Polling Trends

Obama's poll numbers are rising across in pretty much every battleground state. Yesterday, polls showed Obama getting over 50% of the vote in the traditional battleground states of Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

FLORIDA: Obama 51, McCain 43

OHIO: Obama 50, McCain 42

PENNSYLVANIA: Obama 54, McCain 39

The reason for Obama's bump has a lot to do with the economy becoming such a big issues. However, Sarah Palin is helping Obama's poll numbers out as well.
Public Policy Polling surveyed four states immediately after the Republican convention and then again three weeks later. In those states, Gov. Sarah Palin's favorability has dropped by a net average of 12 points, and Sen. Barack Obama's standing in the horse race has improved by an average of seven points.
