McCain Narrows Obama Lead to 3-5 Points in Daily Tracking Polls - 10/27/08

Barack Obama's lead over John McCain has now dropped under 3-points in the latest Investor's Business Daily (IBD/TIPP) Tracking Poll. Obama's lead stands at 47%-44.2%, or 2.8%. The lead had been 3.2% on Sunday, and 3.9% on Saturday.

After seesawing between 3.2 and 3.9 points over the weekend, Obama's lead
slipped to 2.8 Monday. Battleground also has Obama up 3, and other polls have
tightened, including Rasmussen, Zogby and Gallup to 5. Some polls show swings in
independents, but IBD/TIPP has them in a stable, 5-point range.

The Battleground Tracking Poll also has the race at 3-points today, 49%-46% in favor of Obama. Rasmussen, Gallup, and Zogby all put the race at a 5-point lead for Obama. That is a considerable improvement for McCain over 1-2 weeks ago, who trailed in most tracking polls by 7-11 points. Now the race appears to be a 3-5 point lead for Obama. If McCain can get that down to 1-3 points by the end of the week, we could be in for a really interesting final weekend to the campaign!
