Barack Obama met the 50 percent threshold for the first time Tuesday in the Gallup daily tracking poll, a symbolic hurdle that until now had eluded the Democratic nominee.
The Gallup daily tracking poll has found that since the conclusion of the Democratic convention, Obama has risen 5 percentage points in the polls and now leads John McCain 50 percent to 42 percent. That represents a positive turn for Obama, after a couple of days in which he appeared to have peaked at the 49 percent mark while McCain was showing slight improvements.
I know this is a customary bump following conventions, but it's a good sign and worth enjoying. For a minute. More work needs to be done. Mainly, the constant reminder of how 8 years of George W. Bush have decimated this country and McCain/Palin is just another page from the same discredited gamebook.
Good talk. See ya out there.
