Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama has surged to a 15-point lead over Republican John McCain in the latest Newsweek poll out Friday, by far the biggest margin of any recent survey.It's just one poll and it comes from a rag that is generally considered to be the most liberal of the three major news weeklies. Then too no other credible poll I've seen has Barack up by more then 5 points, so at the end of the day this is just Newsweek showcasing its biased, liberal ass. That said, in the real world it's still a close race.
The magazine's poll gave Obama 51 percent to 36 percent for McCain among registered voters nationwide -- three times the margin of four to five points that other polls this week have given the Illinois senator.
Obama is enjoying a post-primary bounce after seeing off the dogged challenge of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton earlier this month, and supporters of the former first lady are flocking to his side, Newsweek said.
