Zogby: McCain/Palin Up 47-45%

I'm not buying this one completely, as Zogby has been off before, although as we noted earlier today Sarah Palin was already polling better than Joe Biden.
The latest nationwide survey, begun Friday afternoon after the McCain announcement of Palin as running mate and completed mid-afternoon today, shows McCain/Palin at 47%, compared to 45% support for Obama/Biden.

In other words, the race is a dead heat.

The interactive online Zogby survey shows that both Obama and McCain have solidified the support among their own parties - Obama won 86% support of Democrats and McCain 89% of Republicans in a two-way head-to-head poll question not including the running mates. When Biden and Palin are added to the mix, Obama's Democratic support remains at 86%, while McCain's increases to 92%.
Two words that may scare you off: interactive online. Keep that in mind.

If the daily tracker at Rasmussen moves significantly the next couple of days, then Zogby will have been ahead of the curve.
