Of course when I ask a question I know the answer:
CNN poll: Bush maintains 7-point lead over Gore - October 29, 2000
WASHINGTON (CNN) - GOP presidential candidate Texas Gov. George W. Bush continued to maintain an advantage over Democratic Vice President Al Gore in Sunday's CNN/USA Today/Gallup tracking poll.

Forty-nine percent of respondents said they supported Bush while 42 percent said they would vote for Gore, no change at all from Saturday's poll.

And remember Gore did win the popular vote which the polls were measuring. Remember? Thus it was Bush with a lead who lost the popular vote not Gore as stated above. Perhaps October 29 is not close enough to today to be acceptable.

Perhaps is a closer date to reflect what really did happen.
CNN poll: Bush, Gore tied at 45 percent - October 1, 2000
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- It can't get any closer than this: Sunday's CNN/USA Today/Gallup tracking poll shows Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore tied with his GOP rival, George W. Bush, at 45 percent.

October 1 2000 maybe just maybe. Thus the question what date and what poll had Gore up 8 points?

It really depends on WHO gets out to vote - if all those Dems who have been registering, including those young people, actually get out to vote, Obama has it.

If not, well, it's a toss-up.
