Ugh, IBD-TIPP...

Well, I guess yesterday was a fluke. Their numbers today pretty much reverted back to Monday's.

Obama 47%
McCain 44%


I guess the silver lining here is that aside from their occasional wild swings both ways, IBD & TIPP have shown a fairly stable 3-4% Obama lead. And if the most pessimistic pollster has Obama ahead 3% nationally while most of the rest have a 5-10% Obama lead, then we're not really in all that bad shape less than a week out from the election. ;-)

Obama has been at three or four points in this poll for most of the election cycle. We should never lose sight of the fact that the Obama campaign always has predicted (and planned) that the race would tighten at the end, and so far today, the averages of polls haven't shown any movement to McCain. If it weren't for that Rasmussen poll, we all would be a little less nervous.

DC-

True. Other than the inexplicable drop in Rasmussen, everything else looks stable. I guess I shouldn't have hyperventilated so much this morning. ;-)

Obama's numbers didn't drop in Rasmussen; McCain's rose. So far, Obama seems to be holding his own. Obama is hanging tough; we need to be there for him, absolutely single-minded just as he is.
