A Quinnipiac University Polling Institute poll reports a delayed bounce for Barack in Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio now that Hillary is out of the way. The bounce is based on young voters and blacks (90% support him) while mature White voters and especially men do not. A Rasmussen Poll released at 9Am PST Thursday still has Obama 45-McCain 42%. McCain seems glued to the 42% figure. 62% agree with McCain on ending the offshore drilling moratorium; including 61% of Floridians where Rasmussen contradicts Quinipiac finding McCain leads, and that will help him while only 27% agree with Obama’s opposition to it and that hurts him. Not unexpectedly 85% of Republican agree with McCain on offshore drilling and surprisingly Democrats are split at 45%.
52% says Congress is doing a poor job, and 30% says it Is corrupt only 11% says it is doing a good or excellent job. 64% says the Democrat control Congress, now 233 Democrat and 202 Republican, has done nothing to improve American life. 73% say member of Congress are only interested in improving their own political career.
