    Gallup Daily: Likely Voters (Traditional)

    Gallup Daily election tracking reports the percentage of “likely voters” who say they would support each candidate when that group is defined based on respondents’ self-reported past voting behavior, as well as current voting intentions for the 2008 presidential election. This more tightly defined group includes about 60% of the general public, somewhat greater than the typical 50% to 55% who have turned out in recent presidential elections.

    I don't really see much of a difference between McCain and Obama, except for the following:

    McCain - Old Guy
    Obama - Black Guy

    Hopefully this keen observation will be of use to others.

    Ummm, the main difference is that if they die we are stuck with Biden or Palin as pres.

    Or, the main diff is global perception of them and potential improvement in american sentiment around the world.

    Might be the diff is just that Obama hasn't stewed in DC for very long, so he still has some roots in real america.

    Not consistent.

    Should be:

    McCain - Old Guy
    Obama - Young Guy

    or

    McCain - White Guy
    Obama - Black Guy

    Do you know, if Obama does win this thing, the more I think about it the better I like it for several reasons. This country is finally going to realize in vivid detail what giving ALL your personal responsibility to the government will net you.

    I think you have a funny idea about what Democrats believe. But assuming you were correct, I figure whatever lessons are learned won't come close to what was learned by taking the sham of Reagan's supply side voodoo economics to it's logical extreme.

    My only problem is we have to clean up the mess and will get blamed by the loonies if it doesn't get cleaned up quickly enough.
