Gallup: Obama Leads By 5

Gallup: Obama Leads By 5


For the first time in a while, the daily polls from Rasmussen and Gallup show the exact same numbers…

The details…

Obama previously led McCain by a statistically significant margin — peaking at seven points — right after Hillary Clinton suspended her campaign for the Democratic nomination in early June. However, this lasted for only three days — a mini-bounce — after which the margin narrowed to three points, and more recently to an exact tie, before expanding in Sunday’s report to a 4-point lead for Obama.

While the race has been consistently competitive for most of the past two months, McCain has not led Obama by a significant margin since early May.
