According to the Gallup Daily Tracking poll, McCain and Obama are now tied at 44% each. Oh, and just another fun fact to throw out there for your consideration…Obama had previously had a 6 point lead. Yep, Obama dropped from a 6 point lead in just two days. Ouch. That’s got to sting.
This marks the third time in the last two weeks Obama and McCain have tied. But, why worry? I mean, it’s not like the convention is just days away, or that Obama still needs a VP. At least the Hillary threat is neutralized since her name won’t be in the nomination process. Yikes! What is happening to Obama’s well managed campaign?
The falling poll numbers are fairly easy to understand. While the conflict rages on between Russia and Georgia, voters don’t care to see a presumptive nominee spending the days playing golf and body surfing in Hawaii. Somewhere in Chicago, David Axlerod is crying into his pillow.
