McCain gains one and Obama loses one, and now the Rasmussen and Gallup polls show a very similar story.

From here on in, I’ll post the numbers like this: Registered, Likely Expanded, Likely Traditional. That way everybody will get a gauge of how all of Gallup’s models are shaking out.

And, by the way, I’m not exactly sure why Gallup just doesn’t decide on one model and go with that, but here we are nonetheless…

Registered Voters: Obama +7

Likely Voters (Expanded Model): Obama +6

Likely Voters (Traditional Model): Obama +4

While it may seem like McCain’s gaining quite a bit over the past couple days, it’s important to understand that he needs to start really getting a lot closer to 50% if he has any chance of making this thing interesting.

More tomorrow…
