As I suggested might happen a few days ago, Rasmussen is now reporting that McCain and Obama are tied in the 3-day tracking poll, each at 48%. This represents a 3% jump from yesterday's results. Thus, Saturday's respondents favored McCain by 8-10% more than Wednesday's respondents, just before Palin's Wednesday speech.
The Obama bounce, which peaked at a 6% lead in the Rasmussen poll released last Tuesday, is gone. Obama still leads by 1.8% in the Real Clear Politics composite.
