    Rasmussen shows Obama at 51%. I don't understand what you mean by tightening?

    It means his lead has lessened in each of these polls since yesterday.

    Yesterday:

    Rasmussen had Obama +8
    Reuters/CSpan/Zogby Tracking had Obama +3
    Hotline had Obama +3 down (down from +7 on 10/4)
    Battleground had Obama +7

    The only major poll that contradicts that the race is tightening is Gallup that has Obama now +11.

    Three more words: Never trust polls.



    Damn things are always skewered to show what they want it to show, i.e. if you have more dems in your sample than republicans it naturally going to shift left.

    Lies, Damn lies and statistics.
