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.

UPDATE: Two more polls (HERE and HERE) show Obama pulling away.

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.
