Rasmussen Obama +5

Gallop Expanded +7
This morning while I was getting ready for work I watched Obama and then Palin and then John McCain give their stump speech. My impression is that Obama is sitting on his lead and trying to run the clock out. Palin is a real star! She wont always be "inexperienced" but she will always have charisma. McCain is hitting pay dirt on Obama's "spread the wealth" and redistribution of wealth remarks.McCain ended his speech with the following and he was very emotion in a kind of "Give them hell Harry sort of way:
My answer to you is yes. Yes, we will lead. Yes, we will prosper. Yes, we will be safer. Yes, we will pass on to our children a stronger, better country. But we must be prepared to act swiftly, boldly, with courage and wisdom.
I'm an American. And I choose to fight. Don't give up hope. Be strong. Have courage. And fight.
Fight for a new direction for our country. Fight for what's right for America.
Fight to clean up the mess of corruption, infighting and selfishness in Washington.
Fight to get our economy out of the ditch and back in the lead.
Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.
Fight for our children's future.
Fight for justice and opportunity for all.
Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.
Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. America is worth fighting for. Nothing is inevitable here. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.
Now, let's go win this election and get this country moving again.
