The long October begins

Rasmussen has Senator Obama up 51% to 45% in their first daily tracking poll based entirely on results since the first debate. They have also moved Florida into the toss-up category.

New state polling from Florida has moved that state from "Leans Republicant" to "Toss-up" in the Rasmussen Reports Balance of Power Calculator. With this change, Obama leads in states with 200 Electoral College votes while McCain is ahead in states with 174 Electoral College votes. When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 255, McCain 200.

Yesterday may have been the nail in the coffin for the McCain campaign.
