For a while I didn't think Obama could win because of his lack of experience and the fact that I don't think he really stands for anything except getting elected. Then the economy got so bad that my assumption was that U.S. voters were going to vote for change no matter what. September consumer confidence posted its biggest monthly decline ever. It's bad and everyone knows it. Now?
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Barack Obama holds a 4-point lead over Republican John McCain, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Saturday.
Obama leads McCain by 48 to 44 percent among likely voters in the four-day tracking poll, which has a margin of error of 2.9 points Pollster John Zogby said that while Obama's overall lead had remained relatively stable between 2 and 6 points in the 12 days since the poll started, the latest figures showed a bump for McCain following Wednesday's final presidential debate. "Today was the first full sample post-debate and there's a clear indication that McCain is moving up," Zogby said.
