Daily Tracking Polls: Obama Lead Is Solid

leave a comment »

Right now, it’s all Obama. There is no good news for Sen. John McCain.

Rasmussen Markets data shows on Sunday that Sen. Barack Obama has a 77.1 percent chance of winning in November. Rasmussen Reports has Obama winning the Electoral College, 300-174. Toss-up states are not included, but most lean toward Obama in recent polling.

Real Clear Politics shows Obama up 277-158, but again, most of the toss-ups are pushing toward Obama.

The Zogby Electoral Map is more generous to McCain, giving Obama a lead of only 234-179. It also has McCain ahead in its recent polling in Pennsylvania and Florida, which other pollsters do not.
