Obama and McCain tied: 48% for each, says Rasmussen

Nostradamus' latest candidates: Obama and McCain

Three days before the presidential debates are going in a long awaited first round the scenario of election polls couldn't be more undecided: The Rasmussen Report has both candidates tied up, »Barack Obama attracts 48% of the vote and so does John McCain«.

So where did Obama's lead go? Why is he losing ground? Maybe because the last president the American people want right now is one who is going to raise taxes, while Las Vegas presidential betting odds stay just the same? With the presidential debates scheduled to start on Friday night (watch out for biased moderators!) we should soon see some more serious trends in polls. Indeed these debates with the economy as the top issue will have a significant importance since the presidential election race is so tied. Predicting with Nostradamus I'd say that the elder and more experienced one is going to become the polls' favorite over the weekend...

It's going to be so close! (Or is it).
Some claim that the McCain campaign only got back in the race because of the the Palin nomination.
Now that the news is wearing off - the Obama campaign is catching up.

I use a widget to keep track of the progression of polls. The widget shows the election polls by strength of states.
In addition to other different graphical visualizations of data, this one displays the progression of votes over time.
Hereby you can see how/if the states have moved!

It gives a great overview and it is updated as the polls come in!


... and its easy to put on your blog and fits in your sidebar!

Make a difference, keep on voting!
