Obama vs. McCain

OBAMA vs. McCAIN….I periodically take a look at the poll-of-polls average maintained by RealClear Politics for the general election, primarily to keep myself on an even keel whenever I see a new poll showing one candidate or the other suddenly doing better or worse than expected. Here’s today’s, and as you can see nothing much has changed. Obama began to open up a sizable lead on McCain after the final primaries on June 3, and ever since Hillary’s concession speech later that week he’s maintained a 5-point lead, give or take a few points.

There’s no larger point to make here. Just thought you’d all like to see the numbers.
