I almost choked on my coffee this morning when I saw this. With now an entire polling cycle under his belt post-debate, Obama has gained significant ground. Rasmussen was the result I was most interested in:
Obama 52, McCain 44
Research 2000/Daily Kos
Obama 52, McCain 40
Obama 50, McCain 42
Holy cow! Up again from yesterday! Now, I understand that Rasmussen re-weighted their polls to reflect a .6 net increase in party affiliation in the Democrats’ favor, but they had previously been the most conservative polling firm in terms of these numbers. Even more fun is that Barack Obama is winning more Republicans than McCain is Democrats- and has pulled to an eleven point lead over McCain in independents.
Of course, you know what that means, don’t you?
