Sick Of Hearing About Obama And McCain? You're Not Alone, Says New Poll

A new poll suggests nearly half of those surveyed are already tired of hearing about Barack Obama, with Election Day still three months away.      

According to the poll by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center, 48 percent say they're hearing too much about Obama. Just 26 percent say the same about John McCain.      

Two-thirds of Republicans and about half of the independents surveyed say they've heard too much about Obama, as have a third of Democrats.      

At the same time, nearly four in 10 say they've been hearing too little about McCain -- about four times the number who say so about Obama. About half of Republicans, four in 10 independents and even a quarter of Democrats say they've not heard enough about McCain.      

(The poll was conducted from Aug. 1-4 and involved telephone interviews with 1,004 adults. It had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.)
