Zogby sees Obama’s number and McCain’s numbers essentially as stable:
Yesterday, the numbers were 52-40. Zogby describes the elements in his polling that contribute to Obama’s sustained strength:
Obama continues to dominate among independent voters – he leads by a 56% to 30% margin over McCain among those voters – and among those who have already cast their ballots. Those who have already voted now comprise more than 10% of the Zogby sample, and Obama holds a 20-point lead in that category. Among those who are new voters – registering in the last 6 months – the Democrat holds a 69% to 26% edge over McCain.
