CBS Poll: McCain, Obama Tied!

(CBS) The presidential race between Barack Obama and John McCain is now even at 42 percent, according to a new CBS News poll conducted Monday-Wednesday of this week. Twelve percent are undecided according to the poll, and one percent said they wouldn't vote.

This is in contrast to a poll conducted last weekend, where the Obama-Biden ticket led McCain-Palin by eight points, 48 percent to 40 percent.

McCain has also closed the enthusiasm gap some with Obama, but it still exists. Fifty-five percent of Obama's supporters are enthusiastic about their choice, and now so are 35% of McCain's. Last weekend, just 25 percent of McCain's supporters were enthusiastic about him, compared to 67 of Obama's supporters.

If you take out the CBS bias in the poll, McCain leads by 5 pts.

This is all incredibly amazing if you look at it from an historical perspective.

Post Convention there is always a "bump" as everyone knows. It is usually attributable to the News Outlets 24/7 coverage of them (biased or not). Now with the "drive by" media doing their "Be Afraid, Run for your lives" routine on the hurricanes in the gulf and not covering the Republicans, this is even more interesting that Obama/Biden are not running away with it.

Even the media having BO as their man, can't give the empty suit the lead.
