Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby Poll: Is McCain Making a Move?

Obama 49.1%, McCain 44.1%

UTICA, New York—Republican John McCain made a small gain against Democrat Barack Obama and has pulled back within the margin of error, now trailing Obama by five points, 49.1% to 44.1%, the latest Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby daily tracking telephone poll shows.
Almost two days worth of the polling—or about half of the current sample in the three-day rolling poll of likely voters nationwide, was conducted after Obama's 30-minute commercial aired Wednesday evening. There is no evidence it helped him, as he has dropped 1.1 points in the last two days, while McCain has gained 0.8 points during the same period.
Pollster John Zogby: "Is McCain making a move? The three-day average holds steady, but McCain outpolled Obama today, 48% to 47%. He is beginning to cut into Obama's lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all. "Obama's lead among women declined, and it looks like it is occurring because McCain is solidifying the support of conservative women, which is something we saw last time McCain picked up in the polls. If McCain has a good day tomorrow, we will eliminate Obama's good day three days ago, and we could really see some tightening in this rolling average. But for now, hold on."

Apparently I am missing a point. How does an analysis of secular politics in the USA apply to a section called "Bible Chat"?

That's a good point. Although from a Christian viewpoint, I have been extremely disappointed in the Republican Party. I've read some of the positions of the quite a few current and former Presidential candidates, and I've pretty much decided that the only one who I could give my full support to would be Alan Keyes. Our country needs him or someone like him who isn't afraid to say that our country has moral problems, who isn't afraid to say that the courts were wrong when they took prayer out of our schools, and who isn't afraid to stand up for the rights of all the unborn without all these conditions put on to placate the "pro-choice" crowd (exceptions in the cases of rape, etc. or that harvesting and killing embryos for stem cell research is OK, etc.).

Well, Zogby flip-flopped back today to show a big lead in the polls for Obama again.

Because this election could dynamically effect how the Government will effect freedom of speech, consequently impacting on the proliferation of the preached word of God in this Country. ...which can impact certain other Christian issues such as freedom of religion, abortion, etc...

I wish there was another Regan out there.
