USA Today/Gallup: McCain Leads Obama 54% – 44% Among Likely Voters

Oh to be a fly on the wall at Team Obama’s headquarters. Surely their internal polling must be showing similar trends. From USA Today:

In the new poll, taken Friday through Sunday, McCain leads Obama by 54%-44% among those seen as most likely to vote. The survey of 1,022 adults, including 959 registered voters, has a margin of error of +/– 3 points for both samples.

Here’s something worth noting: the article led with the poll of registered voters that has McCain up 50% – 46%. The paragraph I quoted above was buried at the end of the article.

Lorie adds: Ace comments in his post on the new poll:

I just got tipped the new McCain slogan:

That’s right, Trig is a Fake Pregnancy Changeling Baby.
What are you gonna do about it, punk?!

Now that’s the sort of confident straight-talking leadership we need.
