Obama – 49%
McCain – 43%

Obama holds steady and McCain gains one since yesterday

The 5 day:
06/23/2008: McCain – 43%, Obama – 49%
06/22/2008: McCain – 42%, Obama – 49%
06/21/2008: McCain – 43%, Obama – 48%
06/20/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 48%
06/19/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 48%

Some demographic info shows why Obama’s in the lead…

Currently, Obama and McCain are essentially even among men while the Democrat leads by twelve among women. McCain leads 49% to 42% among White Voters but trails 93% to 3% among African-American voters. Among voters who see economic issues as most important this year, Obama leads 59% to 32%. As for those who view national security issues as most important, McCain leads 59% to 37%.

With national security on the nation’s backburner for now, does Obama hold a nearly insurmountable lead going into the general? I mean, a 27% difference is just mammoth, and I don’t know what McCain can do to make up that much ground.

More tomorrow…
