McCain’s Evangelical Problem
After months of speeches and debates, and nearly $1 billion in total campaign spending to date, the presidential race is a dead heat.

A head-to-head showdown between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama is now too close to call — 45.9 percent to 44.6 percent — based on an averaging of national polls by realclearpolitics.com. A head-to-head showdown between McCain and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is also razor-thin, 46 percent to 45.7 percent.

Now, a poll of likely Christian voters offers evidence of why the McCain campaign is struggling to gain real traction and a lead that can last. The poll was conducted among 1,000 likely Christian voters early last week, on behalf of November Communications, Inc., the company I founded in 2000. McLaughlin & Associates, a leading polling firm for many Republican candidates, but unaffiliated in the current presidential campaign, conducted the survey.

1. More than just evangelicals. McCain is weak with many components of the Republican base.

2. MCain changes positions so fast its hard for them to get behind him
They line up and he's moved. Only thing that is constant is his name and he is willing to change that if someone asks. Oh and Joe Lieberman. Joe is always there.
