Update: McCain +10 among likely voters; Can Obama get out out the youth vote? New: A telling graph

USA Today publishes a report on their recent polling with Gallup as their partner.
In the new poll, taken Friday through Sunday, McCain leads Obama by 54%-44% among those seen as most likely to vote. The survey of 1,022 adults, including 959 registered voters, has a margin of error of +/— 3 points for both samples.
McCain is +4 among registered voters. Barack Obama needs a GOTV strategy like one never seen before. Or, he needs 60 days of the best campaign ever. Probably a whole lot of both.

Here's a grandiose start.

BRAND: “Now, as a representative of the global community and a visitor from abroad, I don’t want to come across a little bit biased, but could I please ask of you people of America, to PLEASE ELECT BARACK OBAMA. Please! On behalf of the world. (Camera pans to singers Chris Brown and Britney Spears applauding and cheering.) Some people, I think they’re called racists, say that America is not ready for a black president. But I know America to be a forward-thinking country, right. Because, otherwise, you know, would you have let that retarded cowboy fellow be president for eight years?

We were very impressed. It was nice of you to let him have a go. Because in England, George Bush wouldn’t be trusted with a pair of scissors.

I am obliged by broadcasting law to show some balance in this situation, which means, uh, the Republicans might be alright. Sarah Palin. She’s a VILF! A vice president I’d like to…fumble, fondle, I dunno. I do feel a little bit sorry for her daughter, getting pregnant, poor kid. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? It’s a P.R. stunt. Come on. Be honest.

Enjoy the ride folks.

Update: A timely graph can help here. Notice the deduction from the "Other" and the addition to "McCain". Are those wily undecideds now decided? (HT: Mark Silva at "The Swamp")
