New Zogby Poll: McCain Moves Into Virtual Tie With Obama

John McCain has suddenly pulled back to a "statistical dead heat" with Barack Obama according to the latest poll by John Zogby.

"Zogby’s latest poll, released yesterday in conjunction with C-Span and Reuters, shows Obama and John McCain in a statistical dead heat, with the Illinois Democrat up 48-45 percent." (plus/minus 3% margin of error).

Voters are beginning to finally learn just who Barack Obama really is and it seems they don't like what they see.

Zogby said the race mirrors the 1980 election, when voters didn’t embrace Ronald Reagan over then-President Jimmy Carter until just days before the election.

“The Sunday before the election the dam burst,” Zogby said of the 1980 tilt. “That’s when voters determined they were comfortable with Reagan.”

On October 9th 2004, polls were showing John Kerry to have a 3-4% lead over George W. Bush and we all know how that one worked out.
