WaPo-ABC Track, It's a Wrap

The Washington Post-ABC News tracking poll concluded last night after 19 nights of interviewing with Barack Obama ahead of John McCain 53 to 44 percent among likely voters. That is identical to the margin in the track's first release nearly more than two weeks ago.

Over that time, neither candidate's support varied by more than a point in either direction, as the contest stayed within a narrow range of seven to 11 points.

More than 10,000 randomly-selected adults participated in one of these surveys, including more than 2,300 likely voters over the final four nights of the track.

We would like to thank all of our respondents.

Happy voting.

If the 2008 presidential election were being held today, for whom would you vote? (Among likely voters)

I think the election is going to be very close. I discount the polls somewhat seeing I believe many people will not admit to pollsters they do not want to vote for a black. Many times this is direct--in their minds they know they won't vote for a black or subconsciously they find another reason not to vote for the black person. Just yesterday I read of a 67 year old strong Hillary supporter who now feels he can't vote for Obama because he is too socialistic.
