Poll shows shift to McCain among women

Barack Obama had better get Hillary Clinton fired up. Reuters is reporting today that John McCain has gained huge support among white women since naming Sarah Palin as his running mate and now leads Democrat Barack Obama among those voters, according to a survey published on Tuesday.

It reports on a Washington Post/ABC News poll found that much of McCain’s surge in the polls since the Republican National Convention is attributable to the shift in support among white women.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll found that much of McCain’s surge in the polls since the Republican National Convention is attributable to the shift in support among white women.  However, this poll also had the race at a virtual tie, with Obama at 47% and McCain at 46%. This differs from yesterday’s poll that had the Republican leading, but is well within the 1.8% margin of error.
