Oil the latest study tracking poll from Rasmussen report just released this morning so let's go to a hundred Walken -- -- What's the -- WS dot.
Right now President Obama as the 47%.
Mitt Romney's at 46%.
When we push those who were undecided and -- which way -- relating.
It's all tied up at 48%.
Still a toss -- yeah I mean an absolute dead heat in -- tracking poll.
-- a again let's let's be clear you poll likely vote this right.
And that that's correct and the only other tracking -- -- a daily basis Gallup is showing the president up -- but that's among registered voters.
OK now if you look at -- in tunnels.
Are you skewed towards Republicans all towards Democrats is our internal skew.
Right now there is 39% of the sample or Democrats 36%.
That's right between the -- we saw in 2004 which was a great year for Republicans and 2008 a great turnout year for Democrat.
So we've not seen the -- yet.
Is that's under usual -- mid to late September of an election year I -- and number 040 late in the ones previous to that.
Well in 08.
We were just seeing the big push by Obama right now -- four years ago yesterday Obama and McCain were tied.
McCain had been losing ground following his big convention bounce and then he made the comment about suspending his campaign and it was all over.
That's right four years ago this week.
-- -- and last week as well that was essentially the financial panic of 08 John McCain as you say suspended his campaign.
And he agreed with the bailout Barack Obama stood off.
A sort of aloof from the Friday and took off in the polls but that was then this is now this is a very different election year.
Absolutely four years ago neither McCain nor Obama knew how to respond to the meltdown hardly anybody did Barbara President Obama was wise enough to be quiet about it John McCain spoke every day and showed he didn't know what was going on this election cycle.
We have a dynamic where it's very close.
Heading into the final stretch we have the first debates next week there's some news in the Middle East -- could shake it up.
We're still not sure where the economy is heading.
I would expect this race will be closer than it was in 2008.
But it's not at all certain -- gonna end up dead even the way it is right now.
-- in the news business reporting itself there was an even better to be a pulse or I suggest that's it's a fascinating time and terrorism by the -- -- in the swing states.
Things -- just disclose the three biggest states Ohio Virginia Florida.
The president is up by one or two points and each of those states so we are in a pure tossup right now.
Right stuff of pulses I Scott always a pleasure thanks so much -- thanks.
