John McCain has moved ahead of Barack Obama in the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking, 48% to 45%, following last weeks Republican convention. This is McCains best showing since May.More ...

What a BS website.
How sad that within 5 days McCain will be declared ineligible and a few days later the Obama will join him...
What about if she's on the ticket in '08?
Obama never stood a chance with mainstream Americans. We should see that more and more in the polls as we near election day.
Love your little zerobama!
I posted 4 references which say the death rate is lower after Saddam, which one do you take issue with
Further, most Americans’ would put freedom ahead of life, (Live Free or Die) so the death argument is bogus anyways. However, assuming its relevant, the death rate even during the war is lower than under Saddam.
Well- all theories aside- I was outside in the garden and the phone rang..came in to answer and lo and behold- it was Rasmussen!
The questions were all sliding scale- preferences for POTUS, if you had to make a really important decision- would you ask McCain or Obama for advice...what is your impression of Biden, Palin, my governor Crist.
Have I ever missed voting when I’ve had the opportunity..
Education, am I female or male- even if I was voting for the Republican- who did I want to win the Dem nom etc.
Took about 10 minutes.

The latest wave of state-by-state polling, market data and national trends have pushed the Rasmussen Reports’ Electoral College projections as close as our daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
The latest numbers from the Rasmussen Reports Balance of Power Calculator show Obama leading in states with 193 Electoral College votes and McCain ahead in states with 183 Electoral College votes. Previously, Obama had enjoyed a 210165 advantage.
Currently, states with 135 Electoral College votes are leaning slightly in one way or the other, and three states with a total of 27 votes — Colorado, Nevada and Virginia — are pure toss-ups.
BYE-BYE Obama! The militant is going down.
What happened to the rest of my post?
Wanted to add the the Obamanation has been trending downward since August.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday, September 7, shows the race for the White House is tied.
In the first national polling results based entirely on interviews conducted after Sarah Palins acceptance speech, Barack Obama gets 46% of the vote and so does John McCain. When “leaners” are included, its all even at 48%. Tracking Poll results are released at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time each day and a FREE daily e-mail update is available.
This past Tuesday, Obamas bounce peaked with the Democrat enjoying a six-percentage point advantage. Before the two conventions were held, Obama had consistently held a one or two point lead over McCain for most of August
One of our FReeper friends had a thread last week and offered them in several different sizes. Be sure to grab yours :)
People at DU and Kos are QQ in their corn flakes. I hope it lasts and is a blowout. Im waiting for the conspiracies to ensue from the moronic libs.
I am not sure if you predictions are based on regression analysis or not, but even so there are state to state differences. So I would still like those state by state current polls.
I can’t wait to see current state polls taken after both conventions.
I wonder how big of a bounce McCain will wind up with Monday, or Tuesday?
You mean the way that the Hillary people allowed Obama to hammer them? Cause he did hammer them and he hammered them good.
That is why we are running against Obama and not Hillary.
Thanks, that's the best news I've had in a long time.
North Dakota a toss up? Bullshit.
There’s no way that’s accurate. What’d North Dakota become lefty overnight?
It’s an online poll. It’s meaningless. Valueless. Worthless.
It sickens me to see that Obama has such a lead in Washington state.
It is the large metropolitan populations around Seattle-Tacoma, Olympia, Vancouver, and Spokane that trend Democrat. Anywhere there are people in large numbers who take government handouts. In the case of Spokane, there are huge numbers of Hispanics, and supposedly a sizable number are illegal aliens here to work in agriculture.
Not quite. They played the race card against the Clintons and the media was in the tank for him. In liberal land those are key. In a general election the right isn’t sensitive to being called racist.
The important thing to correct in terms of these civilian deaths is the cause of the civilian deaths.
The Lancet study — which is probably the most exaggerated estimate we have from the anti/war pro genocide community— estimates that 80-90% of the deaths are the result anti-coalition forces such as Al Qaeda in Iraq.
Loons who cite these studies as evidence against the war, support the killing of innocent Iraqis.
That will strike them as preposterous but is absolutely true. The only credible argument against genocidal intimidation which was being used inside Iraq to stop the emergence of democracy, is American and collaborative Iraqi military force.
By the Left’s own sources, it is not the Coalition that is causing the overwhelming majority of civilian deaths.
Loons who pretend that a suicide bomber who walks into a Mosque and kills 30 FELLOW MUSLIMS is the result of American imperialism is a common rhetorical participant in that killing by falsifying such a claim.
More significantly, the Loon Left is anti Muslim. In refusing to allow American miltiary protection of communities that do not want to be bombed by deranged Islamic Fasicsts like Zarqawi, they also participate in the genocidal agenda of Al Qaeda which primarily means killing tens of thousands of moderate muslims that support the Iraqi government and American security actions.
Anti-war is pro genocide of the Iraqi people. It is jingoism at its very worst.
Where have you been? McCain dropped out over 2 weeks ago. The guy you saw at the Convention and out on the stump is really an Android created by Karl Rove, that MAGNIFICENT BASTARD!!!
Now run on back to the house and get yourself a nice tall glass of Cherry Kool Aide, mom just made it...yummie.
That's easy to answer. Biden is suppose to be the person to hatchet Sarah. Instead, Obama selected three women, Hillary and two governors to hatchet Sarah. Hillary said that she will try but instead she feels that she must spend her time getting demo senators re-elected.
See why Obama is an idiot and also brain dead. LMAO
Me too. I like the state by state polls as a check of sorts on the national polls. I'm just saying that unless the national polls are within 2.5 points (as they often are at this point of a competitive election), the map isn't going to mean much.
Undecideds are asking me what I think of McCain-Palin. I like it. Hopefully, they’ll follow my lead. I was waiting for McCain to pick a VP before I would commit. I’m there cuz of pro-life feminist Palin. She completes the ticket beautifully. I’ll continue to disagree w/McCain on illegal immigration.
Obama’s pulling ads out of the south. He was elite for too long and it’s too late now for him to act like Mr. Rogers.
I believe Hawaii has a Republican governor and Palin lived there once herself.
“Obamas pulling ads out of the south”
Do you have a link for that, by chance?
I thought it was Nov. 4th but we have early voting and those pesky absentee ballots. THAT’s how the dems cheat. They have non-existent people vote absentee.
Had McCain picked Crist, Fla would be in play. Palin was a better choice. Florida’s got lots of problems at the moment. Crist hasn’t proven himself yet as governor.
News crawler Fox or CNN. I took MSNBC off my tv menu re: pulling ads from Georgia. If Obama can’t win Atlanta, he’s in trouble or Savannah...
I have long felt that if mccain/PALIN could take a lead in the polls, it would be pretty much over. Obama has no policies nor a past that he can point to or tout in order to get back into this thing. If the Repubs hold their own in the debates and have a strong GOTV effort, mccain/PALIN should win this thing by upwards of 5%.
I hope that Juans’ health holds out long enough for him to show Sara the rops vis a vis foreign policy.
According to another thread McCain’s doing good in Pennslvania leading amongst blue collar workers 46 to 43 percent.
No Democrat has ever won the Presidency without carrying the Keystone State. And Obama’s elitist comments about the people there being bitter and clinging to God and Guns ain’t helping him very much.
My bet is McCain’s gonna turn Pennslvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota and New Hampshire Red this November. Especially now that Palin’s his running mate.
The more the public learns about Obama, the more they come to realize just how radical he really is.
If the Palins want to come to my house I will cook them anything they want, I’ll even have some fresh moose meat flown in.
Is leading 3% with blue collar workers in PA enough to overcome Philly, and the surrounding suburbs?
I don’t know anything about PA.
I’m not sure. But I think that lead will gradually increase once the public learns more about Obama’s more radical positions such as his support for infanticide.
Lets remember one thing, if it wasn’t for Philledalphia and Pittsburg, Pennslvania would be a solid red state. Lets just hope Obamanation keeps putting his foot in his mouth and lets his elitist nature show.
This means nothing. The Democrats easily have 4-8% FRAUD vote built into the big cities of Philadelphia, Detroit, St. Louis, Miami...and probably 8-10% FRAUD vote built into Chicago.
We have to be stronger, imo.
I'm driving all the way to PA on election day just to wheel my parents into the voting booths -
A friend of mine just told me that the talking heads have all day determined that O has the electoral votes to win. I didn’t watch these shows but this is very disappointing news.
The big ones are FL, OH, VA....must win...
Please sir, the link...
That doesn’t look good (electorals, state by state).
Florida and Virginia should be no problem.
Its Ohio that I’m worried about.
BTW, speaking of Virginia does anyone have any idea how Jim Gilmore’s doing in the Senate election? Does anyone have a good idea as to his chances?
McCain will stay ahead in the polls now.
Obamanation’s crew is quite saddened. <sarc
I also remember a few months ago, Republican challenger John Kennedy was projected to win Mary Landreiu’s Senate seat in Louisiana. Do you know if he still has a good chance to win?
We must work as hard as we can as the MSM/talking heads will do their utmost to upset this ticket. I see the NY Times will lead the pack tomorrow, according to Drudge.
