Gallup Poll: Virtual Tie, Obama 44% – McCain 42% … Where be the Bounce?

Posted in: Barack Obama,Politics,Polls,Presidential Election 2008

According to the Gallup Poll, its a virtual tie between Obama and McCain for the Fall election. One thing is for certain, there was no bounce for Obama after he locked up the Democratic nomination. The fact that there continues to be no bounce in the polls is a bad sign for Obama when all had predicted at least a 10 point lead following rapping up the nomination. So why is it that such a charismatic candidate and the media darling has no momentum? Maybe because voters realize he is all talk.

PRINCETON, NJ — Voters are closely divided between Barack Obama and John McCain in Gallup Poll Daily tracking conducted June 12-14, with 44% of national registered voters favoring Obama for president and 42% backing McCain.

Gallup states that there appears to be the large number of undecided voters,15% not favoring either major-party candidate. This includes 7% of voters who say they are undecided and 8% who say they will not vote for either candidate. No Quarter seems to think one of the reasons for the lack of support for Obama was the way in which they have failed to reach out to Hillary supporters. 

According to a recent Rasmussen and CNN poll is was a tie as well.

UPDATE I: NEW R-J NEVADA POLL: McCain 44%, Obama 42%

With five months until Election Day, a lot can and will happen, Coker noted. But the poll shows that the two candidates begin the general election season evenly matched in Nevada, a state that has voted for the winner of every presidential race with the exception of 1976.

UPDATE II: 3 likely candidates express little interest in VP

What is most interesting is that no one in the Democratic Party on the VP A-list appears to want to be Obama’s VP on the ticket. Mark Warner of VA is the latest to take his name out of the running for VP.

UPDATE III: Hmm … Comments from the Left … I guess Red State got the non-Obama bounce wrong as well and did not read the link either, NOT! Wait until the true Independents and Conservative Democrats cross over to McCain and the Left loses their collective minds. Obama is too liberal for America and talk is cheap.
