Exit Polling and State Calls Favoring Obama

New Mexico has just been called for Obama.  With Pennsylvania going early to Obama, numbers are looking worse for McCain.

It appears that my early instincts on the states to watch were correct.  At this point, if McCain loses Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Missouri, or Colorado, it will be safe to call this race.

On the Senate side of things, the Democrats have only picked up 3 seats so far.  It appears that they won’t be able to hit that filibuster-proof number of 60 barring a miracle.

Video: McCain’s Apperance on SNL

In case anyone missed the McCain appearance on Saturday Night Live last night, here are the clips.  This wasn’t publicised as well as Palin’s appearance, but I did find it to be very humorous.  Preliminary ratings show a 9.0 rating/20 share according to Neilsen.  It’s the second best showing for SNL since 1997.  The best is still Palin’s appearance which got 10.7 rating/24 share.

McCain Leads Obama in Zogby 1-Day Poll

Momentum appears to have continued for McCain as the latest Zogby poll shows that McCain has a 1 point lead in 1-day polling (48-47).  The three-day poll has held steady (at 49-44 Obama), but that is due to a good day of polling Obama had 3 days ago.  Another good day of polling for McCain will show the three-day poll tighten dramatically.

McCain has made inroads with women, most likely conservative women put off by Obama’s continued support of a “spread the wealth” philosophy.  He has also cut into independents and now even leads with blue collar voters.

The election could really turn into a nail-biter, but then again the disparity in the polls could be evidence that the polls are not indicative of how this race will end up.

Rasmussen: McCain More Trusted on Economy and Taxes

A surprising Rasmussen poll shows McCain is now polling ahead of Obama on the economy and taxes.  A month ago, McCain was polling 3 points behind on taxes.  Currently, he is polling 2 points ahead.  Obama seems to have hurt himself some with his answer to Joe the Plumber of “spreading the wealth around”.  A month ago, McCain was 9 points behind on the economy.  Now, he is 1 point ahead.

While these are small margins, it is yet more evidence that McCain is gaining momentum entering the election.
