Posted June 19, 2008 at 11:59am

Today’s daily Rasmussen tracking poll brings very modest good news for John McCain. While Barack Obama still leads McCain, 45 to 42 percent, today’s are McCain’s best results since June 5, when he came within two points (43-41) .

The two rivals are virtually identical when it comes to favorability scores: Obama was viewed favorably by 52 percent of respondents and unfavorably by 42 percent. For McCain, the numbers are 55% favorable and 43% unfavorable.

The daily tracking poll has a margin of error of +/- 2 percent.
