McCain Cuts Obama Lead to 1.9

Three Day Tracking Poll 10-7 10-6
Obama 47.1% 47.7%
McCain 45.2% 45.3%
Others/Not sure 7.7% 7.0%

The Zogby poll goes on to credit Sarah Palin’s debate as the event that has turned things around for McCain.

The survey, including a three-day sample of 1,220 likely voters collected over the previous three days – approximately 400 per day from Oct. 5-7, 2008 – shows that Obama holds a slight advantage amounting to 1.9 percentage points over McCain. This represents a bit of a recovery by McCain, who had been sliding in some polls before his running mate, Sarah Palin, put in a strong performance in her one and only debate performance last Thursday.
