Today’s Rasmussen tracking poll has Kerry’s lead over Bush down to three points, which is the margin of error. A lot better than yesterday’s six. I thought I’d note this since yesterday I pointed out the slide associated with problems in Iraq, but at this point, it doesn’t make sense to obsess any further on the polls until the situation in Iraq clarifies, for better or worse.
UPDATE: The very smart Dafydd ab Hugh explains why we shouldn’t pay much attention to daily fluctuations in tracking polls:
The reason you shouldn’t take seriously daily fluctuations in a tracking poll (like Rasmussen) is how volatile they are over the short term.
