With all the economic, scandal and foreign policy troubles of this administration in much of the public's mind, ANY democrat should be at least 10-15 percentage points ahead. The fact that the two campaigns are virtually tied, and truth be told, since they sample heavily towards democrats, McCain is probably actually leading in reality, this shows how weak a candidate Obama really is. Does anyone here think that Hillary & McCain would be tied at this point had she been nominated?

First let me say this: Ruh Roh Shaggy...
If Hillary was the nominee, then I think McCain would be losing...

The MSM will start grasping for any straws they can in these polls. Now they are down to polls of polls. Agree hillary would probably be ahead. But I don’t think McCain/Palin just rallied the base either.

I was upset about the latest hit piece on Sarah Palin that appeared on the MSNBC homepage - eight screens telling anecdotes about the time she carried the baby in her arms in an official car instead of using the baby's car seat, about copying her husband with an email about her work situation - I'm telling you, it was sickening.

That Diageo/Hotline has been an outlier poll lately.

I never heard of this one. Anybody knows their track records?

Also, the CBS poll should be thrown out because some of the polling took place before Palin and McCain spoke. The three most recent polls show a Rasmussen tie
, Zogby shows McCain ahead by four points
(and it, it seems, includes Barr and Nader), and Gallup shows McCain with a three point lead
(including, it seems, Barr and Nader).

"All of the surveys included in our national polling average were conducted at least in part during the Republican Convention,"
This statement nullifies any speculation regarding a "bounce." This poll report can't address the effect of events take took place at the RNC, since the polls occurred before the convention was completed.

I see CNN stays does not utilize Rasmussen’s results. Then again, screw CNN, I only go to realclearpolitics.com

The only reason Obama is ahead here is because one of the polls (Hotline) they are using has Obama up by 6, but was taken during the convention before the Palin effect took hold.
