McCain Opens Double Digit Lead

HT to Alex at PAWaterCooler. USA Today/Gallup poll shows McCain with a 50-46 lead over Barack Obama amongst registered voters.

However, when you look at likely voters later in the article, the poll shows McCain with a 54-44 lead. Contrast that with the same poll (see RealClearPolitics charts here) taken at the end of the Democratic convention, where Barry held a 7 point lead. Prior to both conventions, the poll showed Obama with a 3 point lead.

Obama's bounce of 4 points following the DNC convention pales to the McCain/Palin bounce of 17 after the GOP had the chance to set the record straight.

Ladies and gentleman, the tide has turned.
