ARG prez pol

The New Hampshire-based American Research Group polling company has weighed in on the Obama-McCain race in Vermont, and it's smack dab in between polls done earlier in September by Rasmussen Reports poll and by Research 2000 for WCAX-TV.

ARG's numbers, based on a poll done between Sept. 18-22 (that's pre-debate and pre-McCain's campaign suspension gambit) gave Obama 56 percent and McCain 38 percent. The Research 2000 poll was 55%-36% Obama. The Rasmussen Reports poll had it 60%-36% for Obama in Vermont. For a peak at the demographic breakdown of voting preferences in the ARG, click HERE.

ARG's numbers sometimes seem to tilt more to the right than some other polls, but then, this newest poll is based on responses from 600 likely Vermont voters, with an error margin of 4 percentage points. That's a larger survey than either Rasmussen or Research 2000, and Research 2000 did not even screen for likely voters.

PS: Still waiting for Rasmussen's poll results on Vermont's race for governor. ARG did not poll the guv race.
