(CNN) – Barack Obama continues to hold a solid lead over John McCain with just over 80 days remaining until the presidential election, a new CNN poll of polls shows.
According to the average of several recent national polls, Obama registers 47 percent among registered voters nationwide with McCain at 41 percent.
That lead has basically held steady over the last two months: A CNN poll of polls on June 20 also had the race at 6 points, 46 percent to 40 percent.
The national general election poll of polls consists of four surveys: Pew (July 31-August 10), CBS (July 31-August 5), AP-IPSOS (July 31-August 4), and Gallup tracking (August 10-12). The poll of polls does not have a sampling error.
That's great news. Let's hope this holds up to the election.
Notice BO won't debate McCain before the convention....otherwise a called vote for Hillary might just be interesting :)
Hey Dylan in California, I wouldn't be nearly as happy about not seeing McCain stickers on North San Diego County bumpers as I would be concerned about all the Republicans, Independents and PUMAs who will just vote and not announce their preference with a bumper sticker. Continue your dream until November 4th. Then, like all the Obamatrons, you will have a rude awakening. Sleep tight!
Really amazing how far apart this country is. It really seems like 2 countries at times. Interesting that the educated people in this country are heavily favoring OBAMA. The right keeps doping everyone else with fear and lies.The choice is easy . The future vs the past. Wake up America.
Love the picture. It's almost as if McCain is thinking to himself... 'Hmmm, Obama has something in his ear' and Senator Obama is thinking 'Hmmm...Why is McCain staring into my ear, what's his deal...?'
All that's missing is Hillary bustin' into the room and being like 'Aiight, who's up for some drinkin'?!'.
Show me the polls after Labor Day
I'm just confused.
A lot of people are committed to Obama no matter what. The real test is going to be the voters, those 60% who decide after the conventions. I think he got a lot from being the Dems nominee, it's their year, but many of the people supporting Obama really dislike the man. Like me. I keep looking for reasons not to support Obama, and I will find them. Come November, Obama will loose because of people like me.
If the media wasn't in the tank for McCain and suppressing stories that make him look bad, Obama would be up by 10 points (at least). Perseverance still.
Go Obama! Si se puede!
Oh wow, I called CNN's poll of polls the joke of jokes and they didn't post it...lol don't be so sensetive Moderators. Sometimes you need to let the truth out. say woo sah!
Polls reflect the popular vote. Our so called Democracy is not by popular vote for the Presidency, it is by electoral vote. Obama could win the popular vote and still lose, like sort of what happened to Gore (but Florida was stolen by Jebb Bush). Both of these candidates better concentrate on a specific few key states to win, because this is going to be another close election like in 2000.
Things younger than John McCain:
Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches
Automatic Car Transmissions
Vote for a presidential candidate NOT endorsed by the worst president in American history!
McCain was a traitor in Vietnam!!
His foreign policies are based on Wikipedia!!
Ask Cheney, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft how valuable experience is!!
Get off my lawn!!!
McBush isntigated a WAR with Russia in order to kick Russia out of the G8? McBush was right on top of getting Aide to Georgia, however both McBush stand on the TARMAC in AZ celebrating a B-DAY when Katrina hits Louisianna, well then we know that McBush don't give a darn about Americans!!
McCan't Get a Clue!
I'm a staunch republican but will not vote for Mcain this election because
he is liberal (not moderate)
adulterous (not christian)
many of his ways are unchristian
I advise all republicans not to vote for the most UnGodly republican we might as well live with a dem president for another 4 yrs than live with the guilt of voting an UnGODLY man.
What count is the electoral college. Sure Barack Obama is popular, but there is a quiet storm brewing, the disenfranchised Hillary supporters. I doubt that they will vote for Obama after his supporters mocking them.
i cant wait till november i hope all america will come together so we can vote for this young vibrant senator to be president of america.
I want the DemocRATs to win, in 2008! and G.W. Bush, will be finally out of office.............then, they will have to "stand up" and "write their own history"...............and really be totally responsible, for something, other than "Just Words"!
McConfused: Are we all Georgians or what?
Not all Americans are Americans, questioning the patriostism of others.
But all Americans are Geoargians. What a confused logic.
Joe Bloggs....you have it switched....BO reads speeches well and doesn't debate well....McCain doesn't teleprompt well, but debates very well....he crushed Romney in the primaries, remember? Got him all flustered....that's what he'll do to Obama. Hillary had to be restrained from saying certain things. McCain can do and say whatever he wants to.
The Poll of Polls is an average of polls across the country. The November electorial process is a state by state winner take all vote. Per one analysis, the 6% difference reported can be completely accounted for by Obama's lead in California, the land of fruits and nuts.
HEY RAYMOND DUKE
I CAN CONFIRM THAT
I HAVE TRIED 3X TODAY TO GIVE THE TRUE POLLS..FROM INDEPENDENT SOURCES..
AND TO THINK MY SON GOT 2 PURPLE HEARTS PROTECTING THESE LIBERAL RACISTS
i M FROM USSR, AND OVER 30 YEAR I BEEN IN AMERICA. OBAMA SPEEK LIKE KOMMUNIST. TAKE FROM RICH ,TAKE FROM PEOPLE WHO MAKE BETTER THAN ANOTHER.WAKE UP AMERICA.
I don't know why anyone who actually works and pays taxes would vote for Mr. Obama rather than Mr. McCain. On the other hand, if Mr. Obama wins, I'll have to consider quitting work and becoming a ward of the State. It will pay better with less stress!
Let's see, McCain is a Rep. in a Democratic year, he admits to knowing little about the economy (America's #1 concern), and routinely misspeaks; yet Obama can't seem to move the dial at all in over 2 months. In fact, a month ago he led by 8. This should be a blowout. Could it be that many Americans see through to Obama celebrity dazzle and see there's no beef? Remember how Obama froze in the debates with Hillary, especially when George Steffanopolis asked some tough questions? One big mistake by Obama and he's toast. Democrats, be afraid, be very afraid. Can't wait for the PUMA demonstration at the convention.
Dream on CNN trying for force "the one" down our throats. . It will be McCain by 14 in November 08.
