Look Who's Leading

This is statistically insignificant, but given that John McCain is supposed to suffer a landslide defeat of Mondale-ian proportions, it is worth nothing this poll:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows the race for the White House is tied with Barack Obama and John McCain each attracting 44% of the vote. However, when “leaners” are included, it’s McCain 47% and Obama 46%.

This is the first time McCain has enjoyed even a statistically insignificant advantage of any sort since Obama clinched the Democratic nomination on June 3 . . .

No one from the McCain campaign is going to start measuring drapes. They are well aware of the fact that the conditions favor a Democratic victory. But Barack Obama’s inability to make the sale complete is rapidly becoming an unshakably bad trait.
