Rasmussen Pole (Poll) September 15, 2008

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Monday, September 15, 2008
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows John McCain attracting 49% of the vote while Barack Obama earns 47%. Results are released at 9:30 a.m. Eastern every day and a FREE daily e-mail update is available.

This is the fourth straight day that McCain has been at 49% or above. Prior to this recent stretch, the Republican nominee had not topped 48% on any day since Obama wrapped up the Democratic Presidential Nomination in early June. Still, today’s results show Obama a point closer to McCain than he’s been for the last three days.

Prior to the conventions, the tracking poll consistently showed a very close race–occasionally tied, but with Obama typically ahead by a point or two. For the past week, the race has remained very close but with a slight advantage for McCain. However, 17% of voters say they’re either uncommitted or could change their mind between now and Election Day. This suggests that the debates, which begin a week from Friday, could be especially important this year.

Forty-three percent (43%) of voters are certain they will vote for McCain and not change their mind. Forty percent (40%) say the same about Obama.

McCain is viewed favorably by 56% of the nation’s voters while Obama earns positive reviews from 54%.
