So sure McCain says not to count him out yet, and that his polling model shows him closer than what is flying around out there but
Pew had them at an Obama lead of 14% just 5 days ago... so an 8 point gain in 5 days.... 3 days left. And if as McCain believes that their polling breakdown isn't correct for true turnout i'm starting to feel a lot more confident about a McCain presidency. Whew.Pew Research: Obama +6

Pew Research is out with its final pre-election poll. After allocating undecideds nearly evenly between the two candidates, Pew is projecting Obama will finish with 52% of the vote on Tuesday to 46% for John McCain.
Prior to allocating undecideds, Pew reported its final survey results as follows:
Barack Obama holds a significant lead over John McCain in the final days of Campaign 2008. The Pew Research Center's final pre-election poll of 2,587 likely voters, conducted Oct. 29-Nov. 1, finds 49% supporting or leaning to Obama, compared with 42% for McCain; minor party candidates draw 2%, and 7% are undecided.
This represents an 8-point move towards McCain from Pew's survey released five days ago showing Obama with a 15-point lead over McCain among likely voters, 53 to 38, as compared to today's 7-point margin, 49 to 42.
