Zogby’s Got Some Really Troubling Poll Numbers Out If You’re An Obama Fan — Which Explains Why I Can’t Find Any Comment On Them From the MSM
Posted by WLS:
ATV/Zogby new poll out today measures the changes in the electorate since it did its first McCain v. Obama matchup back in July. Some very interesting changes have taken place now that Obama is in a real shooting match with someone who disagrees with him on significant issues for the first time in his political career. Keep in mind the numerous flip-flops Obama has committed in his “move to the center” following Hillary’s surrender in mid-June:
1,011 likely voters conducted July 31-Aug. 1 finds Republican Sen. John McCain taking a razor-thin 42%-41% lead over Democrat Sen. Barack Obama …. a notable turn-around from the Reuters/Zogby poll of July 7-9 that showed Obama ahead, 46%-36%
McCain gained 20% and Obama lost 16% among voters ages 18-29. Obama still leads that group, 49%-38%.
Among women, McCain closed 10 points on Obama, who still leads by a 43%-38% margin.
Obama has lost what was an 11% lead among Independents. He and McCain are now tied.
Obama had some slippage among Democrats, dropping from 83% to 74%.
Obama’s support among single voters dropped by 19%, and he now leads McCain, 51%-37%
By region, McCain’s greatest gains came in the Central U.S. and in the West, home to several key battleground states. What was a narrow Obama lead in the Central U.S. is now a 45%-36% McCain edge. In the West, Obama’s 15% lead is gone, and McCain is now ahead, 43%-40%.
Catholics, who are always a critical voting bloc, favored Obama by 11% in mid-July. Now, they favor McCain by 15%.
Now you know why Obama has been flopping around like a lip-hooked bass the last 10 days. Lots of people losing sleep on Team Obama.
Does anyone in Denver smell something burning?
I think its the Clinton campaign phone lines calling superdelegates.
