Poll: McCain leads Obama on LI (RICK BRAND AND JAMES T. MADORE, September 15, 2008, Newsday)

Republican Sen. John McCain got an 8-point bounce on Long Island after the Republican convention, taking a narrow 44 to 39 percent lead over Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, according to the latest Dowling Polling Institute data.

Statewide, McCain also made gains, shrinking Obama's lead in heavily Democratic New York, according to a new Siena Research Institute poll. Obama led 46 percent to 41 percent, down from an 8-point edge last month and an 18-point bulge in June. With the 3.9-percentage-point margin of error, the race is a statistical dead heat.
