a week until Election Day, McCain is leading his Democratic rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, by 2 points, 46 to 44, down from a 7-point lead a month ago and a double-digit lead this summer, according to a poll from Arizona State University.

    Factor in the 3-percentage point margin of error, and a race that was once a nearly sure thing for McCain is now a toss-up, pollsters say.
