IT'S TOO EARLY FOR POLLS TO MEAN MUCH...:

McCain Gains on Obama in New Poll: USA Today/ Gallup Poll Suggests Obama's Trip May Have Energized Voters for McCain (Jill Lawrence, 7/29/08, USA TODAY)

It also reflected a jump in support for the U.S. troop increase in Iraq and a country evenly divided between withdrawing troops with and without a timetable. McCain pushed for the extra troops, and Obama opposed them. Obama wants a timetable, and McCain doesn't.

Obama was ahead 47%-44% among registered voters, down from a 6-percentage point lead he had last month. McCain led 49%-45% among likely voters, reversing a 5-point Obama lead among that group. In both cases, the margin of error is +/—4 points.


...except for purposes of historical comparison. And this is the time of a campaign where a Northern liberal should be at his peak.
