In a hopeful sign for the GOP contender, John McCain now leads Barack Obama 49%-45% among "likely voters" in the latest USA Today/Gallup Poll. Obama still leads among registered voters 47%-44% but that three-point lead is down from a six-point lead a month ago. The margin of error here is 4% so the presidential race is now a statistical dead heat.
