    Obama loses ground among Dems, women, Catholics & even younger voters


    UTICA, New York – As Russian tanks rolled into the Republic of Georgia and the presidential candidates met over the weekend in the first joint issues forum of the fall campaign, the latest polling includes drama almost as compelling - Republican John McCain has taken a five-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama in the race for President, the latest Reuters/Zogby telephone survey shows.

    McCain leads Obama by a 46% to 41% margin.


    And McCain not only enjoys a five-point edge in a two-way race against Obama, but also in a four-way contest including liberal independent candidate Ralph Nader and Libertarian Bob Barr, the poll reveals. In the four-way contest, McCain wins 44% support, Obama 39%, Barr 3% and Nader 2%.

    My favorite caption of the day was at msnbc:

    "Poll: Republican seen as a stronger manager of the economy"

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26308429/

    If the country is ignorant enough to believe that, then we deserve what we will get during McCain's term as POTUS: more of the same.

    If Bob Barr actually wins 3% as this poll indicates that will be three times more than Ed Clark received in 1980 - the LP presidential highwater mark so far.
