Forty-eight percent of registered voters are uncomfortable about McCain’s age, a new high. And while [Barack] Obama has advanced since mid-June in the sense that he’s a “safe” choice for president, to 55 percent, McCain has lost ground on this measure; 51 percent now see him as safe, down 6 points.
Obama continues to trounce McCain on enthusiasm. Sixty-one percent of Obama’s supporters are very enthusiastic about their choice, vs. 38 percent of McCain’s.
