Rasmussen: Obama Up By 5

0

Obama – 50%
McCain – 45%

Obama loses one today, and McCain pulls within a margin he had about 10 days ago.

Some recent polls like Hotline/Diaego and Zogby have shown a much tighter race, but Zogby’s credibility is shot at this point and Hotline/Diaego is very new and samples far fewer than either Rasmussen or Gallup. This is also why I’m not showing the Research 2000/Daily Kos tracking poll that has Obama leading by 10.

Rasmussen shares some numbers about demographics and national mood…

Obama now leads by 13 points among women but trails by two among men. Among White Women, it’s McCain 48% Obama 47%.

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Obama leads by seven.

Just 10% of voters believe the country is heading in the right direction. Eighty-seven percent (87%) say we’ve gotten off on the wrong track.

The 5 day:
10/09/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 50%
10/08/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
10/07/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 52%
10/06/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 52%
10/05/2008: McCain – 44%, Obama – 51%

More tomorrow…
