Rasmussen Poll: 16 Pt. Obama Lead in Michigan

Someone once told me to add 5 points to the D's on any Rasmussen poll that I saw. I wonder if that still applies...

Just days after John McCain scaled back his campaign in Michigan, a new Rasmussen Reports survey of voters there shows Barack Obama with a 16-point lead on his Republican opponent.

Obama leads McCain 56% to 40% in the survey taken Wednesday night. A month ago, the Democrat was ahead by seven points, 51% to 44%.

"Terrorist" just doesn't pack the punch anymore...

Sixty percent (60%) of Michigan voters now rate the economy as the most important issue in the election, an increase of eight points from a month ago. National security is most important to just 13%.

... and neither does Sarah Palin. You guys can bring her back anytime.

McCain is viewed favorably by 47% and unfavorably by 51%. Obama has 61% favorables, 38% unfavorables.

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is regarded favorably by 49% and unfavorably by 50%. Obama’s running mate Joseph Biden is seen favorably by 59% and unfavorably by 39%.

But as Han Solo once said, "Great kid. Don't get cocky". Get out there and make sure we drive this thing home...
