Nader cuts Obama’s lead over McCain with Arab-Americans by only 1%

This report comes from the Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs:

ON OCT. 28, the Arab American Institute released the results of a new Zogby International poll of Arab-American voters showing that Democratic candidate Barack Obama’s substantial lead among Arab American voters had almost doubled since September. The poll also found that Obama’s lead over McCain dropped by only 1 percent when independent candidate Ralph Nader and Libertarian Bob Barr were included in the survey questions.

In addition, approval ratings given to the Bush administration’s performance continued to fall—to 11 percent, from 19 percent in September. The shift in party identification also continued: The Democrat/Republican break was now 54/27.

Obama was leading McCain by a three-to-one margin in both the two-way and four-way match-ups. In the four-way horserace, it was Obama over McCain 64/23; in the four-way, Obama’s advantage was 62/22, with Nader at 6 percent. Projections put Arab Americans voting on Election Day for Obama at 68 percent, McCain at 24 percent, and Nader at seven.
