Gallup through Wednesday – Obama 49%; McCain 41%

8 Points – nothing yet on Obama’s speech. Here’s the Gallup report.


  1. BrkfldDad says:

    Report says “Obama’s largest advantage at any point in the campaign was a 9-point lead recorded July 24-26, so as his party’s convention concludes, he is about as strongly positioned as he has been at any point this year.”

    This is all pre Obama speech, Palin announcement and RNC convention. At the end of next week, it’ll probably be neck and neck again. The disenfranchised Hillary supporters might now play a bigger than ever imagined role. Will be interesting to see where their polls numbers stand come September 5.

  2. Even Obama’s camp concedes results will likely be close again.
