The LA Times has just released a new national poll.
Obama 49 McCain 37
The lead extends to 15 points when you factor in Nader and Bob Barr.
Obama 48 McCain 33
Obama's lead is due to his stance on domestic issues. He leads among women, black voters and other minorities. And he ties among white voters and independents. So much for the racial problem.
The most exciting news is the enthusiasm gap. 81% of Obama voters are enthusiastic about voting for him, versus 45% of McCain voters who feel the same.
Interesting nuggets. Bush's approval is down to 23%.
Democrats viewed favorably by 51%, Republicans by 29%.
Guess that Newsweek poll was not an outlier.
