Obama gains a bit today as he continues to hold the slim lead he has for most of the general election season. The question I have to ask myself now is “Why hasn’t McCain been able to breakthrough?”

However, Rasmussen suggests that some underlying trends could be favoring McCain…

While the race for the White House remains stable, there is movement beneath the surface. The number of voters who say McCain is too old for the job has declined while the number who say Obama is too inexperienced has moved up a bit. Voters are now evenly divided as to whether Obama has enough experience for the job.
