Fresh from his highly touted, well-publicized world tour last week, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama has never looked more presidential. Yet despite his rock star appeal and relentless media coverage, a new USA Today/Gallup national poll showed John McCain leading Barack Obama among likely voters 49%-45%.
