The very latest poll numbers from John Zogby put John McCain squarely ahead of Barack Obama at 46 percent to 44 percent, respectively.
McCain moved from three percentage points behind Obama to two points ahead of the democratic candidate in less than a week. One possible reason for the boost — McCain’s decision to forgo politics as usual to focus on the current financial meltdown. The polling was partially conducted after McCain’s announcement that he would suspend his campaign.
Independent voters played a key role in the latest figures: McCain now leads with independents by nine points, 43 percent to 34 percent.
The survey was conducted on Sept. 23-25, 2008, with 4,752 likely voters and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 1.5 percentage points.
