    From Gallup:

    The gap between Barack Obama and John McCain in Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Saturday through Monday has narrowed slightly, and Obama is now at 49% of the vote to 47% for McCain among likely voters using Gallup's traditional model.

    I'd say its' narrowed more than slightly! Obama was up +5 just 24 hours ago and these are three day rolling averages. I would think this means McCain must have outpolled Obama yesterday.

    The Thursday polls should tell us a lot.

    Obama supporters are awfully quiet about the polls today.

    Any other Obama supporters want to ignore that the Gallup traditional poll is now within the margin of error?

    No wonder the stock market went up 900 points today!

    Wonder how many people will walk into the voting booth, and not be able to pull the handle for The Great Divider Obama. Boys, the new Mason-Dixon line is being drawn, it's between drawn along earning potential.

    This is the traditional voting model that is based upon 2004 turnout. We have already seen records broken in several dozen states that show that this model is obsolete.
    Gallup also offers an expanded gallup model that shows Obama up by 7. This model is predicting massive voter turnout.

    With the massive amount of voter turnout that there has been already, you can really see that the expanded model is the more likely model.

    Relish in the old, obsolete models as much as you can, cons. Next week, Obama is going to trounce you.
