Cab someone explain this to me:

"Obama continues to lead among independent voters – his advantage now stands at 16 points, 51% to 35%.

Exactly how can Obama be up by 16% points amung independents and this be a 4 point race? It makes no sense to me.

Hope springs eternal. Your man is in trouble. All the news is this, "Is Barack Obama a Marxist?"

The LA Times admits to having a VERY damning video of Obama hanging out at a party with terrorists, Jew-haters and Marxists but they are actually REFUSING TO RELEASE IT!

What if they had a video-tape of John McCain at a party hobnobbing with the KKK? Would they refuse to release that as well?

McCain needs to gain 1.1% PER DAY on the national tracker, and hope that it come from the swing states as much as the safe states to have a 50/50 chance next Tuesday.

That's going to be hard to do, even if these lies the Republicans are trying to spread.

Drudge is releasing the tape today, but only to his boyfriend/lover Zogby. This tape is said to be EXPLOSIVE and will blow the campaign WIDE OPEN! Look for an Obama lead of +500,000,000 in tomorrows polls. THIS IS A HUGE BREAKING DEVELOPMENT!

CNN, FOX and MSNBC will have more on it at 8 A.M. this morning. Be sure to tune in. It's gonna be a SHOCKING revelation to all the Palin supporters out there!

Sadly, judging by some of the folks appearing at his rallies and "inspired" by his rhetoric (self-mutilators and would-be assassins included), it would seem that McCain is "hobnobbing with the KKK."

straight talk:

Anytime the national polls tightened, it seems like the McCain camp thinks that they have a chance to come back! The problem is there is no evidence of a McCain Surge in the state polling! ZERO! Even Zogby had Obama crushing McCain in state polling! The low that McCain can hope for is 5% nationally! But don't think his people going to show at the polls because all signs at this point are pointing to a landslide victory for Obama! Gallup RV POlling is the one to watch! It has predictated all of the Presidents, except Al Gore! Because of FLORIDA! It has Obama up by 10!

R2000 just came out and Obama gained a point ... Just supports what I've been saying all along and that is the trend is likely to prove the most accurate. Pollster trend shows it at +7.2% Obama. Also note how McCain can't get over 45% in any poll other than Ras. With a week left that has got to be more concerning.

WaPo-ABC Track: Early Birds for Obama

More than twelve million voters have already cast ballots in the presidential contest, according to one estimate, and new data from the Washington Post-ABC News tracking poll shows these voters breaking Democratic by a wide margin.

Among those who said they have already voted at an early voting location or sent in an absentee ballot, Barack Obama picked up 60 percent of the vote in the new poll to John McCain's 39 percent.

These voters make up 9 percent of "likely" voters in the track.

The senator from Illinois has a similar lead, 58 to 39 percent, among those who plan to vote early but have not yet. (Those who plan to vote on Election Day also go for Obama, but by a narrower, 51 to 45 percent.)

These early voting numbers are a near mirror-image of those from the last two elections: A paper using the National Annenberg Election Study reports that George W. Bush scored 62 percent of early voters in 2000 and 60 percent of them in 2004.

Rasmussen moved 3 points to McCain in one day yesterday! IBD has trimmed 9 points off Obama's lead.

Repetita juvant .. said the Romans ..

McCain solidified his support among white and male voters but Obama retained double-digit leads among women and independent voters -- two key swing blocs in the November 4 election.

Obama had a strong single day of polling on Monday, pollster John Zogby said, and still holds a significant edge among Hispanics and Catholics, two groups who gave a boost to Republican President George W. Bush's re-election win in 2004.

"With seven days to go in this race, McCain is still not where he needs to be with some key groups and he is running out of time," Zogby said.
This from the drudge liked ZOGBY.
GOOD NEWS! ONE WEEK! YES WE CAN and YES WE WILL!

____________________

SoloBJ:

"On successive individual days in the R2K poll (different than the topline, which is a combined three day sample), Obama was up +9 Sat, +5 Sunday and +6 Mon, with a +11 Friday sample rolling off.

Here is the tracker-only, high-sensitivity pollster.com graph. What's clear is that tightening is more McCain creeping up than Obama dropping. However, it is not enough to change the election trajectory, as yet another day falls off the calendar, and McCain-Palin pre-post-mortems continue to be written in public."

McCain needs to win Maricopa county (Phoenix) by a large margin to win AZ. Downstate (Tucson) is very liberal and if he only ties or is close in Phoenix he loses. This is how Napolitano won.

DecaturMark:

Boom,

You always assume what a candidate polled the previous evening. But if you had any sense you would know that a 3 day tracker is just that: the last 3 days. Which means an above avg day for one candidate may "roll off" as an above avg day for the other candidate "rolls on." And if you look at RK2000, that is what happened. Two big days rolled off (O +14 and O +11) while two new polls replaced them (O +5 on Sunday and a +6 on Monday). That is what caused the shift. As you see Obama actually did better last night than McCain from the previous day and yet the avg went down. It's called math, learn it sometime.

Could you please give us a preview of your Zogby-like excuse message now? If you don't have one yet, you really ought to consider crafting it with only a week to go. It shouldn't contain phrases like "here is what went wrong...", but rather "among my stupid and failed assumptions were..."

When did Obama lead by +12 on IBD..the most he ever got on this tracker was a +7.3 for one single day....if you average all the 15 releases he has done so far it comes to O+3.9 and yesterday he was at O+2.8 (not far off the mean).

That just leaves the "swinging" Zogby for you to hang your hat on..do you even think before you write!

While R2K is better today than yesterday for Obama, the fact remains that it's not nearly as good as last week. A lot of people were expecting the monday numbers to go back up (BO doesn't poll well on weekends). It didn't. If the single day margin tomorrow isn't much larger than today (bringing the overall tracker closer to the beginning of last week), I think we can say it's tightening.

I went back quite a bit to see if I could figure out the recent dailies in Rasmussen. What I got was something like this:

+5, +2, +5, +8, +5, -1, +8, +11, +2, +8, +14, +2, -1

This was very back-of-the-envelope and someone may be able to improve on it. Still, I think there is a lot more daily volatility in Rasmussen than perhaps some people have realized.

@southern angler ...

To use an example - From Oakland CA to Honolulu ...

A 767 burns about 2200 gallons of jet fuel per hour, so it uses about 11,000 gallons for the flight. At $4 per gallon that’s $44,000 just for the fuel.

According to the FAA other costs (maintenance and so on) to operate the aircraft were about $1100 per hour in 2004. Using that figure it adds another $5,500 to the cost of our flight.

Adding it up we see the cost to fly a 767 from Oakland to Honolulu is about $50,000.

____________________

DTM:

OK, I went back farther and got a different result for my estimate of the last three days in Rasmussen. For the entire month of October:

+6, +8, +4, +9, +11, +4, +3, +8, +4, +9, +5, +1, +9, -2, +9, +8, +1, +3, +8, +7, +6, +8, +10, +6, -1

But given the manifest sensitivity to my starting point assumptions, I am generally less confident in my back-of-the-envelope calculations, and so I will stop offering them.

You're telling me that McCain's claim that Obama is a Marxist is gaining traction.

Seriously, I wouldn't be able to confirm that because all the new resports I saw yesterday dealt with Sen. Steven coruption trial, the civil war between "Team Sarah" and the McCain handlers, and Obama's closing argument.

Today, I imagine we'll he more about voter fraud, and vote suppression. We'll ponder what will be the effect of Obama's 30 minute campaign ad, and whether or not Senate Democrats will be able to ride his coat tails to 60.

Don't you think that this is the news that is going to carry the day?

Fortunately, no, no one is dependent on my math skills. And see my 9:06 post.

That said, I do think Obama likely had a pretty good day of polling given that he held steady in Rasmussen (maybe not +14, but on the higher side of his recent range).

____________________

KMartDad08:

Just kidding, friend.

It does look like Obama had a good Monday's worth of polling in Ras, and if you read the Reuter's article, Zogby is setting us up to see an uptick for Obama tomorrow. Not that any of this matters all that much because the main storyline here is how steady the race seems to be (sorry BOOM, that's just the way it goes).

If you are going to quote the daily changes on Zogby and Rasmussen then you should at least be consistent with R2000.

@boomshak, southern angler,

You guys having fun yet? When Obama is up 5-10 points in all the polls on November 3rd, will you be here warning of his imminent collapse? What about on Nov. 4th at 10pm, when he'll be the presumptive nominee? The thing is, the people who are here reading your posts know that you posted the same exact thing last week and the week before that. If you want to scare us, you need to show some more originality.
