(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.
I don't rely on these biased poll results. I'm noticing a pattern. If Senator McCain ridicules Senator Obama and it seems to stick, then McCain is up in the polls. If Senator Obama responds and it seems to stick, then he is up in the polls. Personally, I think that Senator Obama's lead is much larger than reported. We'll know soon.
Roll Obama Roll! We will take this in November!!!! What these polls don't show is the Democrats secret weapon!!!! This is going to be soooo goood!!!!!
A Five Point Lead Is A Landslide! Obama Has Been In The Lead From The Begining And Will Stay There Until Its Over In November!
What about the other Candidates that are running for President? How do their number affect the polls? Please CNN educate us?
See McLame, you put out nigoted, and demeaning ads, it comes back to bite you in the butt. The numbers will keep on rising. Never again, will the people of this country fall for the Republican line of lieas and treachery! Go OBAMA!!!
Its really more like 19%
Fortunately McCain's pathetic attempts at humor, which he claims to be proud of, are bringing his numbers down instead of up. Every week there is something sillier than the week before, now it's tire gauges. What will he think of next? His positive ad sounded good, until you find out that he proudly, in his own words, tied himself to Bush by voting with him over ninety percent of the time. Now he talks about failed Bush policies. He backed himself into a corner with this one.
YES WE CAN!!!!!!!!
GO, GO, GO, GO, GO, GO, GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SEND THE OLD, CONFUSED, WRINKLED, PAMPER WETTING, DENTURE WEARING, HEARING AId IMPAIRED WHINER BACK TO AZ!!!!
As a STATISTICAL MEASURE, the POLL-OF-POLLS throw away information, is meaningless and tells absolutely nothing about the voter's ..belief, opinion, predilection, etc, etc.
It is not a STOCHASTIC CONCEPT AND HENCE NOT CONNECTED WITH ANY RANDOM PROCESS WHICH IS THE BASIS OF A PREDICTION ..probability statement.
Hence "the poll of polls does not have a sampling error" is the only meaningful statement in your report.
The utility of the report is only to fill the airways with TALKING HEAD BLABBERING to stimulate controversy which tends to increase viewer rating.
Wait until the people pull the curtains and vote. When they get in private and vote the issues and who is better to lead the country, they will vote McCain. We will not be suckered or shamed into voting for BHO because we want to make up for perceived past sins.
McCain = 1/2 Bush + 1/2 Cheney
the old fool put his wife up for men to see and she will do it to
I guess the negative ads didn't work. Continue on American people is smarter than that. How about actually discussing real soultions!
CNN – so why are you using polls that are 2 weeks old? Why not try using the Rasmussen Reports (daily tracking) that have coincidentally been more right than the ones you used. Hope you're not trying to be a pollyana influencing the minds of your mindless readers.
Leave to ONN (Obama News Network) to go out there and search for another poll to add that will make their pathetic fool look even more like a winner. Jack Cafferty must have wet his pants when he heard the news. Just think what Chrissy and Keithy over at the other Obama network, MSNBC, must have done. There goes that something running up Chrissys leg again. Bring in the mop crew.
I see the swarmy rampant sexists that were everywhere in these comments when the real nominee was still in the race are back as ageists. McCain has more integrity in his little finger than most of these nasty vile little pathetic know nothings . I wonder how many of them could survive 5 years in a North Vietnamese prison camp, come out limping with permanent injuries to their arms and still thrive and progress as McCain has. I think most of these comments are from young punks that are still wet behind the ears and have no idea what life is really about. Give me McCain to one of these young punks anyday. They're pathetic little slime that just crawled out of the gutter.
Yes we will. Put America back on track!
AND THE RISE WILL CONTINUE
BARACK THE VOTE !!!
Meanwhile, today's Ra*ssmussen daily poll has McCain and Obama tied at 44%.
All the polls say is....at this point, the race is too close to call.
If not Hillary, then McCain!
I'm an Obama Supporter ... & Don't take National Polls Seriously .. CNN I recommend you focus on State by State Polls ... but not from your Electoral MAP .. because it is bogus ...
State by State Polls is what is Important ... the Presidency is determined by Electoral Votes not Popular Votes
Were are all of the repubs that were talking poles last week?
The site Usaelectionpolls list electorial college numbers by the most recent state by state polls. Obama 311 McCain 227.
This guy, " OBAMA'S " arrogance, is second to none. I don't know who
he think's he is, but he isn't him. This guy think's he know's everything,
and know's nothing. " OBAMA " is scared to ( Debate) " McCain " on
any issue of substance. The Democratic Party is definitely hard-up
to have Nominated this guy " OBAMA " for President.
B.O. doesn't stand for Barack Obama, but " BAD-ODOR " in –
This Guy S.T.I.N.K.S.
Go Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES WE CAN>>>>> change this mess (the Bushes) have gotten us into. Could someone tell me where is this so called poll !!! that CNN talks about so much I am not casting my vote on this poll and I am sure a lot of others are not either. Where can supporters of Obama go to cast their votes on these so called polls? This is why Obama isn't showing a bigger led because Obama supporters can't find these polls and everyone does not own a computer.
Karma, Karma, Karma, Karma
You reap what you sow :-)
Oh – Bama
Oh – Eight
Oh – Bama
Oh – YEAH ! !
Yes what about cynthia mckinney, bob bar and ralph nader where are the tickers on them, give us some real variety. I dont think obama or McCain should be president.
Funny, I look back a couple of articles and many who are posting here are cursing cnn for showing a poll that has the two candidates statistically tied. You all remind me of my kids, throwing temper tantrums until they get what they want then they become happy all over again. Just remember the only poll that will count is the final one come November when America has spoken.
