Rasmussen: Obama Up By 6

0

Obama – 51%
McCain – 45%

Obama loses 1 today, and McCain holds steady for the past five days.

Why’s Obama leading? Two words: women, independents…

Obama leads by fourteen percentage points among women while McCain leads by two among men.

Both men lead by an 86% to 12% margin among members of their own party while Obama holds an eight point advantage among unaffiliated voters.

And the electoral projections…

Currently, Obama has the edge in every state won by John Kerry four years ago. However, of the states won by George Bush, McCain is trailing in four and five others are considered a toss-up.

As a result, Electoral College projections now show Obama leading 255-163. When “leaners” are included, Obama leads 300-174.

The 5 day:
10/12/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
10/11/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 52%
10/10/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 50%
10/09/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 50%
10/08/2008: McCain – 45%, Obama – 51%
