According to the latest Democracy Corps national survey of 1,014 likely voters conducted May 13-15, 2008, Barack Obama holds a narrow two-point lead over John McCain. While this amounts to a statistical tie, a deeper analysis of the current survey, as well as data from our March and April national surveys, shows that Obama is in a better position than McCain to expand his share of the vote. Our previous memo, “Obama Emerging Ahead in Close Race," explored the macro forces and the issue terrain that will shape the Obama-McCain general election and showed that Obama's central message of change versus the Bush status quo is well-crafted to move an electorate that is looking to change more than anything else. This report explores the demographic groups where Obama is currently facing the most difficulty against McCain, where the “Obama Gap" is greatest.

As the Democratic nomination contest comes to an end, Barack Obama faces a real race, but John McCain faces immediate challenges — faltering popularity, an extremely damaged Republican brand, an imperiled economy, and an evermore unpopular war in Iraq. Still, while Obama is seen as honest and more likely than McCain to break the gridlock in Washington and bring change, he still faces a lot of skepticism on the change he offers.

YFTW: Growing the Youth Vote
Tuesday, May 13 2008

A new "Youth for the Win" survey with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner finds that young voters are on pace to deliver a big Democratic margin in November, but offers two cautions which should drive efforts to engage this group and ensure they deliver. First, while this bloc is solidly Democratic, John McCain is much more popular than Bush or the Republicans; tackling this requires re-branding the Republican nominee as a Republican. Second, the long Democratic nominating process has sapped young voters' enthusiasm; there needs to be major healing after this nomination is settled.

YFTW: The MySpace Election
Monday, May 05 2008

A new survey of young voters, the first in a series of "Youth for the Win" projects, confirms that this emerging group is deeply engaged in the 2008 election. The report, released in cooperation with Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, finds that not only will young people vote in record numbers this year -- 54 percent say their likelihood of voting is a 10 on a 10-point scale -- but that the Internet plays a critical role in both how they get their information, and how they participate in the campaign.
