McCain – 40%

Looks like Obama is getting some of his mojo back after a slight dip last week. Or could this be fallout from Phil Gramm’s gaffe and McCain’s clumsy move away from his top economic advisors?

Rasmussen has some thoughts…

A review of Rasmussen Reports full week tracking confirms the slight tightening of the race. Seven-day tracking shows less volatility than three-day tracking and is based upon interviews with 7,000 Likely Voters each week.

For the first five weeks after clinching the Democratic nomination, Obama led McCain 49% to 44% in every week but one. The sole exception found Obama ahead 49% to 43%. However, for the seven days ending July 13, Obama leads McCain 47% to 45%.

The 5 day w/leaners:
07/15/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 47%
07/14/2008: McCain – 46%, Obama – 47%
07/13/2008: McCain – 46%, Obama – 46%
07/12/2008: McCain – 46%, Obama – 47%
07/11/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 47%

The 5 day w/o leaners:
07/15/2008: McCain – 40%, Obama – 44%
07/14/2008: McCain – 42%, Obama – 44%
07/13/2008: McCain – 43%, Obama – 43%
07/12/2008: McCain – 43%, Obama – 43%
07/11/2008: McCain – 42%, Obama – 43%

One last note…40% ties the lowest McCain has gone in the “w/o leaners” numbers, so if he starts to dip below that, it could be somewhat significant as far as momentum goes.

More tomorrow…
