just-released ABC/Wash Post poll. First, the top line is that the poll found what nearly all others have detected since the DNC--Obama with about a 5% lead. This poll, however, notes that this is for "registered voter" but when they calculate (always risky) "likely voters" that drops to 1%. But there are many specific results that clearly support Obama.
Now, the fun questions--but are these results significant? Perhaps. They certainly fly in face of pundit claims that most Americans distrust or can't relate to Obama.
"Who do you think would make a more loyal friend?" Obama wins 50%-36%.
"Who would you prefer to have take care of you if you were sick?" Obama by 49%-36%.
"Who would you rather invite to dinner at your home?" Obama by 52%-33%
