    PRINCETON, NJ -- 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.
    Tomorrow's report will be the first in which all interviews were conducted after the conclusion of the convention. Gallup measures convention bounces by comparing candidate support in the last poll done entirely before a party's presidential nominating convention begins with the first polling conducted entirely after its conclusion.
    McCain's 48% share of the vote ties for his largest since Gallup tracking began in early March. He registered the same level of support in early May. This is also McCain's largest advantage over Obama since early May, when he led by as much as six percentage points. Obama has led McCain for most of the campaign, and for nearly all of the time since clinching the Democratic nomination in early June.

    McCain is getting a huge bounce from his convention...

    The only question is will he hold on to the bounce, or will it diminish within a week?

    I think the more the issues become the focus of this election ..... the worse it will be for Obama.

    Most likely will see it plateau more or less until the debates. I have little faith in the polls since polls can be manipulated in the questioning to get what you want in results.

    here is a link to the 2004 cnn polls though to give you an idea where the country fell when it came to the presidential election, the interesting ones are about half way down that ask respondents what is the most important quality in a president.

    The political equivalent of a dead-cat bounce?

    It won't last, but the dead cat bounce comment was kinda weird.

    It will be a dead heat going into the debates, the debates will likely provide the last "bounce" for either side and if any "October Surprise" looms ahead that might do one last surge for one candidate.

    Ultimately this will come down to election night, a close contest is almost certain.

    Yes when Obama was leading the polls meant nothing. When McCain is leading 'the more the issues become the focus of this electon...the worse it will be for Obama'. Also 'well Kerry was leading the polls in 04 and look who won' is another phrase uttered dealing with these polls when Obama is leading.

    Gallup Daily Poll Gives McCain Largest Margin Since May Over Obama
    by FOXNews.com
    Sunday, September 7, 2008


    John McCain has taken a slight lead over Barack Obama, 48-45 percent, according to the latest Gallup Daily Tracking poll out Sunday. It is the largest advantage for McCain, though still within the 2-point margin of error, since May.

    The 48 percent also registers the largest raw number McCain has received in the poll since Gallup started its daily tracking of the two presidential candidates in March. McCain matched that number in May.

    The poll of 2,765 registered voters was taken Sept. 4-6, and includes surveys done on the last day of the Republican convention. It also marks the expected bounce for the Republican coming immediately out of the convention. Obama experienced a similar bounce following the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention in Denver the week before. At that time, he led McCain 49-43 percent.

    The latest USAToday poll has McCain leading 50%-46% among registered voters, and leading 54%-44% among likely voters.

    Zogby also has McCain leading 50%-46%.

    That was McCain's problem 2 weeks ago... He didn't have the enthusiasm of Republicans. Now, with the selection of Palin, he does.
