ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York poll finds Sen. Barack Obama's lead in the state has fallen to five points, down from 18 points in June.
The Siena Research Institute poll has Obama, a Democrat, leading Sen. John McCain 46 to 41 percent among likely voters in the heavily Democratic state. He led 51-33 in the June survey.
Oh dear. I don't think obama can afford to sink money into NY. Do you?

Is this a backlash from Hillary supporters? From VP Palin?

See I don't understand the statement about people voting McCain because he'd be "stronger on fighting terrorism and enhancing America's strength in the world". What I like best about Obama is that he would help improve our image in the wider world thereby making us less of a target to these extremists. I am and American and I care how we look to the rest of the world. I value the good opinion of our allies and the possibility that we could gain more allies.

Perhaps if we were more well liked we would not have to be stronger and could concentrate on our floundering economy.

This dangerous mentality is the reason why the dems/libs have not been trusted with FP/NS for DECADES.

This is NY Sanrene so I dont' think the polls are really credible. Most of the people polled on the street can not tell you who the state representives are. They often do not know who the candidates are running for president or that there is even an election. Be afraid, very afraid.

I thought he lost some ground. I may be wrong. But again, it is NY which has become a bastion of trash.

Well, since this is the first polls done post-convention and post-Palin ... things might be different now. We shall see.

internal polling by both Democrats and Republicans show Barack Obama beginning to fade in New York.
Quote:
What happened? The Post credits the selection of Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate, but the snub of their Senator by Obama for the other position may have created a backlash among New Yorkers. The tax problems of Charlie Rangel may have contributed to the falling fortunes of Democrats, and the Post forgets that this is the first election since Eliot Spitzer’s resignation over his affairs with high-priced hookers. If the Republican brand suffered nationally, the Democratic brand isn’t doing well in New York now, and the reform rhetoric of Obama isn’t convincing voters there.
The haze is beginning to lift from the eyes of the voters.
