Republican presidential candidate John McCain moved from being behind by 6 points among "likely" voters a month ago to a 4-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama among that group in the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll. McCain still trails slightly among the broader universe of "registered" voters. By both measures, the race is tight.
The Friday-Sunday poll, mostly conducted as Obama was returning from his much-publicized overseas trip and released just this hour, shows McCain now ahead 49%-45% among voters that Gallup believes are most likely to go to the polls in November. In late June, he was behind among likely voters, 50%-44%.
Senator John McCain
I saw this poll Monday and just waited to see how many of the main News Media would carry it. I mean every poll that Barack Obama is leading in, all the News Media report it. But not for poor John McCain. I need some of you to help me. Maybe I missed it or just can't find it, but this is not reported by the New York Times, Washington Post or the Los Angeles Times. Do you think that they are bias?
Now the Politico reported about McCain's jump in the polls among most likely to vote, but the title of the post read,
The campaign is all about Obama
Despite vulnerabilities that have kept the race closer in polls than most analysts expected — and McCain even jumped to a 4 percentage point lead among likely voters in a USA Today/Gallup Poll released Monday — Barack Obama dominates the race by virtually any other measure. He is dictating the agenda and soaking up news coverage as McCain and his team scramble to react.
Barack Obama dominates the race. Why, because the News Media is kissing his ass. Most analysts expected, with the News Media in his corner, to be up over 50 percent and now that John McCain is 4 percent ahead of Obama in likely voters, they don't want the public to know it.They will use the power of the media to help Obama win and McCain lose.
I have faith in the people of this great country. They will see through all the smoke and mirrors that the press is throwing at them. The new media, the internet and conservative radio, is growing. The old media, National newspapers and national television news is dying.
Have faith in the people of this country, just tell them the truth and let them make their own decision.
