Obama Watch



n the first sign that voters are coalescing around Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee, two daily tracking polls notice a widening of the gap over his Republican rival John McCain. Both Gallup and Rasmussen now have Obama holding a gap of 6% over McCain. The numbers in parentheses show the point change from last week:

Obama 48% (+3)
McCain 42% (-4)

Obama 50% (+4)
McCain 44% (-2)
Margin of error: 4%
