    Gallup Daily: No Bounce for Obama in Post-Biden Tracking
    McCain creeps ahead, 46% to 44%

    PRINCETON, NJ --
    It's official: Barack Obama has received no bounce in voter support out of his selection of Sen. Joe Biden to be his vice presidential running mate.

    Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Aug. 23-25, the first three-day period falling entirely after Obama's Saturday morning vice presidential announcement, shows 46% of national registered voters backing John McCain and 44% supporting Obama, not appreciably different from the previous week's standing for both candidates. This is the first time since Obama clinched the nomination in early June, though, that McCain has held any kind of advantage over Obama in Gallup Poll Daily tracking.

    The word "creep" seems appropriate enough... :D

    Yep... nothing creepy about Biden or Obama... :D

    I have been enlightened as to the fact, by watching the DNC, that the GOP opposed spreadable butter and Bush personally sanctioned Katrina. There is a picture somewhere of Rumsfeld shaking hands with Katrina...

    Bastids...

    I can't vote for Obama... and I won't vote for McCain...

    This field is the worst we've had in years...

    Obama is a dolt and McCain is a bit angry for me....

    McCain has had more knowledge beaten out of him in Viet Nam than Obama will ever know...

    I can't stand McCain but when you go by the lesser of two evils, it isn't even close...

    The alarmist faction has assured us that Bush will extend his tenure via Martial Law...

    So.... when will this happen...

    I want to agree with you 100%... and I cant... lol

    McCain just doesnt do it for me.
    I vote NEITHER.


    Obama will regret not making the "smart move" and picking Hillary.
    He already knows it.

    So does Hillary.

    I dislike the two-party system we are currently bound to. But we'll never work in the independents until we remove corporations from the equation. They control everything from the... ahem... candidates - all the way down to the conventions.

    Until then - I could cast 10 votes for Nader, McKinney, Barr... and would have wasted 30 votes. Because they cannot even get a reasonably equal forum to express their political views to the masses.

    And so our electoral system is reduced to many of us voting for the candidate we are least FEARFUL of.

    Sucks!

    All kidding aside, and I mean that, that is why McCain will win and as I said before, by a wider margin than many people think.

    It will be another squeaker of an election but in the end I project a 275 to 266 victory by John McCain in the electoral college, depending how Ohio, Pennsylvania and Minnesota go on election night.

    I blew it. What I should have said is "we are reduced to voting for the candidate we are the SECOND-MOST UNcomfortable with."

    Let me remind you conservatives who have decided not to vote, that withdrawing on election day is the same as voting for Obama.

    You already know that.

    In my mind, if you don't vote either way you forfeit your right to complain or defend for the next four years.

    Rasmussen[IMG] has McCain gaining ground today, up a single point.

    Pretty strange considering convention week is normally a decent swing for the party.
