McCain Gains 4-Points on Obama in One Day in Latest Zogby Tracking Poll - 10/26/08

The Reuters/C-Span/Zogby Tracking Poll shows Sen. John McCain making a huge gain on Barack Obama yesterday, reducing a 9.5-point deficit to 5.3-points in a single day. Obama now leads McCain 49.4%-44.1%. If McCain can keep tightening the race and get within one or two points by the middle of next week, this race could get really interesting at the end!

Republican John McCain continues to gain on Democrat Barack Obama, reducing Obama’s lead to 5.3 points with just over a week to go before Election Day, the latest Reuters/C–SPAN/Zogby national daily tracking poll shows.

The race now stands at 49.4% to 44.1% in favor of Obama. Obama led McCain by 9.5 points in yesterday’s report.

“There is no question that this race continues to tighten and that McCain is finding his message again,” said Pollster John Zogby. “It is after all about the economy and that is how McCain tightened it up the last time. I have said over and over again, when he focuses on extraneous issues, he screws up. In today's single day of polling, it was 49% to 46% in favor of Obama. McCain has moved his own numbers each of the three days and Obama has gone down from 54% to 50% to 49%. I have alluded before to this strange, magnetic pull that brings Obama down to 48% or 49%, a danger zone for him. McCain's gains are among white voters, where he now leads by 12 points, and with men, where he again has a healthy lead. There is still a lot of campaign to go. A lot of campaign to go.
