...But the electoral college still looks bleak.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows Barack Obama attracting 50% of the vote while John McCain earns 46%. It's the first time since September 25 that McCain's support has reached 46%, but Obama has now enjoyed a four-to-eight point advantage for twenty-one straight days (see trends).
This polling doesn't include last nights debate.
Gallup has Obama up 6 among registered voters, up 6 among a group they call "expanded" likely voters, and up only 2 among traditional likely voters (inside the margin of error).
Update: Due, no doubt, to the vagaries of keyword spidering, both the New York Times Caucus Blog and the Yahoo! News Election 2008 front page have linked to this post. I think Yahoo! must pull feeds from the NYT.
To bad it wasn't a better post.
