Poll gives Obama edge in two of three key states
ST. PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) -- A new poll suggests that Barack Obama is widening his lead over John McCain in two battleground states but indicates the race is dead even in Ohio, the state that decided the last presidential election.
In a CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corp. survey out Wednesday afternoon, 55 percent of Iowa registered voters who were questioned said that Obama, D-Illinois, is their choice for president, with 40 percent backing McCain, R-Arizona. That's more than double the lead Obama had in a University of Iowa poll taken early last month.
"Obama is winning in all regions of the state, even in the western counties, where George W. Bush beat John Kerry by 17 points," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. "Obama is winning rural voters in Iowa, not something you see in many other states."
Iowa's caucuses kicked off the presidential primary season and launched Obama toward the Democratic presidential nomination.
"Iowa was Barack Obama's breakthrough state. He won the Democratic caucuses with a powerful organization. John McCain barely competed in the Iowa Republican caucuses. He came in fourth," said Bill Schneider, a CNN senior political analyst.
"Obama retains a strong organization in Iowa, where McCain is just beginning to get started," Schneider said.
It appears to be a similar story in Minnesota, where the Republicans are holding their national convention this week.
The poll indicates that Obama has a 12-point lead over McCain, 53 percent to 41 percent.

Watermock - RIP
But according to IBOAB all the polls have McCain leading. And Palin is the savior of all saviors.

If I was running the Obama campaign I'd put Hillary and Bubba in Ohio and leave them there until November.
