Ruh-Roh… McCain Closing On Obama–Race "Functionally" Tied
Republican presidential candidate John McCains pollster said Tuesday that the Arizona senator has been closing in the last week, adding that the election might be too close to call by Election Day.
GOP pollster Bill McInturff said in a memo released by the McCain campaign that the Arizona senator has made impressive strides over the last week of tracking. He added that the race against Democrat Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) in both red and blue states is closer than is currently perceived.
Despite widespread polling to the contrary, McInturff wrote that the campaign is functionally tied across the battleground states with our numbers improving sharply over the last four tracks.
The pollster said that the number the campaign is watching is Sen. Obamas level of support and the margin difference between the two candidates.
As other public polls begin to show Sen. Obama dropping below 50 percent and the margin over McCain beginning to approach margin of error with a week left, all signs say we are headed to an election that may easily be too close to call by next Tuesday, he said.
The Gallup Poll today had a two point race.
