    That's another reason I like Real Clear. They provide a state by state electoral vote count too.

    I just see more and more people falling for this asshat Palin. It saddens and discourages me. I'm almost always an optimist, but I don't know anymore........
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Yeah, well the conservatives up here are leading the polls and an election is 1 month away

    not because they're particularely good, but because the opposition has basically been disorganized and invisible.

    State polls lag behind the national polls so I'm pretty sure we'll see McCain's bounce fading there as well in the next week.

    I was thinking the same thing. All those voters who only have/use cell phones can't be polled.

    The argument about the younger generation came out in 04 too but did not prove out. The younger voters get all excited but then fail to make it to the polls. This year Obama's camp needs to keep the youth vote energized and get their asses to the polls.

    I also agree that the state polls as well as national will change over the next few weeks. The convention bounce and excitement about the newcomer, Palin, is running out of steam. The ecomony hit very turbulent waters this week and polls are showing people feel Obama is best on the economy. I expect the numbers to begin to shift over the next few weeks.

    Hey, here's a poll on Palin:
    Palin's Favorability Numbers Eroding

    As voters have taken a second look at Sarah Palin in venues like the Charlie Gibson interview and even Tina Fey's SNL sketch, they may not be as enamored of what they're seeing.

    The Research 2000 poll for Daily Kos now has Palin's favorability-unfavorability scores at 45-44 -- just a +1. Six days ago, when the poll, launched, she was at a 52-35, a +17.

    And I know that some of you don't like or don't trust this poll -- for reasons that I think are a little silly -- but there is a similar decline in her numbers in the Diageo/Hotline poll. Her favorability numbers in yesterday's Hotline poll -- today's isn't out yet -- were a 48-36, or a +12. But a week ago, on September 8, she had been at a 48-24, a +24.

    Whether this ultimately has any effect on the Presidential race remains to be seen; Obama's position has improved in the national trackers, but not so much in the state polls. But it seems possible to me that John McCain's recent bounce has had more to do with John McCain -- whose speech at the convention was as underrated as Palin's was overrated -- and less to do with Palin than is generally acknowledged. And if people are voting based on the bottom of the ticket, it seems furthermore that she may yet wind up being a net liability for him.
