Election Poll: McCain leads Obama

McCain ticket wins electionsSenator John S. McCain made an obvious step in the right direction to become the 44th president of the United States and win my bets: The newest USA Today Gallup Poll has him with the momentum from the Republican Party's national convention with 50% in front of Barack Obama's 46% among registered voters.

Does the Republican vice president candidate Sarah Palin (44) win all sympathies? It seems so: In the past week McCain was in another Gallup poll still seven points behind his rival, despite all Nostradamus prophecies. The political scientist Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia called the Republican Party convention a great success, the nomination of Sarah Palin as vice president candidate made a »big difference«. According to the survey 29% of respondents said they would rather vote for McCain in the presidential election on 4th of November because of Sarah Palin; on the other hand only 21% wanted to rethink their support for McCain because of the female governor of Alaska.
