Obama Takes the Lead in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida

This is great news for Democrats!

For the first time, White House hopeful Barack Obama leads his Republican rival John McCain in three of the biggest battlegrounds of November's election, according to a new poll Wednesday.

The surveys by Quinnipiac University also found independent voters are opposed to defeated primary contender Hillary Clinton running as Obama's running mate on the Democratic ticket.

Another poll out Wednesday by Zogby had Obama leading McCain by 47 percent to 42 nationally, with a 22-point lead among all-important independents.

The Quinnipiac polls had Obama besting McCain 52-40 percent in Pennsylvania, 48-42 percent in Ohio, and 47-43 in Florida. All three states are crucial building blocks to an election triumph for either candidate in November.

In all three states, Obama leads McCain among female voters by 10 to 23 percentage points, but among men the two contenders are "too close to call," Quinnipiac University Polling Institute assistant director Peter Brown said.

Whoever wins Ohio will win the election. My best guest is that Florida may slip to McCain just like all the other Southern states will, unless there is an Obama lanslide of 55-45 percent. If anyone could tell me who will win Ohio in November, then I can tell you who will be the next president. Ohio is a perfect microcosm of the U.S. as a whole and the best test lab state. New Mexico also comes close in that same regard.
