(CNSNews.com) – The latest Gallup poll shows the presidential race tied at 46 percent each for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
That means McCain gained ground after falling three points behind Obama
The poll included one night after McCain announced he was suspending his campaign to help find a bipartisan solution to the economic crisis.
The poll does not suggest McCain had a dramatically better night than Obama on Wednesday, Gallup reported. It does show, however that McCain has been doing slightly better for the past three days compared to a week ago.
This marks the first report since Sept. 13-15 where Obama did not have at least a one-point advantage.
The poll was taken Sept. 22-24 from interviews with 2,731 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points.
