McCain – 48%

Without leaners
Obama – 46%
McCain – 46%

Today’s numbers are revealing as they give us a sense that perhaps McCain’s bounce may have only closed the gap with Obama, but hasn’t really propelled him into any lead. And as those who follow these daily polls know, they represent a much steadier, accurate portrayal of how the race is shaping up.

Still, if McCain is able to hold his bounce, this race is tied.

Meanwhile, Rasmussen shares favorability numbers…

Throughout Election 2008, opinions have always been stronger about Obama than McCain. However, that gap is not as wide as it used to be. Thirty-seven percent (37%) of voters have a Very Favorable opinion of Obama while 28% have a Very Unfavorable view. For McCain, those numbers are now 29% Very Favorable and 20% Very Unfavorable.
