Good Polling News

One robin does not make a spring, and one poll result does not necessarily signal a turn around. That said, it is worth noting the following finding from pollster John Zogby:

McCain outpolled Obama today, 48% to 47%.

Zogby goes on to to elaborate his findings as follows:
He is beginning to cut into Obama's lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters. Joe the Plumber may get his license after all. "Obama's lead among women declined, and it looks like it is occurring because McCain is solidifying the support of conservative women, which is something we saw last time McCain picked up in the polls.
Maybe these findings represent a statistical oddity, but good news is always welcome.
