New York - Republican John McCain's poll numbers improved slightly as he suspended his campaign Wednesday to head back to Washington to focus on the looming national financial crisis, moving from more than three points behind Barack Obama last weekend to two points ahead in a Zogby Interactive survey just out of the field this morning.
McCain now leads Obama, 45.8% to 43.8%, the survey shows.
The big shift in the race appears to have come among independent voters, where McCain now leads by nine points, 43% to 34%. In the survey conducted over the weekend, Obama led by one point among independents.Web Link
I bet that Clintons strong praise of McCains leadership is having an effect on independents, but I must McCain gaining 10 points in a few days is astounding given what is going on.
