Default Rasmussen: Obama-51% McCain-45%

This is the first day in which all the numbers are completely post debate.



Rasmussen Reports™: The most comprehensive public opinion coverage ever provided for a presidential election. (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/daily_presidential_tracking_poll - broken link)


Obama is now trusted more on all ten major issues...even Iraq. That debate worked wonders.

Quote:
Women continue to trust Obama more across the board, in many instances by sizable majorities. The gap, however, has narrowed dramatically in some cases among men, who have been more favorable to McCain. Men, for example, are now evenly divided at 47% each over which candidate they trust more on the Iraq war.

Yup, Obama is on an upward path and pulling away from McCain.

This after the foreign policy debate that was supposed to be McCain's life-sustaining shot in the arm.

Wow, just wow.

Every time Palin opens her mouth Obama gains another point in another poll. I haven't seen any "Sarah Palin is a goddess" polls lately nor any of the usual Palindrones on her to defend her.

Lucky for her and the repubs the debate was changed to help her weakness which is thinking for herself. "Hear the question, answer how we told you and shut up". Those are her instructions.

Yes indeed - and gaining ground nearly every single day.
In battleground states where McCain leads, his lead is shrinking.
In battleground states that are borderline, they are moving into Obama's camp
In battleground states where Obama leads, his lead is increasing.

EVERYTHING is (at least at the moment) moving in Obama's direction.

And from a right-leaning pollster that skews slightly Republican, no less.

Jesse Helm's state has flipped toward Obama. Can you believe it?

Well good to see Obama at that magic threshold I was hoping for. Now if he can continue to poll at least 49% the rest of the way. McCain needs to hit that 50% threshold and then it will be interesting.
