Zogby: Obama Lead Down To Four

I'm not normally a "poll hawk" but with one week to go these could actually mean something.

Democrat Barack Obama has a 4-point national lead over Republican John McCain as they head into the final week of the presidential campaign, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Tuesday.

Obama leads McCain by 49 percent to 45 percent among likely voters in the three-day national tracking poll, a slight dip from his 5-point advantage on Monday. The telephone poll has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.

...

McCain, a veteran Arizona senator, has sliced Obama's 12-point advantage by more than half in the last five days but he has not been able to break through the 45 percent support mark.

Probably more significant is Obama slipping under the 50 percent mark.

The real key will be to see if this signals movement in important state battles. That probably wouldn't be seen until later in the week.

Stay tuned.

I'm not much for polls, either.

Obviously, Nov. 7th is the only one that counts.

Although I can't help but wonder how out of kilter these poll results are due to the organized criminal activity of ACORN, and their hundreds of thousands of fraudulent voter registrations.

I would think that those 'acorn registered democrats' can't help but skew the results.

And ain't it funny how Obama hasn't closed the deal, yet?

I guess Nov. 7 will tell the tale.

You mean the 4th, right? (I'd hate to see you miss election day.)

4th. 7th.

I'll just flash my acorn card.

It's r-a-a-acist to limit voting to one day a week in Nov., ya know.

That the Constitution for you...just another example of the man keeping us down.
