New poll shows Obama ahead, with ominous signs for McCain

Among all voters, Democrat Barack Obama leads Republican John McCain by 48 to 40 percent, a Pew Research Center survey shows. Independents were nearly evenly divided between the two candidates, but 46 percent were undecided. Ominously for McCain, 25 percent of conservative Republicans are not solidly in his camp and only 35 percent of his supporters said they back him strongly.
