The latest Fox News/Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Ohio, finds John McCain out in front of Barack Obama 51% to 44% (crosstabs available for Premium Members).

The latest numbers, which are the first to be released since the conclusion of both parties’ conventions, mark an improvement for the Republican nominee. In August, McCain had a slightly more modest advantage over the Democrat. In fact, the GOP hopeful has held a modest lead since July in the swing state that finally decided the 2004 election.

McCain is viewed favorably by 63% of Ohio voters and unfavorably by 35%. Obama’s ratings are 50% favorable, 48% unfavorable.

Rasmussen Reports and Fox News Channel will jointly release a series battleground state polls every Monday night at 6:00 p.m. Eastern. See overview of all polling released this week.

This may be the Govenor Palin effect taking hold. All those bitter white people who cling to their guns and religion are making a statement.


The election is still 2 months away. Anything could happen.

Wow, bigot much? If you really think the millions of women in this country will go "Wow, the party that thinks we belong in the kitchen barefoot and pregnant nominated a woman! Why, I'll ignore the centuries of prejudice and persecution and bigotry and sexism now!"

BTW, aren't you a woman? Are you really going to vote for someone who thinks the Government should control your body, and not you?

IF you look at the chart on that link you posted that compares McCain and Obama you can see that Obama enjoyed his post convention bump the week before. McCain is enjoying his now. Obama peaked last week and maybe McCain peaks this week.

It would seem that way in a AVG election year , But with the anti Bush vote and the anti war vote The Dems should be walking with this election , It seems more than just your post convention bump . It looks like a trend to me .

Just to make this clear because you obviously missed the point of my other thread.

I said ABC lied when they specifically stated "55% of Americans believe..."

A poll of 505 people can never translate into a blanket statement about the entire population of America.

And this why the polls are so skewed most of the time. They take a "population sample" from one biased demographic region and state it reflects the entire population with a +- margin of 3-4%.

You have to take random samples for various demographics in various regions before making a good hypothisis.

Most polls do not do this.

Web polls are even worse. MSNBC has "tweaked" their polls to reflect certain liberal viewpoints.
