New Daily Kos Tracking Poll: Obama 47% McCain 45% Barr 2%…
…Unlike many other media outfits, we will not simply tout our own poll, but include information from other polls as we find them. For example, today, Rasmussen is tied at 48, Diageo/Hotline has McCain 46, Obama 44 and Gallup has McCain 48,Obama 44.
The bleeding has stopped and, according to Gallup, Obama’s revival has began. The situation? Waiting for Palin to deliver a blow or implode.
According to Karl Rove, however, Obama must not attack Palin because there is no way he’d win that matchup:
If Mr. Obama wants to win, he needs to remember he’s running against John McCain for president, not Mrs. Palin for vice president.
But let’s be frank: this election is not about McCain and Obama—Obama already won that race. This election is about Obama and Palin. That is the state of American politics at this moment. The two are young and have consolidated their parties. If you vote for Obama, you are voting for Obama; if you vote for McCain, you are voting for Palin. McCain is long out of the picture.
