    Gallup uses three different models. The "traditional" model has Obama +2.

    From Gallup:

    The "traditional" likely voter model, which Gallup has employed for past elections, factors in prior voting behavior as well as current voting intention. This has generally shown a closer contest, reflecting the fact that Republicans have typically been more likely to vote than Democrats in previous elections. Today's results show Obama with a two-point advantage over McCain using this likely voter model, 49% to 47%, this is within the poll's margin of error.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows Barack Obama attracting 50% of the vote while John McCain earns 46%. It’s the first time since September 25 that McCain’s support has reached 46%.

    I can't wait for the dead silence that is going to follow this election. Followed by frantic proclamations of fraud, the stupidity of the American people, and finally the stubborn insistence that Obama really won and is the "real" president.

    And finally, the mass migration to the drug stores for their depression meds.

    Awwwww... look, he's back because he went up a point. So cute. But you left out most of the story:

    Rasmussen Reports: The most comprehensive public opinion coverage ever provided for a presidential election.

    Be careful with those pom poms ;)

    I actually won't be confident about it til the day AFTER election day.... and even then, I might worry.

    But the dear boy appears when McCain gains a point and slinks away when he loses.

    It's kind of weird.
