.- A new Zogby poll claims that the presidential race between Republican Sen. John McCain and Democrat Sen. Barack Obama is again narrowing, with Monday results showing Obama leading McCain 47.9 percent to 43.6 percent. Obama enjoys a slightly greater lead among Catholics.
Among self-described Catholics, Obama leads by 49.5 percent to 44.3 percent, Stephanie DeVries, Zogby assistant director of communications, told CNA in a Monday e-mail.
According to Zogby, McCain gained eight-tenths of a point among all likely voters, while Obama lost one full point.
The Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby three-day tracking poll of 1,206 likely voters was conducted over a three-day period, with about 400 respondents interviewed each day. It claims a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percent.
