McCain Now Up by 10 Points

When pollsters want to inflate the prospects of
Democratic candidates, they don’t report the responses
of likely voters only. Because that changes the results

The Republican National Convention has given John
McCain and his party a significant boost, a USA
TODAY/Gallup Poll taken over the weekend shows, as
running mate Sarah Palin helps close an “enthusiasm
gap” that has dogged the GOP all year.

McCain leads Democrat Barack Obama by 50%-46% among
registered voters, the RepublicanÙs biggest advantage
since January and a turnaround from the USA TODAY
poll taken just before the convention opened in St.

In the new poll, taken Friday through Sunday, McCain
leads Obama by 54%-44% among those seen as most
likely to vote.

In this case, the differential is probably understated
because conservative turnout is likely going to set
records given the enthusiasm over Sarah Palin.

The key demographic: McCain is leading among white
women 53 percent to 41 percent (from a different poll).
