Poll: Obama ahead of Ryan by 8 points in Senate race

This race is closer than I expected. Barack Obama should see this as a sign that he shouldn't get comfortable. Jack Ryan should also see this as a sign that he has a lot of ground to gain in order to be really competitive. Jack has a good platform with school vouchers. Obama has a lot of the social issues in hand. I do wonder what's going to happen further in the campaign with Ryan's education platform. Is it going to sell better with black voters than the newspapers want to say?

This is a Rasmussen poll, so I'm assuming that these guys are this election's Zogby polls; they're the current darlings of the poll-taker set. Between Rasmussen, Zogby and Quinnipac University, the Gallup Organization needs to figure out how to regain their market share.
