The polls are all over the place. Zogby up to 12, Rasmussen up a bit to 7, and Gallup drops to a 4% Barack lead. Of the polls that I don't track, Hotline has Barack up 5, and IBD shows him with a 1% lead.

All polls show Barack leading, but only a bit outside the margin of error. Hidden factors, like brow-beaten voters unable to admit to pollsters they're not voting for the PC choice, or last minute fear over electing the guy who has no experience in a time of international monetary crisis, could control the day.
