Worried about Obama’s Poll Numbers?


In the latest NBC/WSJ poll, Obama leads McCain by six points (47%-41%) among registered voters. While polls can’t accurately gauge an election five months out — after all, so much can still happen — it’s worth putting Obama’s lead into this perspective: Bush never trailed Kerry in the 2004 NBC/WSJ polls that measured registered voters’ preference for Bush, Kerry, and Nader. And Bush’s lead was never bigger than four points.

A lot can still happen, but I feel confident that Barack Obama will be our next president.

  1. I believe that there is a momentum in America for change and that Obama represents that change better than McCain.

  2. I’m still waiting for the “single issue that blinds everyone into forgetting about what’s important” republican strategy to be invoked. How Obama handles that will determine a lot.
