McCain – 49%
Obama – 46%
Is this an outlier? Well, FiveThirtyEight gives the poll a weight of 0.89, and that means it’s not nearly as reliable as other polls like Gallup’s daily, which carries a weight of 1.76.
Still…any poll numbers that show a lead this small for McCain at this point in the race has to be cause for concern. And with their resources dwindling, Obama may be able to make a final push that could put him over the top.
Also, let’s remember that Obama beat Hillary by a massive 35 point spread (66% to 31%) in the primaries, so he enjoys an extremely large base of support in the Peach State.
