Latest Presidential PollsSeptember 28, 2008
First up: Research 2000/Daily Kos Tracking poll. 1,100 polled, +/-3%
Senator Obama (50%) leading Senator McCain (43%) by a touchdown and an extra point.
Gallup has Senator Obama trotting away, leading Senator McCain by 8 points, 50% to 42% (+/-2%)
And last, but not least, Rasmussen. 3,000 likely voters with a MoE of 2% has Senator Obama with a commanding 6 point edge over Senator McCain.
There’s a long way to go, so any giddiness you have, please temper it with thoughts of the Swift Boat campaign, and the other despicable and cowardly tactics that the Republicans are notorious for.
And did you see the favorable/unfavorable rating of Palin!? She’s tanking. A lot of pundits say that people don’t vote according to the bottom of the ticket, but I strongly believe that this is the exception to the rule. It has shown a severe lack of judgement on Senator McCain’s part, and that’s what he was trying to run on. So much for judgement and experience, hello cynicism and political gimmickry!
