    Zogby: McCain Takes the Lead

    The very latest poll numbers from John Zogby put John McCain squarely ahead of Barack Obama at 46 percent to 44 percent, respectively.


    McCain moved from three percentage points behind Obama to two points ahead of the democratic candidate in less than a week. One possible reason for the boost — McCain’s decision to forego politics as usual to focus on the current financial meltdown. The polling was conducted after McCain’s announcement that he would suspending his campaign.

    Independent voters played a key role in the latest figures: McCain now leads with independents by nine points, 43 percent to 34 percent.

    Wasn't Zogby the poll that had Kerry in the lead by 7 before the 2004 election??

    Yep. But do you think they'll talk about that or the exit polls?

    Doubt it.

    If McCain wins Friday's debate (yes, I think there'll be a debate) then likely McCain wins the election. Historically the winner of the first debate pulls ahead and wins the election. That being said anything is possible and that is certainly not where the Democrats or Obama thought this would be with 40 days to go - let alone sitting at a table with President Bush instead of out campaigning.

    I hate to say this, but any "lead" under 3 is a tie.

    Do you think it's where someone who's been in govenment for 30 years thought it would be???

    I'm figuring both of them knew that the country is divided in half... and that there's not a huge pool of voters to draw from. Barring something unforeseen, that split isn't going to change any time soon. I suspect there has to actually be a bi-partisan thinking president before that ever happens again.

    Might be that hiring karl rove and the head swiftboater and picking palin backfired on mccain who really did have a shot at crossover votes.

    I'm getting a bit tired of several Right wingers on this board.

    Barack Obama has poll lead: It's nothing! A fluke! The polls are wrong! It's because he's black! He's a muslim commie baby soul eater!

    John McCain has poll lead: Johnny Mac's the man! The polls are right! Barack Obama is a muslim commie baby soul eater! McCain is a maverick and will win this! Obama is done!

    Notice the amount of hypocrisy by some of the Right Wingers on this board when it comes to polls? :eusa_whistle:
