Nader got 3 percent.
In a mid-May EPIC-MRA poll, McCain was at 44 percent while Obama

The polls were conducted for The Detroit News and TV stations

plus or minus four percentage points.
A mid-June poll conducted by Quinnipiac University for the Wall
Street Journal and The Washington Post had Obama at 48 percent and
McCain at 42 percent. The margin of sampling error was plus or
