Obama tops McCain in national poll

(seattlepi.com) According to a national CBS News/New York Times poll, Sen. John McCain has not succeeded in convincing Americans that he is an agent of change, and Sen. Barack Obama is seen as more likely to shake things up in Washington, D.C.

The poll puts Obama ahead by a margin of 48 percent to 43 percent, a figure virtually unchanged from a mid-August survey completed before the Democratic and Republican conventions.

It found that McCain's pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as a running mate produced "a limited burst of interest" in the Republican ticket, but helped McCain "only among Republican base voters."

The survey has some disturbing news about the Palin pick.
More than 6 out of 10 voters surveyed said they would be concerned if McCain couldn't finish his term, and Palin became president. By contrast, two-thirds of those surveyed felt that Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware is qualified to take over from Obama.

The poll was taken between Friday and Tuesday, as the crisis on Wall Street intensified and stocks began their tumble. It interviewed 1,133 adults including 1,004 registered voters. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 3 percent.

The survey revealed wide differences in how Americans of various age groups intend to vote.
The 46-year-old Obama leads by 16 points among voters aged 18 to 44. The two candidates run even in the 45 to 64 age group.

The 72-year-old McCain is, however, 17 points up among voters 65 and over, and holds a similar lead among white men.

Several opinion polls on Wednesday indicated that McCain's "bounce" from the GOP convention is over.

The Gallup daily tracking poll put Obama two points ahead, 47 percent to 45 percent, his first lead since Republicans convened in St. Paul two weeks ago. A poll for the national political Hotline gave Obama a one-point lead. The Research 2000 poll, for the liberal dailykos website had the Illinois senator ahead, 48 percent to 44 percent.

Only when McCain is ahead. That appears to have died down. Sorry, shouldn't have said died.

Just get used to the words "President Barr". Kinda rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

It seems that I did. Do you have a problem with that?

I'm afraid you're the only one old enough here for the rest of us to gauge the effects of that.

There seems to be a misconception about my age. I am still in my 50s. We have several 60s aged folks around that might know.

But I am impressed that you spelled gauge correctly.
