While the conventions are still ahead, as are the announcements of running mates, at this point Barack Obama and John McCain are all tied up in the latest Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll on presidential preference.
Both candidates garner about 43 percent in the poll, leaving about 14 percent of the electorate undecided, if these numbers are to be believed. The news of these polls, if you ask me, is about as helpful as an AC compressor in a snowstorm, but there it is.
The only poll that matters, after all, is the one that takes place in November, at the ballot box. Beyond that, it’s all just best guesses at the mood of the moment. And I still can’t figure out why America is so intent on promoting either of these yahoos who have been part of the worst-rated Congress in US history…. Only nine percent approval!
