Are Hillary and Obama Destroying the Dems' Chances in November?

Obama's big national lead over Clinton has all but evaporated, and both Democrats trail McCain, according to a new Reuters/Zogby poll.

In recognition of the first notice I've seen that it's in the bag for McCain, I'm cross-posting a comment I made "over home" at Blondesense:
To Wit:

As I opined a couple of weeks ago, the two Democrats are going to spend so much time and energy beating the shit out of each other, that it will enable McCain to walk off with the election:
Reuters: "Democrat Barack Obama's big national lead over Hillary Clinton has all but evaporated in the U.S. presidential race, and both Democrats trail Republican John McCain, according a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday."
'Course, maybe Barack & Hillary are getting paid to take a dive.
I've said in the past that I'd rather have our guys front and center with John McCain begging to get on the stage. Heck, the polls aren't even as bad as Peter claims, at least according to this writer at DKos. There's plenty of time in September and October to ratchet up his negatives. But Peter's point is the prevailing view, that Obama and Clinton are going to make each other unelectable unless we can get a winner here soon. Worse, I suppose, is the way the Obama/Clinton race is effecting families. From Crain's New York:
