McCain Up 5 in Latest Zogby Poll

Up 46%-41% over The One, John McCain finally has the lead in a national poll!  What’s special about this poll is not simply that McCain is up, but unlike many of the polls which have this race tied, the new Reuters-Zogby poll is of 1,089 “likely voters”, rather than the weaker “registered voters” or the worst “adults” in its sampling.  McCain’s even up 5 points when you add in Barr and Nader!

However, with a +/- 3 point margin of error, it’s still pretty much a tie in the worst case scenario, and like Obama, McCain has still not cracked 50%, but this outlier and its trends are a good sign going into the DNC early next week.

Trouble is, it’s a Zogby poll. That man lost all credibility when he experimented with internet sampling and pimped Kerry straight through election day 2004, until he switched his sample in the afternoon to accurately reflect Bush’s win.

Fortunately, the legit polls are starting to trend to McCain too.
