Quinnipiac: McCain Gains in Key Battleground States

Original Link: http://politicalwire.com/archives/2008/07/24/quinnipiac_mccain_gains_in_key_battleground_states.html

Sen. John McCain has inched ahead of Sen. Barack Obama in Colorado; come within inches in Minnesota and narrowed the gap in Michigan and Wisconsin, according to four simultaneous Quinnipiac polls of likely voters in these battleground states.

In Colorado, McCain leads 46% to 44%.
In Michigan, Obama leads 46% to 42%.
In Minnesota, Obama leads 46% to 44%.
In Wisconsin, Obama leads 50% to 39%.

Most interesting finding: "Voters in each state say energy policy is more important than the war in Iraq. And by margins of 22 to 31 percentage points, voters in each state support offshore oil drilling, and by seven to 12-point margins, drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge."

Quinnipiac is republican biased poll that always favors republicans by 5-15% points when in reality they may be dead even or up by a couple of points. They are so wildly inaccurate the press is doing a disservice by reporting their lopsided results.
