Is Nader Taking Votes From…McCain?

A difficult to explain result in the latest WSJ/NBC poll:

After embarking on his highly publicized trip overseas, Obama enjoys a 47-41 percent advantage over McCain, which is unchanged from last month….

But Obama’s lead over McCain expands to 13 points when third-party candidates Ralph Nader and Bob Barr are added into the mix — with Obama at 48 percent, McCain at 35 percent, Nader at 5 percent and Barr at 2 percent.

So Nader does better than Barr, yet Obama goes up a point, and McCain drops six. Odd.

One thing that I found potentially troubling for McCain is that 55 percent of Americans think Obama is the riskier choice — that’s a pretty high number — and yet Obama still leads in the head-to-head poll by 6 points. That suggests that Americans are so eager for change, that they don’t mind taking a risk — and its hard to see that “risky” number getting much higher.
