Tracking Poll Update - 8/15


McCain - 41%
Obama - 44%

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll of likely voters for Tuesday shows Obama attracting 44% of the vote while McCain earns 41%. When "leaners" are included, it’s Obama 47% and McCain 45%:

Despite the Russian invasion of Georgia, daily tracking data shows no shift in voter priorities for Election 2008. Forty-one percent (41%) say economic issues are most important while just 22% name national security issues as the top priority.


McCain - 44%
Obama - 44%

The latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking poll of registered voters finds McCain and Obama tied at 44% each:
The Aug. 12-14 polling shows a slight dip in Obama's support, which had ranged between 46% and 48% (averaging 47%) in August. McCain has averaged 43% support among registered voters so far in August. Thus, the closer margin seen in today's results is due more to movement away from Obama than toward McCain. Twelve percent of registered voters now say they are undecided or supporting another candidate, which is on the high end of what Gallup has measured this year.
