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 ...

Zogby and Gallup on the same page...
This is the...BUMP I CAN BELIEVE IN.
I am from upstate--we still have a mighty hefty share of moonbats. And lots and lots of colleges cracking out mindless drones. (transplanted to Arizona (:)
Registered, voters, not likely voters. +3
"Bradley Effect" +3
"Palin Effect" +3
Overlapping "Bradley Effect" and "Palin Effect" -1.5
About 2 weeks ago when McCain was up by 1 point, Chuck Todd NBC, as well as some at CNN said Gallup tracking poll was no good. Since then it has had Hussein up and they have been quiet about it.
It is a beauty but I would suggest that Texas is not weak GOP as the legend states in the map...
It’s an internet poll on a conservative radio station’s website.
How ironic... The libtards were dancing in the streets claiming Hurricane Gustav would ruin our convention. They just never forecasted Hurriccane Sarah. LOL!!!
So the battle will be in the toss up states. Alas, I live in one so there will be no need to go to another and volunteer...however I would go to a toss up state if needed...
Florida is in the bag for McCain.
The thing best about this is that McCain’s numbers are moving from the lower 40s to the upper 40s.
Very good trend - but we don’t want to peak too soon.
Florida has always been in the bag for McCain IMHO.
Now with Sarah, conservatives are electrified here.
Yeah, like it was in 2000 for Bush.....Florida is a must win for McCain...
I work with a woman who is active in the Dem party, holding fund-raisers and the like. She's one of those kool-aid drinkers who thought the MSM assault would force Palin off the ticket.
I knew it had been a great week when she announced that she'd be leaving work early on Friday because she needed a “mental health break.”
If Himself has to make a campaign stop in NY, it’s over.
There are McCain ads on TV - nothing (yet) from BHO.
The crowds at Cedarburg Wisconsin and Colorado Springs were UNBELIEVABLE!!!
As someone mentioned these are just the registered voters, where dems always lead because they have a bunch of non-voting hippies and college students who tend to not vote when the time comes. If they did a likely voter poll McCain would be up at least a couple of points more.
I think we’ll go for McCain here in Florida- and I think Rove’s numbers from last week pre-Palin are going to begin shifitng.
I know it seems unlikely- but McCain could actually get Michigan. Between the mayor of Detroit and the UNpopularity of their governor- it’s a possibility.
“by tuesday he will be over 50%”
How does the rich man’s party not carry RI, CT, CA and NY?
I refuse to get exuberant since this isn’t Nov 2.
Sorry, I did not see post number #39! I cannot imagine that PA, MI, MN, VA, and FL are “in play”.
The methodology used there says you have to lead 11+ to be considered strong.
This backs up the Zogby poll.
Bounces fade. This one will, too.
I can’t think of anything worse right now than a McCain lead well in excess of 5%. Big leads generate spectacular maneuvers by the opposition (Hillary).
Better that McCain lead by 3% consistently through and including the election.
In addition, they have excellent shot at "Obama" states PA, NM, MN, WI and MI which will take it to 341 EV.
I realize that MI, WI and MN have not gone Republican in a while but "hockey mom" Sarah Palin has put them into play. They love their hockey up there.
Of course, the way things are going, we could do even better than that. However, it is important to curb the overenthusiasm and campaign like we are 10 points behind no matter how much the polls have us ahead.
Crap. Warren Stupidity
Americans are just uninformed. That's why GWB was in the White House for 8 years. Selatius Sep-07-08 05:10 PM
That's the Achilles heel of democracy - an uninformed citizenry... Union Thug
People are idiots. TwilightZone
well when all they hear from the media is how great she is Egnever
I agree with you that they'll drop, but not necessarily on that time frame. TwilightZone
I expect that to continue through tuesday Egnever
Bull$hit n/t malaise
Hmmmmmmm I wonder if they take the Ohio purge of the voter roll into account OmmmSweetOmmm
Paid for reality. This is bull****. DeadManInc
It probably won't last. And Obama is five points ahead overall rocknation
Most of these polls are BS - stop Phred42
Ignore the Gallup like the Pros do chicagoexpat
Bull****. Americans are stupid, but they aren't THAT stupid. AzDar
DU has a thread about this. They are pissed! HAHA!!
... Even if Joe doesn't know it yet.
So that’s why Obama is spending his time attacking Palin. He knew what was coming. His internals must be showing much worse numbers than those.
Don’t forget you guys, bounces go back down unless we really work hard. I want to send more money today. Should we send to the RNC or McCain/Palin, anyone know for sure? Because of the govt funds deal, I want to send where they can use it. Pray every day for our people.
Reads like FreeRepublic does when they see a poll that they don’t like. kind of funny actually.
Interesting....let’s hope it sticks.
Michigan is also a huge gun rights state. The “letters to the editor” Have been hammering Obama here on that issue.
The liberal RAT Governor in MI is about as popular as beer farts in an elevator.
Good news. And, it’s registered voters. We are probably up 7-8 points in likely voters.
This is about where things were in 2004 right after the R convention. Much work to do in the next 60 days. Many ugly attacks from the old media. And much vote fraud to detect and counter.
Great news!!! Finally a lead!! It’s so fun watching the rats squirm:)
Uh, which one, Illinois or Arkansas? The witch isn't my Senator. NY is only her steppingstone, and she slid off when she ran into Oil of Obama.
Wow, he might be up 6-8 come monday. This is very nice to see.”
If we see that the left if not already there will go into full panic mode. Their attacks against Palin will become more strident and any pretext of fairness will be cast aside. Sarah scares them to death and now we’re beginning to see why. They so badly wanted a moderate like a Romney or Ridge who would have sucked the air out of McCain’s campaign. It’s becoming apparent even to them the anointed one is now on the outside looking in. The smell of desperation is in the air and it’s pretty cool.
You are correct. The fighting will however be attack, attack, attack
I check that site sometimes, but the “votemaster” is horribly partisan in his/her “commentary”. Just crap. I don’t trust him/her.
This is a poll of “registered voters”. I’d guess that a poll of “likely voters” would be 3 or 4% better for McCain/Palin. There are very few Republicans who won’t show up on November 4th to vote for Sarah Palin.
They need to take North Dakota and Montana and paint them red...with Palin on the ticket Obama stands NO chance there and his campaign has even said as recent as yesterday they are going to focus on Florida, Ohio, Colorado,Virginia,Wisconsin, and Nevada.
It sounded like they were giving up on Montana, North Dakota, and even New Hampshire.
Good luck with Florida and Colorado. We are going red this time like the last time.
Nothing is for sure...Do not want to discourage anyone... I suggest the goal be to focus state by state, no assumes...
I had heard from a friend in the SF Bay Area that even national polls are heavily influenced by the responses from west coast dems, which favor any democrat by as much as 20%. Are there any facts or numbers to support this? It could go a long way to understanding what is actually happening.
Plus dead folks vote and they vote Democrat!
Which means he’s actually ahead by at least 55-40.
