Obama Ahead in Polls
Confirming what other polls have been showing, a new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Barack Obama with a 6 point lead over Republican John McCain (48 to 42 %)
Even better, a Quinnipiac University Poll shows Obama leading McCain in three key swing states: Florida (Obama 47, McCain 43%) Ohio (Obama 48%, McCain 42%) Pennsylvania (Obama 52%, McCain 40%)
The threat of Hillary women voting for John McCain seems to be unfounded: Obama leads among women likely voters by 10 to 23 percent.
Independent voters, a key factor in the general election, oppose Hillary Clinton as V.P. by wide margins. So much for the Clintonista claims that Hillary would have a better chance than Obama in the general election, or that she would be the best pick for V.P.!
