Rasmussen: Obama Up By 7

1

Obama – 51%
McCain – 44%

With 8 days of 50% or more support, Obama is now firmly in the lead.

The details…

Nationally, the number of voters who believe the country is heading in the right direction has fallen to 10%. That’s down dramatically from the already low level of 24% just before Lehman Brothers collapsed and started the recent Wall Street debacle. Eighty-six percent (86%) now say that the nation has gotten off on the wrong track.

Obama is viewed favorably by 57% of voters, McCain by 52%. Forty-five percent (45%) believe taxes will go up if Obama is elected while 24% say the same about a McCain victory.

What’s interesting is McCain might actually be setting up Obama for some big wins if he gets elected. Because if that many people think their taxes will go up in an Obama administration and they actually go down, well, guess who benefits?

The 5 day:
10/03/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 51%
10/02/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 51%
10/01/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
09/30/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
09/29/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 50%
