McCain Pulls Ahead or Breaks Even in 5 Swing States
Polling in five key battleground states shows John McCain and Barack Obama neck-and-neck with seven weeks left until Election Day.
McCain holds a slight advantage over Obama in Colorado, Florida, and Ohio, while the candidates are tied in Pennsylvania and Virginia. In only one state — Florida — does the gap between McCain and Obama exceed three percentage points in polls with a four-and-a-half percentage point margin of sampling error…
The biggest change is in Colorado, where McCain now leads by 48 percent to Obama’s 46 percent. Just a week ago, Obama had a three-point edge in this western state. The current results are similar to the Rasmussen Reports Colorado polling conducted in Aug., just before the Democratic convention.
