How Tight Is It?How tight is the presidential race today? Three points separate the candidates:
These results, based on interviewing conducted Tuesday through Thursday, mark the first time since the Sept. 4-6 report that McCain does not have a statistically significant lead over Obama, and also reflect interviewing on Thursday that showed a very close race.This is proving to be one of the tightest races in recent memory. Sarah Palin has indeed energized the Republican base in a way that no one expected, and this election is turning out much differently than many thought it might. The Democrats thought it was just their turn and we would play dead and bow before the new Messiah.
Instead, the media has simply made cultural conservatives more angry, ignoring the obvious trend that the average voter has soured on Barack Obama.
