As the race for a presidential leader enthusiastically continues, neither Senators Barack Obama nor John McCain has a good grasp on the voters. Up until recently, polls show that Obama has head a steady lead on McCain, but that is starting to change. In recent polls that the New York Times and the Washington Post concocted show Obama ahead of McCain by 3 points (45% to 42%) but since the margin of error is # points, the election is considered to be in a “dead heat.”
With the election so close, both Obama and McCain are trying to find ways to pull voters into their direction. McCain’s plan of attack is to appeal to the swing states and to attract the swing voters. The five states that McCain is concentrating a lot on are, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Ohio.
