Thank you, Sarah Palin for this edition of Freaky Friday. John McCain has claimed a slight lead over presidential opponent Barack Obama. From the AP:

the survey — conducted after both parties staged their conventions and picked their vice presidential candidates — conforms with others that have shown the Republicans grabbing the momentum after a summer in which Obama had steadily maintained a slim lead.

Underscoring how tight the race remains, several swing groups who traditionally help decide presidential races remain about evenly divided between the two tickets. These include independents, married women and Catholics.
