Obama opens 14-point lead in CBS/NYT poll
On the eve of the third and final presidential of the season, Barack Obama has surged to a lead of 14 percentage points — 18 points among independents — over John McCain in the latest CBS/New York Times POLL.
The survey also shows that McCain’s attacks on Obama and his choice of Sarah Palin as a running mate are both drags on the Republican ticket.
These are apart from the various daily tracking polls, two of which have Obama up by double-digits.
Then there are the POLLS released today that put Obama ahead in the battleground states of Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
