According to Real Clear Politics, Obama lost another 20% of his average lead(1.6 down to 1.3) according to average of all polls.

Wait till McCain picks his VP and the RNC.

The Dems must be worried. With all the hatred for Bush, hope and change, and the Messiahâ„¢ among our presence, you guys are sure having a hard time keeping your heads above water. There should have been a 15+% point lead.

It is surprising. You've got the war, the neg hype about the economy, Bush, Hope/Change/Yes we can and the Messiah™. Instead of walking on water he's barely keeping his head above it.

What makes this even more sweet is Hillary would've likely been at +12% with the needed states locked up if the dems really had counted all the votes. You can't make up a better script

Let me ask you a question.

Considering the DNC ended late last night, how do these polls reflect public opinion of the DNC?

I agree. If this is still tied after both conventions I think that is bad news for the Dems.

I don't think they reflect the DNC just the electorate becoming better acquainted with Obama.
