AP Poll has it now tied..

Nothing like a 14 point swing in the polls on a single day, or the fact that the Zogby poll has moved 11 points in four days. Still, I would like to see more like this please: (From the NRO Campaign Spot)

There’s That ‘McCain Pulls Even’ Poll

Obi Wan, yesterday:

“Believe me, there is someone in the Obama campaign who is deathly afraid of the ‘McCain pulls even or goes ahead’ poll.”

Obi Wan had said that he felt the last debate had gone well for McCain, with “Joe the Plumber” finally illustrating the economic differences between the candidates, and illustrating that Obama would try to tax and spend his way out of a recession…

AP, not too long ago:

The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.

The poll, which found Obama at 44 percent and McCain at 43 percent, supports what some Republicans and Democrats privately have said in recent days: that the race narrowed after the third debate as GOP-leaning voters drifted home to their party and McCain’s “Joe the plumber” analogy struck a chord.

Three weeks ago, an AP-GfK survey found that Obama had surged to a seven-point lead over McCain, lifted by voters who thought the Democrat was better suited to lead the nation through its sudden economic crisis.
