Gallup: Obama Up By 10
Obama loses one today, and McCain maintains a steady and paltry 41% of the electorate. How he’ll catch up is anybody’s guess, and the chances get slimmer with each passing day.
The major news of the day is the economic crisis and its dramatic effect on the world’s financial markets, which to some degree drowns out the typical campaign back and forth that characterizes the presidential race at this point.
About half of Americans indicate in Gallup’s economic tracking measures that they personally had worried about money the day before they were interviewed, underscoring the major impact the economy is having on Americans’ lives and the degree to which their presidential choice may be filtered through the prism of economic angst.
