McCain Erases Obama Lead

A new national poll suggests John McCain is gaining ground regardless of which Democratic candidate ends up with the nomination.

In an Associated Press-Ipsos national poll, McCain has erased
Barack Obama's 10-point advantage in a head-to-head matchup.

An AP-Ipsos poll taken in late February had Obama leading McCain
51-41 percent. The current survey, conducted this week, has them at
45 percent each with McCain leading Obama among men, whites,
Southerners, married women and independents.

In the February poll, Hillary Rodham Clinton led McCain 48
percent to 43 percent. In the latest poll, Clinton holds a 48
percent to 45 percent advantage over McCain.

Clinton and McCain are statistically tied when the poll's margin
of error of 3.1 percentage points is factored in.

    It won't matter if your next president is Republican. The whole congress and senate is democrat majority. Nothing will be accomplished. If you vote in a democrat for president, the only accomplishment for the next four years will be more taxes to fund all the give away programs.

    YEAH!! When you look at some issues that will continue to be issues, and examine your heart you know he is the best candidate. Abortion, taxes, education, etc. Our society has fallen apart, but the responsibility to fix things does not rest on the shoulders of one person. We all have to stand up for families, each other, and the future we leave behind. I am an independent, and though none of the candidates is ideal McCain is the best of those we have to choose from.

    Not surprising; however, I really don't want another Republican president right now. You know what? I just want positive change. I really wouldn't care if it were a Republican president sponsoring that change. Looking at America's condition, we're in a sad state of affairs. If things don't change, this nation is just going to sink deeper into the pit. Everyone just needs to pray for positive change.
