    CNN poll of polls: Obama lead cut in half
    Posted: 06:21 AM ET

    From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney

    (CNN) — In what could be an ominous sign for Barack Obama just days before he is formally named the Democratic presidential nominee, a new CNN poll of polls out Tuesday shows the Illinois senator's lead over John McCain has been cut in half in recent days. According to CNN's average of several recent national surveys, Obama's lead is now a slim 3 points over the Arizona senator, 46-43 percent — half of his advantage in a CNN poll of polls one week ago, and down from a high of 8 points in mid-July.

    The latest poll results come amid increased attacks from McCain on Obama's readiness to be commander-in-chief and the re-emergence of national security worries among voters in the wake of the Georgia crisis.

    “Over the last week, we’ve seen Sen. Obama’s lead in the poll of polls cut in half,” noted CNN Senior Political Researcher Alan Silverleib. “This change was likely driven by a renewed focus on foreign policy after Russia’s invasion of Georgia, as well as by Sen. McCain’s willingness to launch more aggressive attacks against Obama on issues such as off-shore drilling."

    A Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll out Tuesday evening was the latest national survey to indicate Obama's lead is dwindling, putting the Illinois senator ahead of McCain by only 2 points, well within the poll's margin of error. The CNN Poll of polls also includes new surveys from Quinnipiac and Gallup.

    It's not bad enough for the party to dump Obama and go with someone else. Sadly.

    Elspeth - I can't stand Hillary but even I have to admit that she's a much better candidate then Obama.
    I don't understand why the dems went with him. He has nothing. He is nothing.
    An empty suit chicago mob politician who doesn't even lie well.
    Heck, although I disagree with Bill Richardson on most things, he was the best qualified.
    And he didn't even get barely a nod from the dems.

    Strange. Very strange. Sinister winds are afoot.
    There is something supernaturally evil with Obama.
    That's my opinion.

    He's inexperienced, and he's going to cost me a LOT of money if he's elected. That's evil, of course, but there's absolutely nothing "supernatural" about it.

    Worse news for the Chosen One is good news for America. I also can't undertand how the dems would continue to back him. He might be in for a surprise at the convention. If the polls continue like that, I'm wondering if it would be possible for the Hillary backers to stage a coup at the convention.

    From what I know of the DIMs, they will insist on Full Stupid Ahead. It's Obama or Bust for the Jackass Party.
