First Two Tracking Polls of the Day Are Out

Rasmussen and Research 2000 have published their polls this morning, and the great news is that Rasmussen, for the first time, sees Obama moving ahead of McCain:

Obama 48
McCain 47

Rasmussen observes, "While Obama’s lead is statistically insignificant, it is the first time he has held even a single-point advantage in a week-and-a-half. One week ago today, McCain was up by three points."

Research 2000/Daily Kos sees the race differently:

Obama 50
McCain 42

Their analysis of the race yesterday was that it was a seven point spread, and of course, today, it is an eight-point spread. So, Rasmussen and Research 2000 seem to agree that, whatever the difference in their numbers, Obama is moving up.
