A recent Washington Post poll came out that had Barack Obama 9 points ahead of John McCain. Of course, when Democrats in the poll outnumbered Republicans by a 54 to 38 margin, the fact that Obama was ahead should have come as no surprise whatsoever.
Gallup, however, finds a tie. This, despite the belief that the focus on the economic crisis hurts McCain. I wouldn’t start measuring drapes for the Oval Office just yet if I was in the Obama campaign’s shoes.
