Battle for the White House: The Final National Poll
The campaign trail comes to an end today for Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain. In a Marist Poll, conducted entirely on the eve of Election Day, Barack Obama leads John McCain by 9 percentage points nationally — 52% to 43% — among likely voters including those who are undecided yet leaning toward a candidate. In Marist’s Sunday night poll, McCain trailed Obama by the same margin among this group. Among registered voters nationwide, Obama is now ahead of McCain 50% to 42%.
