Ignore if you like but I think they are a snapshot.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll Mccain 48-Obama 45
Friday, September 12, 2008


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows John McCain up by three points, his largest lead since Obama wrapped up the Democratic Presidential Nomination. For most of the past several months, Obama has held a modest lead with McCain slipping ahead by a single point on just three of the past hundred days.

McCain now attracts 48% of the vote while Obama earns 45%. When "leaners" are included, itís McCain 49%, Obama 46%. Yesterday, the candidates were tied

Here was the shocker to me:


Election 2008: Washington Presidential Election
McCain Closes to Within Two Points of Obama in Washington
Friday, September 12, 2008



Washington is the latest state to show a strong western surge for John McCain since he added Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the Republican ticket.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Washington finds Barack Obama still ahead, but barely. Itís Obama 49%, McCain 47%. A month ago, Obama was up by twelve percentage points


Washington state!?

Missouri numbers will be in at noon (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/washington/election_2008_washington_presidential_election)

This isn't a good sign for Obama. He should be up double digits right now. Voters are starting to pay attention, and those late to the party usually vote conservative.

Then those who watched Obama's mumbo-jumbo responses on the Prez Forum last night are wondering if he's READY to be President.

OMG!!!!! Washington State? As in the LEFT COAST??

Geeeeze. That would be a huge loss for Obama.
Even if he only lost by one or two points.
It's still a major loss.

I hope McCain pulls it off!

wasn't it washington that the left stole the governorship in the last gubernatorial election? Don't count on McCain winning there. It will be sufficiently stacked with votes to prevent such a happening.

I think LL was taking a well deserved shot at the poll results and her post was basically intended as a joke. I have no empirical data to base this on but I'd imagine those late to the campaign vote Democratic. Do you have evidence to the contrary?

Here is the Missouri poll:


Election 2008: Missouri Presidential Election
In Missouri, McCain Still on Top (http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/election_20082/2008_presidential_election/missouri/election_2008_missouri_presidential_election)
Friday, August 08, 2008



John McCain continues to enjoy a modest lead over Barack Obama in the race for Missouriís Electoral College votes.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Missouri shows the Republican presidential candidate attracting 51% of the vote while his Democratic opponent earns 45%. This is similar to results from both last month and the month before. In fact, since wrapping up the Republican nomination in early March, McCain has led Obama in every poll but one.

Looks like it's helping in their Gov's race too:

Washington Governor: Rossi Surges Ahead By Six



Republican challenger Dino Rossi has pulled ahead of Governor Christine Gregoire for the first time since February in Washingtonís gubernatorial election. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state finds Rossi leading the incumbent 52% to 46% (see crosstabs).

The latest numbers represent the first time Rossi has received over 50% from voters in Washington. Last month, Gregoire led the race by four points and she has now lost ground in four straight monthly polls. This yearís election is reminiscent of the exciting match up between the two candidates in 2004 that ended with a controversial win for Gregoire that had to be decided by the stateís courts.
