In today's Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll, Sarah Palin has pulled the presidential race back into a tie.
In the first national polling results based entirely on interviews conducted after Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech, Barack Obama gets 46% of the vote and so does John McCain. When "leaners" are included, it’s all even at 48%.
Now that the Barack convention bounce has been erased, we'll see over the next couple of days if the McCain/Palin bounce has energy enough to create a lead.
Tracking Poll results are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, tomorrow (Monday) will be the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after McCain’s speech. By Tuesday or Wednesday, the net impact of both political conventions should be fairly clear.
The new Zogby poll, noted in the next post down, shows McCain/Palin leading by 4%.
