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?
