WASHINGTON (CNN) - Barack Obama holds a 4 point lead over John McCain, according to a compilation of the latest national surveys.
Forty seven percent of registered voters are backing the senator from Illinois in a new CNN Poll of Polls, released Friday, with 43 percent supporting the senator from Arizona. Ten percent of voters are unsure when it comes to their choice for president.
Obama’s lead is down one point from the last CNN Poll of Polls, which was released on Wednesday.
“It’s increasingly clear from our ‘poll of polls’ average that Sen. Obama holds a small advantage over Sen. McCain as we head into the general election,” says CNN Senior Political Researcher Alan Silverleib. “Time will tell whether Obama’s lead is a temporary bounce resulting from the end of the Democratic nomination fight, or whether it is a more permanent reflection of voters’ desire for change this year.”
This latest edition of the CNN Poll of Polls is an average of four new national surveys, a Gallup poll taken from June 9-12, an NBC/Wall Street Journal survey conducted from June 6-9, a Diageo/Hotline poll taken from June 5-8, and our own CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey conducted from June 4-5. The CNN Poll of Polls does not have a sampling error.
Down from 6 points yesterday. Where is Hillary? She's catching her breath and getting ready to re-start her campaign when Obama implodes.
The only poll that count is the one in November...
It is like I read earlier ,why do this daily?Why not monthly?
all the excitement, energy and hope is gone from the election
thanks to DNC and superdelegates with the miserable two left
standing to lead the country to who knows where.
Please... you have posted that same piece of news every single day this week.
IT DOES NOT MATTER! OBAMA WILL NOT WIN THE ELECTORAL VOTE!
GO PRINT THAT IN CHINESE!
so what CNN?
Obama 2008 and forever !!!
Ivoted for Jimmy Carter, didn't vote when Ronald Reagan was their or Bush Sr. I voted for Clinton 1 term. Didnt vote next term. I didn't vote in 2000, but voted for Kerry in 2004 because I was sick of it. I will vote Obama, and mark my words CNN, he will become president.
McCain:" he's older than his wife, and he's younger than his mama, hes old enough to be 1` and a half Barack Obamas.
This appears to be excellent news.
We need change. That is clear. Mccain is too old to understand that.
Obama 08 is the clear choice for me.
Sounds like he is dropping!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!
It is June...who cares what the polls say.
How does the electoral college map look?
That's what matters.
Because the same polls were so correct through out the Primary season I am sure this one is correct.
Ever notice political polls have as much accuracy as a Daisey Air Rifle?
“Time will tell whether Obama’s lead is a temporary bounce resulting from the end of the Democratic nomination"
Try–"Time will tell whether McCain's precentage is a temporary bounce resulitng from the Democratic in-fighting"- Now that the fight is almost over we will see if McCain can maintain his precentage once Obama locks horns with him.
I am so happy we are soooo poll-driven with 5 months to go. :(
last night I did a poll for the first time in my life. It was from the Quinnipiac university and will be ending on monday. from what i was telling her and she responed to my answers Obama is going to have a high averages on monday. i am very excited to see the results. funny to I am in the older woman votes for Obama.
If that's all the bump that Sen. Obama received from winning the Democratic nomination, it looks like he's in for a bumpy ride.
McSame's numbers will drop more each day/month. America doesn't want an old warmonger geezer with comb over to represent them.
"With a comb over", I meant
interesting.... Hussein's lead dwindles while ole man McCain cant seem to get out of his own way. The Dems have picked a loser. Too much baggage. NO-Bama in '08 or EVER.
Soon enough Obama will BLAST Caney-Cane out of the WAWA.
This Gap Is Sure To Increase In The Next Few Weeks! Morale Is Low In The Republican Camp! Deep Inside They Know They Are Going Down! Its Hard To Smile With A Fat Lip!
polls/shmolls.obama will win by much more than this.he wont veto beer.
Obama will trounce McStain soon, he's just getting his ducks in a row with moving the DNC to Chicago. Just wait, there's a lot of good things going on that will come to light soon. :-)
Obama/Sebelius or Webb '08
CNN is not trust-worth. Actually, it is so biased that it is fair to call it Cable News Nonsense.
Vote for John McCain 08! This American hero is in touch with mainstream America! :)
Obama has become petty and boring! He whines too much! He won't do joint-town halls because he is not good in an unscripted format up close and personal. And, it is now obvious that his change theme was just a come on.
Also, there are a lot of disillusioned Democrats who are not happy with the extreme left-wing Obama or the extreme left-wing Democratic party.
It is a long way to November, and Obama is in trouble already with his poor judgment and lack of impromptu speaking ability! Barack's thinking out loud with long awkward pauses is difficult to listen to! :(
