McCain's post convention bounce in the polls has evaporated..
As of today they are split 45%/45%

Rasmussen is much more accurate, and shows McCain ahead:

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% (see recent daily results). 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.

Yesterday McCain by two by one point ... and a downward trend according to your site Rasmussan.

Like I said the new car smell is fading with Palin.
Give it a week and McCain will be a couple points behind and the GOP will be front and center saying Polls don't matter.

Then the debates and pre and post debate spin etc. etc.

Both the GOP and Democrats opine as to the credibility or lack thereof of the Polls depending on if there candidate is leading.

If you genuinely follow Polls and find them a decent indicator, google around for "Polls" and the "Cell Phone" factor. It's intersting and one reason I don't think the Polls are as accurate a mechanism for predicting elections as they once were.

This will be a close race to the finish.
