MCCAIN NOW LEADS OBAMA:
This is the first time McCain has enjoyed even a statistically insignificant advantage of any sort since Obama clinched the Democratic nomination on June 3 (see recent daily results). . . . A week ago today, Obama had a three-percentage point lead and the candidates were even among unaffiliated voters. Today, McCain leads 52% to 37% among unaffiliateds.
McCain is currently viewed favorably by 55% of the nationâ€™s voters, Obama by 51%. That is the lowest rating for Obama since he wrapped up the nomination.
You can headline it “No Mo for B.O.” if you want to be cute. Given the adulatory media coverage to date, this suggests significant weakness on Obama’s part. (Via JWF).
