So much for Berlin! Rasmussen’s Daily Tracking Poll remains at a 2% Obama lead, but Gallup, which had Barack up by 8 points over the weekend, now shows him with just a one point lead.

The race for the presidency has moved back into a statistical tie in the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update of national registered voters, with Barack Obama now ahead of John McCain by just one percentage point, 45% to 44%.

What was the effect, then, of Barack’s World Tour?

“Did Obama’s trip help his standing with the public on foreign policy issues? Not really,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. “Obama has not picked up any ground against McCain on foreign issues, and some 52 percent think McCain would do a better job than Obama on the war in Iraq, virtually the same number who felt that way in April.” Video Watch Obama’s speech in Berlin »

Are Americans ready to embrace Barack as Commander in Chief?

The poll also shows McCain with an edge on terrorism, Iran, Afghanistan and the Middle East. Every foreign policy and national security issue tested tilts toward McCain: terrorism, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Middle East, Iran and immigration.
