I just went back in the archives and noticed that Rasmussen had Mccain ahead by 7 in Ohio in Early August before the conventions, and after the GOP convention Mccain was ahead by 5; Obama won by 4. I have noticed that Rasmussen's pattern has leaned Republican a lot of the time, up until the first part of the election.

All is not even lost for Harry Reid. I admit, it would be a stretch for him to win but Obama also trailed in a zogby poll in NH by 8 and in NC by 16 during the time of the Republican convention and won both. It is still too early to judge.

Most polls had McCain ahead in Ohio until the DOW crashed and Sarah Palin started giving interviews. That isn't a bias, it's just reality.

FL&P just what is it that your argument is supposed to prove? Both polls were taken prior to the financial collapse and before McCain suspended his campaign and tried to "parachute" into D.C. to help fix the mess. Beginning in late Sept. 08 into early October was when McCain's numbers nose dived both nationally and state-by-state. In August, he was doing well in OH and nationally in most polls.

Go to the archives and you will see I am correct. Check out the Ohio polls and go back to the summer and early fall with Mccain ahead by 7 in Ohio.

You mentioned opinion changed after Mccain said the "fundamentals of the economy are strong" and suspended his campaign. Things can change at the last minute, that is why these polls are going to change.
