Zogby Poll No Longer Tightening...
Now it's widening. Only now McCain's on top.
Or so implies Drudge, with the headline:
ZOGBY: MCCAIN MOVES INTO LEAD 48-47 IN ONE DAY POLLING
So by "widening" I mean that if you interpolate continuously between Friday's 7-point Obama lead and Saturday's 1-point McCain lead, at some point it would've been tied.
And if you extrapolate based on the current momentum, McCain should be up by 25 points by Tuesday.
The republic is saved!
Update: JZ clarifies:
Pollster John Zogby: "Is McCain making a move? The three-day average holds steady, but McCain outpolled Obama today, 48% to 47%. 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. If McCain has a good day tomorrow, we will eliminate Obama's good day three days ago, and we could really see some tightening in this rolling average. But for now, hold on."
The 3-day average is 49-44 for Obama.
