Obama Leads McCain 52% to 46% in Campaign's Final Days McCain Narrows Gap
Barack Obama holds a significant lead over John McCain in the final days of Campaign 2008. The Pew Research Centers final pre-election poll of 2,587 likely voters, conducted Oct. 29-Nov. 1, finds 49% supporting or leaning to Obama, compared with 42% for McCain; minor party candidates draw 2%, and 7% are undecided.

PEW is a bullsh*t poll if there ever was one. And there are.
The PEW poll stinks to low hell.
The PEW poll? Actually, the name says it all.
A 9% swing in less than a week. What a joke this polling outfit is. People don’t change their minds like that. They also project undecideds to break evenly. Right.
stinks to high heaven.
Rasmussen, although I think he oversamples Dems, has been holding much more steady.
I’ve attended more than a few dinners at my mother-in-law’s place with two bigshots from Pew. The hatred of everything conservative and Republican oozing from those two is amazing. Pew makes the NYT look unbased and fair.
Too much movement in that poll to give it any credibility.
I know it’s a gap, but nevertheless, I said two weeks ago that late last week ALL of these pollsters would have to get their numbers in line for the final. Evidently, Gallup decided to believer their own crap, but when PEW moves this fast this far, it tells us something is afoot.
Yeah, McCain “gained” 9 points in one week! Whatever Senor Pew!
a) McCain was never behind
b) Pew should just buy a condo in Libya and retire there
Just about anywhere you look, even in the “cooked” polls McCain has been surging for well over a week.
There is no stopping a glacier, or a landslide.
The Madeline Albright pollsters want a little credibility.
These little pissants at PEW never cease to amaze. Still trying to dissuade conservatives from voting, yet throwing us a “bone” by shifting the numbers in order to make themselves look more credible.
The only reason these guys stay in business is people’s short attention spans and memory loss. And because it gives Dem a—holes something to be happy about. False hopes-but they’ll take it.
They got their 20% margin just in time to skew “poll of poll” averages. Pew is useless
Ignore the Polls
Pray and Work for it!
Here are the “internals” for party affiliation:
Democrat - 38%
Independent - 28%
Republican - 28%
If Republicans turn out in numbers similar to the 2004 and 2006 elections (same or about 2% less than Democrats), this election is very, very close!
Based on what I’ve been seeing, I fully expect Republicans to turn out in massive numbers.
Tuesday should be interesting!
Is Pew included in the RCP average?
Mac must be winning if even Pew, with their nonsensical methodology, has him within six.
If the party turnout is within the range it’s been since 1980, this poll says we win.
“More significant, the race is about even among voters who plan to vote on Election Day: 46% support McCain while 45% favor Obama.”
