From the New York Times:
Over all, the poll found that if the election were held today, 53 percent of those determined to be probable voters said they would vote for Mr. Obama and 39 percent said they would vote for Mr. McCain.Yeah, sure! A fourteen point lead is okay. But wouldn't Generic Democrat be whipping McCain by TWENTY? Why can't Barack Obama close the deal? Hopefully, Generic Democrat will make an appearance at the debate, to offer his plan for "winning" and his support for "nice things!"
The findings come as the race enters its final three weeks, with the two candidates scheduled to hold their third and last debate on Wednesday night, and as separate polls in critical swing states that could decide the election give Mr. Obama a growing edge. But wide gaps in polls have historically tended to narrow in the closing weeks of the race.
