Best-ever showing by the Republican:
McCain’s 48% share of the vote ties for his largest since Gallup tracking began in early March. He registered the same level of support in early May. This is also McCain’s largest advantage over Obama since early May, when he led by as much as six percentage points. Obama has led McCain for most of the campaign, and for nearly all of the time since clinching the Democratic nomination in early June.
Rasmussen today has it tied at 48%, and the latest Zogby poll shows McCain ahead 50-46.
