Washington Post poll gives Obama lead of 9 points, mostly on economic fears


There’s a lot of factors to consider in the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, which SHOWS Barack Obama leading John McCain by 9 percentage points.

I was especially struck by this finding: “Whites without college degrees favor McCain by 17 points, while those with college degrees support Obama by 9 points.”

And there was this: “McCain’s once-sizable advantage in dealing with the battle against terrorism has all but disappeared. There were also big shifts toward Obama on handling Iraq and international affairs more broadly.”

And this: Obama “also now holds a double-digit lead as the more honest and trustworthy candidate, flipping what had been a slight McCain edge two weeks ago.” 

UPDATE: A passel of OTHER POLLS show Obama with wide leads over McCain on economic issues.
