A New York Times poll, released last night, shows Obama with a 53% to 39% lead over McCain. That was a big enough story to cause Reuters to put out an alert. I’m on the run this morning so I don’t have time to dissect or discuss the numbers or what this means, but all you have to do is run over to the article and read for yourself. They also have some great info on how much time the voters feel each candidate has spent talking about the issues vs. attacking. (Note: poll link and article link are different.)
A quick mention: Rasmussen daily tracking has had Obama at least five points up over McCain in their daily tracking poll for 19 consecutive days, as of yesterday.
