CAMPAIGN ALERT: Obama losing the lead?
It may be an outlier poll, state polls may matter far more, and Obama's veep pick and convention bounces may erase McCain's gains, but the new Reuters/Zogby survey of likely voters shows John McCain pulling ahead of Barack Obama by five points nationally, and pulling out to a 9-point advantage on the economy. Combined with Obama’s average lead over John McCain of just 3 points nationally (before the Zogby/Reuters poll,) according to RealClearPolitics, the latest Bloomberg/LosAngeles Times poll that has the race tightening to just 2 points, and the CNN "poll of polls" which shows a 3-point gap, it is indicative of a very unhealthy trend.

And while maybe it's not quite time to hit the panic button, Obama supporters (and hopefully the campaign itself,) can no longer deny that Houston, we have a problem.
