Poll: Fired-up factor favors Obama

 

Could a battered economy, waning enthusiasm for the war in Iraq and President Bush's low approval ratings spell trouble for Sen. John McCain and other Republicans in November? According to a new poll, the answer depends on who you ask.


A new poll shows that most voters believe that Sen. Barack Obama is likely to win in November.

1 of 2 A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, taken June 4-5, shows that there is a large morale gap between Democrats and Republicans.

According to the poll, two-thirds of Obama supporters, or 67 percent, say they're extremely or very enthusiastic about voting for president this year.

But only about one-third, or 34 percent, of McCain supporters feel fired up. The poll question had a sampling error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.

 

Thanx in advance!
