The latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update on registered voters' presidential preferences shows Barack Obama with a modest four percentage point advantage over John McCain, 47% to 43%.

I know it's meaninless.....

Obama has walked into a typical GOP trap.

He is now defending himself about silly things like tire pressure,etc and this is exactly what GOP wants.

One anti Obama book after another are coming out all written by pro GOP authors .
The GOP slander mean machine is just getting started .

Gee, what a thing to brag about...

There'd be a lot more hope for this country if people bragged about their candidate by saying "the ideas and plans and solutions are just getting started."

Obama's numbers are also up in Rasmussen (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/daily_presidential_tracking_poll - broken link) albeit slightly. He has now taken back the lead 45%-43% with leaners 47%-46%.

Why is it that with so much negativity directed by Obama in the primary and with all being directed at him now McCain is still unable to gain any sort of lead in polling or even be ahead for three days other then in a Fox (tee hee) Poll. He may well go in the record books as the first of his gender/race to lose to someone who wasn't of the same. Now that is a big wow for the McCain legacy.
Yup I know I played the card.
yup

The republican party is not FOR, nor do they have any, ideas, plans, solutions, ...the republican party will try to win again on slander, the bumper sticker mentality of their followers, lies, smear campaigns, and nastiness....




AND ..........if the Democrats don't get down in the mud and start throwing MORE of it FIRST.... they won't win.....

I agree and the worse is yet to come however the Dem party has to fight back with ads NOT Obama.

Obama needs to stay the course not get pulled into a tit for tat war this is what the GOP wants.

Kerry was swift boated because the DNC didnt even respond with ads they let it go .

The DNC cant let it go again but the candidate cant get caught up in stupidity .
