Meanwhile, back at the polling ranch... [Updated]

[UPDATE: Right on schedule, +2 Obama from Gallup. Good: now I can go vacuum the rug.]

Reuters/Zogby reports +2 Obama (no crosstabs yet), while Rasmussen is steady-as-she-goes with McCain +1. Based on language in yesterday’s Gallup, expect a shift towards Obama in their tracking today – which should no doubt relieve our Democratic colleagues, and even possibly make them decide to stop playing Concerned Christian Conservative Commenters on other people’s websites.

All in all, a nice little bounce for us: we got our base number up, Obama got his down, and hovering around the tied mark with short-term boosts for McCain is a marked improvement over hovering around +2 Obama with short term boosts to tied. On to the debates, I suppose.
