Obama, McCain Tied in Rural Battleground in October

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research recently compiled data from rural voters in 13 battleground states on behalf of the Center for Rural Strategies. These results show a dead-heat among rural voters through the month of October (46 Obama, 45 percent McCain) and represent a dramatic swing from McCain’s lead among these voters in September (51 – 41 percent McCain) and May (50 – 41 percent McCain).
