Within the margin of error:
"Whatever momentum that Obama took into the summer, he really appears to have lost it," says Republican pollster Neil Newhouse, who conducted the survey with Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart. "It is not a dead heat, but it is close." . . .
Obama . . . receives the support of just one in two voters who backed Hillary Clinton in the primaries. . . .
Yadda, yadda. Experts telling us what to think. Welcome to New Media. Just go to the numbers and draw your own conclusions. Here's Allah:
The X factor appears to be Hillary nuts, so devoted to their own cult that they can't quite bring themselves to join the Messiah's. In fact, she leads McCain by six in a hypothetical match-up, twice the margin Obama enjoys. . . . So diehard are her fans, in fact, that she’s had to put together a "whip team" to make sure they don’t do anything nutty to embarrass Barry O at the convention.
Thanks, Allah, for evoking the mental image of Hillary and her "whip team." Brain bleach, anyone?

UPDATE: What is this, National Everybody Release a Poll Day? CBS/NYTimes poll also has it at Obama 45%, McCain 42%.

UPDATE II: And yet another national poll, this one the highly respected bipartisan Battleground Poll, which shows McCain 47%, Obama 46%.
