McCain Bounces Ahead of Obama
John McCain has captured the lead from Barack Obama, according to Gallup’s daily tracking poll. The data, which include two days of post-convention rumination, show McCain leading 48 percent to 45 percent. Rasmussen has the two candidates dead even.
Update: Other polls are starting to roll in with more bad news for Obama. A USA Today-Gallup poll shows McCain with a double-digit lead.
WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO…
The latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update shows John McCain moving ahead of Barack Obama, 48% to 45%, when registered voters are asked for whom they would vote if the presidential election were held today.
These results are based on Sept. 4-6 interviewing, and include two full days of polling after the conclusion of the Republican National Convention last Thursday night. McCain has outpolled Obama on both Friday and Saturday, and is receiving a convention bounce just as Obama did last week.
