“With your help, we can win. … We need a new direction, and we have to fight for it,” McCain said, urging voters to volunteer in the final hours of campaigning.
“Two days, two days to victory,” he said to roaring applause.
With two days left until the election, Obama holds a 6-point lead over McCain, 50 to 44 percent, according to CNN’s average of national polls.
Six percent of respondents said they are still undecided.
Obama has maintained a steady lead over the last month, but CNN Polling Director Keating Holland cautioned against assuming the election is over.
“Keep in mind that this is not a prediction of the final outcome,” Holland said. “That’s not an easy task with two full days of campaigning to go, in a country in which roughly one in 10 voters tend to make up their minds in the last few days.”
