Day Four

Obama 45.2% McCain 41.6% Not Sure 13.2%

Day Five

Obama 45.9% McCain 40.6% Not Sure 13.5%


Obama maintained a 3-point lead over McCain going into their third and final debate. Among the early trends in our tracking poll is an increase in undecideds among respondents 65 and older. There are now almost as many sitting on the fence in this group as there are among independents, where the race is tight. McCain could also be doing better among conservatives and married women.

Q: If the 2008 election for U.S. president were held today and the following were candidates, for whom would you vote? Would you say Democrat Barack Obama or Republican John McCain?
