Obama Lead Back Up to 5-Points in Zogby Tracking Poll - 10/29/08

The Reuters/C-Span/Zogby Tracking Poll has Barack Obama moving back out to a 5-point lead with just six days remaining in the Presidential race:

Democrat Barack Obama has a steady 5-point national lead over Republican John
McCain with six days left in the grueling race for the White House, according to
a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

Obama leads McCain by
49 percent to 44 percent among likely voters in the three-day national tracking
poll, inching up from his 4-point advantage on Tuesday. The telephone poll has a
margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.

"The daily numbers were
essentially unchanged from yesterday, with just a slight improvement for Obama,"
pollster John Zogby said. "The race is frozen in place for now."

The
Illinois senator still holds a solid lead with several crucial blocs of swing
voters -- he is ahead by 15 points among independents, 10 points among women, 8
points among Catholics and 5 points among voters above the age 65.

The
race is essentially tied among men and McCain moved into a slight 2-point lead
among self-described blue-collar workers as the two candidates push toward next
week's vote.

"Obama is holding steady," Zogby said.

Obama has
held a lead of between two and 12 points every day since the tracking poll began
three weeks ago. McCain, an Arizona senator, has not been able to push his
support above 45 percent in that time, while Obama reached a high mark of 52
percent a week ago before drifting back.

About two percent of voters
remain undecided in the race, which still has time for some last-minute shifts.

The 5-point margin for Obama is the same lead then-Texas Gov. George W.
Bush held in the tracking poll over Democrat Al Gore with six days left in the
2000 race. Gore closed fast and narrowly won the popular vote, but Bush won the
Electoral College and the presidency after a disputed Florida recount.

With six days to go in the 2004 race, Bush led Democratic challenger
John Kerry by one point before winning re-election by 3 points.

Well here's the bright side, maybe all the liberal illuminati Obama supporters will think they got this in the bag and not show up on election day and then McCain will get the win!
