A new poll shows the combined ticket of Obama/Biden ahead of the McCain/Palin ticket by one percentage point — 46 percent to 45 percent respectively. Six percent were undecided.

The poll was conducted by Strategic Vision, LLC, among New Hampshire voters, and shows just how tight the race is, and just how rapidly voter opinion can change. The upcoming debates could cause a major shakeup in both state and national polls.

In the likeability category, John McCain trumped Barack Obama 59 percent to 52 percent, respectively. McCain was viewed unfavorably by 29 percent; and 12 percent were undecided.

For Obama, 36 percent viewed him unfavorably; and 12 percent weighed in undecided.

In the vice presidential category, Republican Sarah Palin beat out Democrat Joe Biden 50 percent to 48 percent, respectively. Palin was viewed unfavorably by 35 percent, and 15 percent were undecided.

Biden was viewed unfavorably by 38 percent and 14 percent were undecided.

Former Hillary Clinton supporters are increasingly turning their attention toward Republican McCain, according to polling data: 8 percent reported support for McCain.

The poll also questioned respondents on the economy: When asked who would be best able to handle the economy, 48 percent said Obama; 41 percent said McCain; and 11 percent were undecided.

When asked about the proposed $700 billion federal government bailout plan, 28 percent supported it; 49 percent opposed it; and 23 percent were undecided.

When asked if they believed the plan would help the economy, 27 percent said yes; 48 percent said no; and 25 percent were undecided.

Respondents were also asked to weigh in on how Congress was doing: 14 percent approved; 70 percent disapproved; and 16 percent were undecided.

The poll was conducted over a three-day period and included 800 likely voters in New Hampshire. There is a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
