  1. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) has taken the largest lead yet among likely voters against Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in the national Gallup poll released Saturday. Obama expanded his lead to ten percent from nine percent on Friday.

    Obama's lead is a dramatic rise from the 49-47 percent margin that Gallup registered just four days ago.

    I really don't even know why anyone is interested in this election anymore. McCain simpy can not win, it's not going to happen no matter how many stupid threads stocktrader starts saying he will. We have lost, it's time to move on and figure out what to do next.
  4. Here is Sunday...my OP was Saturday. Sorry.

    "The election is almost over: Barack Obama kept his huge lead among likely voters in Sunday's Gallup Poll, with a 51-43 percent margin over John McCain.

    More bad news for McCain:

    Obama is far ahead, at 52-41 percent, with all voters.

    And still more:

    Gallup shows that Obama continues to be above the winning 50 percent mark with likely voters, which he's done for all but two of the last 16 days.

    And the final bad news:

    Nothing that McCain has done anytime in the last few weeks has made a significant and lasting dent in Obama's margin.

    Time is running out on McCain."
