We’re gonna have bright, bright, bright sun shiny days!
Rasmussen reports this morning:
The numbers yesterday and the day before were, 50-46, that is, Obama’s number improved by one and McCain’s declined by one.
The stability of Obama’s advantage in recent weeks suggests that it will be difficult for McCain to change the dynamic before the results are finally set in stone.
Research 2000/Daily Kos reports this morning:
The numbers over the last couple of day were 50-42.
On successive individual days in the R2K poll (different than the topline, which is a combined three day sample), Obama was up +8 Sun, +9 Mon and +12 Tues.
Zogby sees McCain’s number remaining stable but Obama’s rising by two points from his position yesterday:
Yesterday, the numbers were 50-42. Zogby sees Obama’s strength coming from his dominance among Democrat and independents while he holds his own among Republicans:
Obama leads McCain by 15 points among independent voters (50% to 35%), and is also winning 12% of the Republican vote, all the while retaining a firm grip on his Democratic base, winning 87% support from members of his own party.
Zogby also has some other interesting trends that indicate our reason for hope is based in reality:
Time is running short for McCain. These numbers, if they hold, are blowout numbers. They fit the 1980 model with Reagan’s victory over Carter . . . . If Obama wins like this we can be talking not only victory but realignment.
Diageo Hotline reports their numbers this morning:
The numbers yesterday were 47-41. Today’s numbers put the spread back to where they were two days ago, suggesting the ongoing stability of Obama’s lead.
I think we are beginning to see that Colin Powell’s endorsement went a long way to reassuring Americans that Barack Obama is worthy of our trust.
