Obama leads McCain 51-36 Newsweek Poll

The last national Newsweek poll was done in late May prior to Obama clinching the Democratic Party nomination. The results back then were quite different, showing a 46-46 tie. This current nationwide poll involved registered voters and has a margin of error of 4 points. Poll data here.

This 15 point lead by Obama over McCain is much better than his recent predecessors, John Kerry and Al Gore polled at this point in the 2000 and 2004 campaigns. In 2000 Al Gore was tied with George W. Bush 45-45 and in 2004 John Kerry led Bush 51-45. Read more here.

A long way to go but this is good news. Stay tuned.
