McCain Bounce in State and National Polls
The Real Clear Politics Poll average give Obama a 1.2% edge in the general election. This is within the margin of error and a substantial drop in Senator Obama's lead. What may be even more encouraging is that the state polls are swinging Senator McCain's way. Senator McCain has the lead in Ohio, Missouri, Colorado, and Florida. This gives Senator McCain the lead in electoral votes for the first time this election. With a strong showing at Saddleback this weekend and Senator Obama's favorablity ratings dropping like a stone; the McCain campaign is gathering momentum just as the conventions arrive.
