Gallup: Obama 45%, McCain 44%. Nine Point lead evaporates. Rasmussen: Obama by 2%

It appears that my prediction of the gallup poll showing a 9 point lead for Barack Hussein Obama being a high point have proven to be accurate.

The same Gallup Daily tracking poll shows Obama leading by a single point over John McCain, 45%-44%.  That is an eight point swing in just four days.

The latest three-day average confirms that Obama was unable to solidify the significant lead he briefly enjoyed among registered voters at the height of publicity surrounding his weeklong visit to Afghanistan, Iraq, the Middle East, and Europe. Gallup tracking showed Obama’s lead rising at one point as high as nine percentage points (for the average from last Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), but the presumptive Democratic nominee has been losing ground since that point.

But Wait!  That’s not all! Rasmussen has the race as a 2% gap, 46% for McCain, 48% for Obama.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that Barack Obama now attracts 45% of the vote while John McCain earns 43%. When “leaners” are included, it’s Obama 48% and McCain 46% (see recent daily results). McCain is viewed favorably by 56% of voters, Obama by 55%

With unbelievably biased, fawning news coverage, and literally 2x the money spent, Obama just cannot close the deal with American voters.

Just a reminder, Americans, and not German Berliners, or French Parisians vote in U.S. Presidential Elections.
