For all the pretty press he's getting...

...you'd think he'd be way further ahead...

The Rasmussen poll which has a larger sample than Gallup and was taken over the same period has it 48/45 (BHO) +/- 2%.

and for what its worth the FoxNews poll from 07/22-23 has it 41/40 (BHO) +/- 3%.

Making predictions off of polls at this point in time is a mug's game, but I am amazed that with most of the media in the tank for Barry tht he isn't even doing as well as Dukakis at the end of July. He was ahead of GHWB bywe know how that turned out. 55/38 and we know how that turned out.

That poll also measures indirectly the percentage of Americans who are easily suckered by con men, who tell them happy things.

agreed... the moral of the story... not the acclamation the media would have you believe.
