Rasmussen: Obama Has 5 Point Lead

0

Obama – 48%
McCain – 43%

McCain lost another point today, so that’s two days in a row he’s lost a single point and he’s getting dangerously close to dipping below 43, which he hasn’t done yet in this season.

The 5 day:
06/21/2008: McCain – 43%, Obama – 48%
06/20/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 48%
06/19/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 48%
06/18/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 48%
06/17/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 48%

Some thoughts on the national mood:

Obama’s decision to opt out of public funding is likely to have little impact on his standing with voters. Only 30% support public financing of the campaigns and just 16% say the issue is Very Important to their vote. Yesterday, McCain gave a speech extolling the virtues of free trade at a time when most Americans believe the North American Free Trade Agreement needs to be renegotiated. This position is far less popular among voters than the Republican candidate’s recent call for drilling in offshore oil wells.

More tomorrow…
