    Rasmussen, which is the most accurate pollster among all of them, has Obama up by 8.

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

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

    With 10 days until the election, things are looking good for Barack Obama[​IMG] in most of the nation.
    Obama has maintained a steady lead over McCain for a month now in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.The Democrat’s numbers appear not to have been impacted so far by the two Joes.
    John McCain[​IMG] says it's socialism, but 44% agree with what Obama told Joe the Plumber the other day, "When you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." Forty-two percent (42%) disagree.
    Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters are very concerned that Obama will be tested with an international crisis in his first six months as president, as his running mate Joseph Biden predicted last weekend.
    Polling this week also shows the Democrat with leads in Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Washington.
    The problem for McCain is that now he’s down five points in must-win states Missouri and Colorado. McCain trails in Virginia by 10, and Florida’s all tied up. All have gone Republican in recent years. Until now, that is.
    Rasmussen Reports surveys also show McCain holding on to a declining lead in the case of Georgia while he has edged back into a two-point lead in North Carolina. McCain’s doing a bit better in Ohio, too.
    Kentucky, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia were all lining up for McCain this week as recent history tells us to expect. But these are all states the Republican was expected to carry.
    Look, too, for a new Democratic senator from Virginia, as Mark Warner remains far, far ahead in that race. Incumbent GOP Senator Saxby Chambliss is down to a two-point lead in Georgia this week, making his seat a tantalizing possibility for Democrats hoping to gain a 60-seat filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.
    A big unknown remains how much Obama can count on turnout from newly registered voters. Forty-five percent (45%) say the liberal activist group ACORN is trying to register voters illegally in the massive drives that have gone on nationwide. Voters across the country expect illegal voting to occur. What’s not clear is how that will ultimately play out.
    The economy is still uppermost in the minds of most Americans. Fifty-eight percent (58%) say more tax cuts will better stimulate the economy than new government spending, while Congress considers a second stimulus plan that could cost as much as $300 billion.
    Just 11% of voters think Congress is doing a good or excellent job -- even as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is talking about a special session after the election to enact the second stimulus plan.
    The Rasmussen Investor Index dropped on Friday to its lowest reading in over a week. Overall, investor confidence is down 39 points from the first reading of the year.
    The mounting economic crisis is also eroding Americans' optimism in their financial security. The COUNTRY Financial Security Index (SM) fell this month, fueled by dramatic declines among men, pre-retirees and high income individuals.
    In other polls this week:
    -- There was good news for most incumbent senators. Democrat Mary Landrieu in Louisiana and three veteran Republicans – Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, Lamar Alexander in Tennessee and John Cornyn in Texas – were well ahead in their races.
    -- There soon may be a touch of “Saturday Night Live” in the Senate if Democratic hopeful Al Franken holds his current lead over incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman.
    -- Fifty-three percent (53%) say presidential candidates should announce at least some of their Cabinet choices before an election to help voters make a more informed decision.
    -- It’s the issue both presidential candidates have largely ignored as they court the nation’s growing Hispanic population, but one-out-of-four voters (26%) is still angry about the current immigration situation.
    -- Forty-one percent (41%) of Americans think the federal government should provide tax incentives for anyone who buys a car from a U.S. auto company, as General Motors and Chrysler discuss a merger to survive in the current economic climate.
    -- Incumbent Governor Christine Gregoire has inched ahead of Republican challenger Dino Rossi in Washington’s rematch of the gubernatorial race four years ago that ended up being decided by the courts. Democratic Governor Joe Manchin is rising a tidal wave of support to reelection in West Virginia.
    -- The Democrats’ lead over the GOP slipped two points over the past week in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional ballot. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey found that, if given the choice, 45% of voters would choose their district’s Democratic candidate, while 39% would choose the Republican candidate.
    -- Only 15% of adults think Madonna is a good role model for women. Perhaps surprisingly, men and women poll identically on this question.

    No, you are getting dumber by the minute.

    Al Franken is a Harvard graduate and a very smart man.

    Obama is within 2 points of McCain in Georgia!

    I think he should campaign there and get that 60 vote majority in the Senate.

    pot... kettle.

    and until a few weeks ago, franken was behind. this has been a very bad campaign for repubs, but that's not the dems fault. it's because the focus has been on garbage like obama's birth certificate and ayers instead of things people actually care about.
