The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Barack Obama attracting 50% of the vote while John McCain earns 44%. This six-point advantage matches Obama's biggest lead yet. Obama is now viewed favorably by 56% of voters, McCain by 54%.

I have predicted on CD from day one that if the economy falters as predicted before the election, McCain has no hope of winning. Regardless of whether Obama's populist platform is good or not is irrelevant.

The lead will get wider since the economic implosion is occurring a little quicker and with higher intensity than I predicted.

Obama needs to promise, "I won't be your next Hoover."

After two stolen presidential elections, 2000 and 2004, I fully expect voting irregularities in the 2008 presidential election.

Polling numbers are much more accurate than voting results.

That anyone still supports one of the most unfit candidates to ever run for President, to say nothing of 44% of Americans, shows how education must be a priority under President Obama.

Diego is a very erratic poll so it always fluctuates daily, Obama isn't loosing anything.

Rasmussen is more stable and is it shows a very clear Obama trend.

LOL. Erratic? Gallup went from Obama + 3, to a tie, to obama +3 - all in the span of three days.

The polls are all over the place.

But the poll AVERAGE is pretty clearly in Obama's favor - and has had it so for NEARLY the entire time since early in the year.

Could that change?
Of course.
But largest, most well-respected polls show a definite trend towards Obama.
