PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Republican presidential nominee John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are running neck-and-neck among likely voters, a poll released Thursday indicates.
The Gallup Poll Daily tracking has both presidential candidates with 46 percent support. The poll, conducted Sept. 22 to Sept. 24, is based on interviews with 2,731 likely voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
"The data show that McCain has been doing slightly better for the last three days than he had in the previous week, and with some strong Obama days falling off of the rolling average, the race has moved to its current tied position," Gallup's Frank Newport said.
The poll marked the first report since its Sept. 13 to Sept. 15 survey in which Obama did not have at least a one-point edge.
