Gallup now shows the race between John McCain and Barack Obama as a tie.
John McCain has gained ground and is now tied with Barack Obama among registered voters in the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update for Sept. 22-24, with each candidate getting 46% support.
Yesterday, Obama was up 3 points, so the loss of those 3 points is the result of dropping Sundays results and adding in Wednesdays. A big swing for one day's results to make happen.
Rasmussen, which generally shows a tighter race than Gallup, has Barack up 3%.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows Barack Obama attracting 49% of the vote while John McCain earns 46%. Other than the bounces related to his convention and speech in Berlin, this is the first time Obama has had 49% support on back-to-back days since early July. It’s also McCain’s lowest level of support in nearly three weeks.
