First Two Tracking Polls of the Day are Out

Rasmussen has its percentages and margins from yesterday holding steady:

Obama 50
McCain 44

Rasmussen comments:
This six-point advantage matches Obama’s biggest lead yet and marks the first time he has held such a lead for two-days running.
Research 2000/Daily Kos also is up, and it shows that Obama improved his standing:

Obama 50
McCain 43

The numbers yesterday were Obama, 49 and McCain 43, so this is a one point increase. As you know, each of the tracking polls includes data from three days of findings, so the polls include two days prior to the debate and one day after the debate. Only Research 2000/Daily Kos reveals each day's individual results. DemFromCT observes:
Yesterday's polling, the first after the debate, was the strongest Obama day picked up by the R2K tracking poll. He led 51-42, and therefore, Obama had a +9 on Sa to go with +5 Th, +7 Fri.
While the three-day tally has a standard error of +/-3.0, the finding from any one day has a possible standard error of +/-5.1, so we shouldn't read too much into Saturday's individual findings.
