WaPo-ABC Tracking: Facing Off on Leadership

New Washington Post-ABC News daily tracking data finds Barack Obama and John McCain once again about evenly matched on who would be the stronger leader. Obama continues to hold a wide lead as the candidate better able to bring needed change to Washington.

Earlier in the month, Obama had opened up a lead over McCain as the stronger leader, cracking 50 percent for the first time on the question in mid-October. Now, 49 percent chose Obama, 46 percent McCain.

Since his low-point on the question, McCain has made gains on this question among white voters, shifting a near even split (47 percent favored the senator from Arizona, 45 percent Obama in mid-October), to a double-digit advantage (53 percent for McCain, 42 percent Obama).

On bringing needed change, the Illinois Democrat holds a nearly 2 to 1 advantage, 60 percent to 34 percent.

Q: Regardless of whom you may support, who do you think...

Would do more to bring needed change to Washington?


Is the stronger leader?

They keep saying they are against gay marriage, but every time I see Bush and McCain together , they have their hands all over each other.

Boy, those pie charts sure look like the Obama For America logo. Could be the makings of yet another conspiracy theory. Call Drudge, quick!
