Obama leads McCain 47-41 in new MSNBC poll. No change.
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 05:32 PM by Drunken Irishman
51% say they are focused on Obama and not McCain.

Obama will probably see a bump later this week into next week.

But he hasn't lost support.

1. At least it's not a drop
And 6 points is a fairly healthy lead, IMO. How are they spinning it?

4. Yup, which is good.
We'll start seeing the size of the bump by tomorrow or Friday.

9. Polls take several days to collect.
This poll reported today would have been collected several days ago, and the ones being collected this week will be reported next week.

7. well, that's anti- climatic.
Are they talking about it on Race to the White House? Anyone? I'm sure if they are, it's all "WHY SO CLOSE???"

11. Some fathead is talking about Obama not getting a bump.
But the moron doesn't know that it takes a few days before the bump sets in. You've got to wait at least a couple of more days before stating such a thing.

18. If Obama were leading by 15, they'd be saying "Is Obama peaking too soon?"

20. Or that it does not matter because polls at this point don't matter. Then they would talk about
where Dukakis was at this point.

13. I don't understand how McCain isn't in the 30s or 20s where the Bushitler SS fans live. nt

14. heh...I'm watching the Charlie Gibson interview with Obama right now.
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 05:42 PM by ErinBerin84
Still a dick. "Coming up...an interview with John McCain...about how Obama should know better and behave differently."

McCain is so obsessed with Obama.

16. Yup! I will never understand why Obama granted an interview to him after the way they
did him at the debate. I would have granted one to every network except ABC. I mean it is not like they do positive stories on him anyway. I will never understand why he agreed to sit down with Charlie G. Hell would freeze over first before I agreed to it.

17. I really wonder what the hell is the matter with people...
who still support McCain.

Such an enormous number of people have been so brainwashed that they will NEVER be swayed to vote for Barack, no matter how much better he proves himself to be. It's just sad.

19. How are they getting that economy number?
They keep saying 55% think Obama would be better vs 52% for McCain? I'm not a math wizard but 55 and 52 do not equal 100. Wonder what the exact question was?
