A new average of the most recent national polls suggests Sen. Barack Obama holds a 6-point lead over Sen. John McCain.

The CNN Poll of Polls, compiled Friday morning, indicates that 49 percent of Americans say Obama, D-Illinois, is their choice for president, with 43 percent backing McCain, R-Arizona. Eight percent of those questioned are undecided.

The previous edition, compiled Thursday, indicated Obama had an 8-point lead over McCain, 50-42 percent.

This edition of the CNN Poll of Polls averaged four surveys: an American Research Group poll conducted October 11-13; a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby survey taken October 13-16; a Gallup poll conducted October 13-15; and a Diageo/Hotline survey taken October 13-15.

And this is from CNN reports.... (Bet they hated to report this... wink2.gif )

BHO's poll figures have been quite stagnant. All the proclamations that the election is basically in the bag are proving to be premature. And don't let's forget the Bradley effect.

I guess all that "Spread the Wealth" talk has gotten people a little shaky?

I think in the last minute people are going to vote for McCain due to the lack of experience NO'Bama has.


I wish I could be as cool as you...and say the things you do

The same people using the same polls seem to come up with a completely different story when the electoral votes are considered...



Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Polls are worthless. They're media tools used to control people's votes.

Well so far the Democrats been winning the Polls in the past elections.

Gore won the polls
Kerry won the polls
And now Obama is winning the polls.

And at the end they would say the Republicans cheated....

I think November 4th will be a loooooooong night.

But I truly fear if it is a tie the powers that be will decide in B. Hussein Obama's favor rather than risk racial backlash. That will be the ultimate racism.

Gore should have won the polls. He won the popular vote so it only makes sense that he'd win in the polls. Bush beat Kerry in the popular vote though so in 2004 the polling was inaccurate.

The vice president decides if they tie 269 each. I'm just sure Dick Cheney is going to pick Barack Obama.

At this point of B. Hussein Obama was truly the far-and-away people's choice he'd be in a double-digit lead over McCain.

Depending on the poll (and time of day) he's only 3% to 6% ahead. That's pitiful if he truly is seen as the great hope and change!!

There's no way you can say a 3-6% lead is a mandate or resounding fate acompli` election. no.gif

To get a sense of fair polling you need to average the results of all the major polls.  Polls are only a guideline and anyone familiar with statistics knows it depends on where they poll, who they poll and the political atmosphere at the time the polls are taken.

this is more important than a national poll: the electoral college predictions:

mccain is in serious **** here, he's in danger of losing some red states.

Much like previous races; single digit percentages dont always have a bearing on electoral votes, hence the very specific stops for each candidate in states that could go either way.
