First two trackers of the day

Rasmussen reports the same eight point race he saw yesterday:

Obama 52
McCain 44

Rasmussen sees the race as essentially frozen for nearly the last two weeks. He observes:
This is the second straight day that Obama has led by eight percentage points, his largest lead of the year. For the past twelve days, Obama’s support has ranged from 50% to 52% while McCain has been at 44% of 45% every day.
Research 2000/Daily Kos likewise essentially sees the race as static, with Obama where he has been for the prior three days and McCain rising one point from 40 yesterday to 41 today:

Obama 52
McCain 41

According to these two polls, it's an eight to 11 point race at the moment, and the data that is coming from state-level polls seems to support such a conclusion.
