McCain Up in New Polls

Proving once again the eternal wisdom of Abe Lincoln in his quote, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time," when presidential candidates met over the weekend in the first joint issues forum of the fall campaign, the latest polling has Republican John McCain with a five-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama in the race the latest Reuters/Zogby telephone survey shows.

A new Rasmussen poll of Florida voters finds Republican John McCain with a 2-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama — well within the poll’s 4.5 percent margin of error. McCain leads 48-to-46 percent.

Reuters reports the dip in support for Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president, cut across demographic and ideological lines. He slipped among Catholics, born-again Christians, women, independents and younger voters. He retained the support of more than 90 percent of black voters.

It's no wonder Obama is a coward when it comes to meeting McCain's challenges of debating him in town hall type forums.
