    Default Barack Obama regaining lead over John McCain in national polls

    CNN POLL OF POLLS: Obama up by 2

    Obama is gaining in national polls.



    (CNN) Barack Obama appears to be regaining his summer edge over John McCain according to the latest CNN poll of polls, which shows a swing of four points in the Illinois senator's favor in just over a week.
    With less than seven weeks remaining until voters weigh in at the polls, Obama now holds a 2 point lead over McCain (47 percent to 45 percent), according to CNN's average of several recent national polls. Eight percent still remain undecided.
    The latest polls also suggest Obama again holds the slim but clear advantage he held in August before both parties' conventions one month ago, Obama held the same 2 point margin over McCain.
    Election Center: Track CNN's poll of polls
    The Illinois senator increased that lead following his own convention, but saw it disappear entirely after McCain tapped Sarah Palin as his running mate and Republicans emerged energized from their convention in early September: In a CNN poll of polls taken 10 days ago, The McCain-Palin ticket held a 2 point advantage over its Democratic counterpart.
    The poll of polls consists of six recent surveys: CBS/NYT (September 12-16), Quinnipiac (September 11-16), IPSOS-McClatchy (September 11-15), Gallup (September 14-16), Diageo/Hotline (September 14-16), and American Research Group (September 13-15).
    It does not have a sampling error.

    You know why? because he's become more aggressive. He's stopped the nicey nice shit and is attacking them on the very same crap they're spewing.

    Yeah, Obama's gotten tougher, and McCain's looking weaker by constantly playing the 'victim card.'

    Looks like the Palin factor is winding down and reality is setting in. The polls taken in just the last few days have Obama up by the most. Good sign.

    I bet the criticism will be that Obama is doing a nasty campaign even though hes hitting him on the issues HARD.

    It's the economy. No one thinks McCain is going to repair the economy any more than Bush. And, people are pissed and they want someone to pay for it. Who's going to pay? The ruling party.

    Good for him. I liked this from yesterday...

    LAS VEGAS -- The rest of the Democratic establishment has been panicking in recent days over the upward trajectory of the McCain-Palin ticket -- but Sen. Barack Obama appears to be barely letting his blood pressure rise. He held two events today, one in Elko, Nev., another here. He chided Sen. John McCain some at both. "Yesterday, John McCain actually said that if he's president, he'll take on the, quote, old boys' network in Washington," Obama said in Elko.

    "I am not making this up. This is someone who's been in Congress for 26 years - who put seven of the most powerful Washington lobbyists in charge of his campaign - and now he's the one who will take on the old boy network?" Obama continued. "The old boy network? In the McCain campaign, that's called a staff meeting."

    The line drew an enthusiastic response from the more than 1,500 guests the campaign estimated were in attendance. But it was still just a cool zinger -- in keeping with the mellow tone pervading the campaign even in what some of his allies consider a time for worry. Adding to the low-key vibe was a new ad, running two minutes in length, released on Wednesday morning featuring Obama speaking directly into the camera about the financial crisis.
    By nighttime, Obama got a little more revved up. At a rally inside a baseball stadium here, Obama opened with a rousing "Si se puede" and joked about playing the slot machines while he was in town. But he quickly brought the crowd back down to a more serious level. He told people they could sit down -- rather than standing in their seats -- and said it had been a "difficult day, in a difficult week, in a difficult year," as he launched into what is becoming a standard part of his stump speech, about the financial meltdown. "I didn't just read a poll and say, 'Oh, hey, this is a change election,'" he said.
    Pro-McCain protestors outside the Obama event here were much more worked up. One woman carried a sign with a photo of Obama on it that read: "The anti-American choice." Several held up "Welcome McCain" signs, and there were a smattering of ones featuring the increasingly popular slogan: "No-Bama!"

    I like "McCain + Palin = McPain"

    I agree the economy is helping Obama's numbers. Has anyone seen this ad yet? It needs to be played in all 50 states, every hour on the hour:

    You have a point there. I do know people who have been called and have even been called myself.
