The latest InsiderAdvantage/Poll Position survey in Ohio suggests an even tie in the race. As Sen. McCain struggled with his response to last week’s economic news, his support among segments of the voting population that might seem vulnerable to a weak economy declined. Among males, McCain dropped from a 56%-to-41% in our survey released September 11, to a 51%-to-43% lead in the most recent survey. The most distressing news for the McCain camp comes from senior voters and independents. In our last survey McCain enjoyed a more typical 52%-to-41% lead among voters age 65 and over. In this latest survey McCain and Obama are even with 46% of the senior vote each. Finally, among those who describe themselves as "independent" as to their political affiliation, McCain dropped from a significant 51%-to-34% advantage, to a less impressive 49%-to-42% lead.
