Poll: Obama Holding Up Well Under Attacks On His Character September 18, 2008

There’s a lot in the internals of the new New York Times poll to chew over, but I wanted to highlight a few numbers that seem to suggest that Obama’s holding up pretty well under the withering assault on his character the McCain campaign has hit him with for months now.

Despite the months of attacks designed to portray him as an elitist and culturally out of touch with ordinary Americans, here are some of the findings:

* Obama’s favorable rating of 45% is a shade higher than McCain’s of 44%. And in this poll Obama’s fave numbers are up six points since August.

* Sixty percent think Obama “understands the needs and problems of people like yourself” — compared to only 48% who say the same about McCain.  Source Article
