Previously I posted on some terrible polling news for Obama as he slid 12 points against John McCain in the last month in the LA Times/Bloomberg poll. Now a Zogby Poll (forever unreliable, I know) shows a dramatic shift towards McCain as well:
McCain leads Obama by a 46% to 41% margin.
This latest Reuters/Zogby poll is a dramatic reversal from the identical survey taken last month â€“ in the July 9-13 Reuters/Zogby survey, Obama led McCain, 47% to 40%.
That’s another 12 point drop for Obama. Clearly something is seriously wrong in Obamaland has he limps into the Democrat Convention next week.
Update: The latest Battleground Poll out shows McCain with a 1% lead. Also noteworthy are numbers on Iraq. 56% says things have gotten better in Iraq, up from 32% since just May. 15% say things are worse, down from 30% in May. Â So the negative/postive gap went from 2% to a whopping 41% just since May!
