More bad karma for McCain:

Despite all the drama over Obama’s church and his former pastor’s inflammatory remarks, 40% said they felt he was more comfortable talking about his religious beliefs versus 34% for McCain. And in evidence that McCain has some work to do shoring up social conservative voters, when asked which of the candidates “is closest to your views on so-called values issues, such as abortion and gay marriage,” McCain edged out Obama by just a single percentage point 40% to 39%, even though 51% of respondents opposed gay marriage.
