Democrat Barack Obama, seeking a history-making victory in a presidential campaign that has captivated the country as few others ever have, maintained a clear advantage over Republican John McCain yesterday as the two made final appeals in battleground states and readied massive get-out-the-vote operations in advance of today’s balloting.

Obama Poll Numbers Reach Record High

On the eve of Election Day, Barack Obama enjoys his biggest advantage yet over John McCain. Obama leads McCain by 7 percentage points in an average of the 15 national polls conducted during the last week. In that average, Obama wins 51% of likely-voter support, while McCain takes 44%.

One survey, a Gallup poll compiled from daily results taken over the weekend, puts Obama’s support at 55% versus 44% for McCain. Those figures, however, do away with undecided voters, who amount to about 5% of those surveyed in the component polls.
