UTICA, New York — The race for President appeared to slip into neutral Thursday, as support for Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain moved only slightly in the last 24 hours, the latest Reuters/C–SPAN/Zogby daily tracking telephone poll shows.
Part of one day’s worth of polling came after Obama’s 30–minute televised campaign pitch to voters on Wednesday, but voters didn’t seem to react one way or the other. The contest remained static with Obama garnering 50.1% support, compared to McCain’s 43.1%.
Undecideds or those who support other candidates increased slightly to 6.8% of the sample.
Even in the demographic subgroups, the race changed almost not at all. Including Election Day, there are five days left in the race.
