There is even more good news for John McCain today from a new poll taken from a new poll taken which shows that McCain has gained support from women since his convention:

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.

The race for the White House is now a virtual tie, with Obama at 47 percent support of registered voters and McCain at 46 percent, the poll found.

Before the Democratic National Convention in late August, Obama held an 8 percentage point lead among white women voters, 50 percent to 42 percent, but after the Republican convention in early September, McCain was ahead by 12 points among white women, 53 percent to 41 percent, the poll found.

Asked about the findings during a briefing on Monday before the poll was published, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe told a Washington Post reporter, “Well, your poll is wrong.”

So now McCain has a 12 % lead over Obama with white women. — This quite an unexpected shift since I would normally imagine this voting block would be in the Obama camp.

BTW, I just love how the Obama campaign is in denial about the new poll results. 😛

Next, another poll today from gallup shows McCain’s gains among another important voting block, the Independents. McCain now has a 15 point lead among Independents which is another huge bounce for him. It is now 52% – 37.
