The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Barack Obama attracting 48% of the vote while John McCain earns 43%. When "leaners" are included, it’s Obama 51%, McCain 45%. This is the highest level of support enjoyed by Obama at any point in Election 2008 (see recent daily results

Even John Kerry was up by 15% at this time.

6% apart is one of the lowest leads at this time in modern history.

I think I would be worried if I were you.

Even you know it should be at least 10% apart.

You're happy about +6?

You better hope he has AT LEAST a 10% lead on the eve of election. Why?

Bradley effect.

teeeee heeee, is this Obama bounce 2 or McCain deflation 1. Why is this important? Why?

Because:

McCain nuts were bragging over the weekend about how brilliant McCain was with his bounce killer selection of Palin. Oh yeah go back and read the threads.
Teeeee Heeeee, may not last but oh well the teee heee is only in response to other posters blustering
Teeeee Heeeeee
As I have posted before, neither candidate had previously crossed the magical 50% threshold and now one has. That means if the election had been held yesterday Obama would have won regardless of undecided voters. It may all change but Palin is no Hillary. She is a Pat Buchannan and has helped with that element of the American population.
