Rasmussen: Obama Up By 6


Obama – 51%
McCain – 45%

No change today, and with Obama leading by 5 or 6 points in the past 6 days, the race seems to be stabilizing…at least for now.

Also, it appears as if the scary Obama caricature the right-wing painted may have really hurt them because the Obama voters saw at the debate is vastly different than the one they heard about.

Not only that, McCain now enjoys absolutely no advantages when it comes to voter trust. In fact, Obama is leading in most of the categories….

Obama is now trusted more on economic issues by 51% of voters, McCain by 42%. That’s the biggest advantage either candidate has enjoyed on this issue during Election 2008 and the first time either candidate has been trusted more by a majority of voters.

This comes at a time when 48% of voters say that the economy is the top issue while just 20% say that national security is the highest priority.

Obama has nearly eliminated McCain’s advantage on national security issues and the Democrat is now trusted more than McCain on ten other key issues tracked by Rasmussen Reports.

The 5 day:
09/30/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
09/30/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
09/29/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 50%
09/28/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 50%
09/27/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 50%

More tomorrow…
