Rasmussen’s daily presidential tracking poll is now showing McCain with a slight lead over Democrat rival Obama (click here to view). The tracking poll actually shows the race for the White House tied with each attracting 44% of the vote. However, including “leaners” gives McCain a slim lead with 47% and Obama 46%. According to the tracking poll:
A week ago today, Obama had a three-percentage point lead and the candidates were even among unaffiliated voters. Today, McCain leads 52% to 37% among unaffiliateds.
The poll also revealed that McCain is currently viewed favorably by 55% of the nation’s voters while Obama’s favorability rating fell to 51%. This is the lowest rating for Obama since he wrapped up the nomination. Momentum definitely seems to be shifting in McCain’s favor.
