1

With leaners
Obama – 46%
McCain – 46%

Without leaners
Obama – 44%
McCain – 42%

A very pronounced tightening today, with McCain quickly closing the gap.

Some demographic details…

  • McCain has 82% of Republicans and has an 11% lead with Independents…
  • Obama gets 76% of Democrats…
  • McCain takes voters over 65…
  • Obama takes voters under 30…
  • Voters 30-64 are split evenly among the two candidates…

So how sure are these votes?

Thirty-four percent (34%) of voters are certain they will vote for Obama and not change their mind before November. Another 34% are that certain about voting for McCain. That leaves 32% open to changing their mind before voting and creates a potential for either candidate to open a significant lead in the fall.

Folks, it’s anybody’s ball game…
