The most recent Real Clear Politics poll average has McCain gaining slightly to pull within 5.5% nation wide, up from a 6.2% spread just yesterday. These numbers, however, do not account for third party candidates. Ralf Nader is expected to bring in 2.5% while Bob Barr should take 1.5%, but the real x-factor in the third parties is Green Party candidate Cynthia MacKinny. The most recent Real Clear Politics poll with Barr and Nader included puts the race a little closer with McCain trailing by 4.2% nationally, but this number does not include the Green Party's super liberal candidate who will likely pull votes from Obama or the now infamous "Bubba" vote. So, is it still a horse race?
