With the perfect storm that has hit the market over the past several days, one would expect the McCain-Palin ticket to be down by double digits to Obama and Biden, who can just smile at the stock ticker. But the latest poll numbers show that, in fact, the race has tightened up considerably.
Democrat Barack Obama has a narrow 3-point lead in the U.S. presidential race on Republican John McCain less than a month before the election, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Tuesday.

"Obama is leading among the key target groups, but this race is nowhere close to over," pollster John Zogby said. "The deal is far from closed."
McCain and Palin are within striking distance, and a solid debate performance by McCain tonight might be all that is needed to erase Obama's remaining minuscule lead.
