CNN Poll of Polls update: Obama leads McCain by five points

(CNN) – The CNN Poll of Polls has been updated to reflect a new AP-IPSOS poll. Sen. Obama now holds a five-point lead over Sen. McCain – 48 percent to 43 percent – with 9 percent of registered voters remaining unsure about their choice for president.

The latest CNN Poll of Polls is an average of the following four surveys: CNN/Opinion Research Corporation (July 27-29), AP-IPSOS (July 31-August 4), USA Today/Gallup (July 25-27), and Gallup tracking (August 2-4). The poll of polls does not have a sampling error.

The previous CNN poll of polls released earlier Tuesday showed Obama leading McCain by 4 percentage points.

    It does not matter what the polls are saying, Obama is incapable of beating McCain without having Hillary Clinton on the ticket as his VP. Other wise, I will vote for McCain, like so many others will do, before handing over my vote to a loser! Obama has no talent, skills, knowledge nor experience to lead this great country.

    WAKE UP DELEGATES! at the convention, give you vote to Hillary Clinton and make her your nominee, she is the only one that is capable of beating McCain in November. Mark my words!
