Look Who Voters Prefer on Iraq Now
Eric Kleefeld at TPM digs through the newest Pew poll — which finds a ginormous 52 to 38 lead for Sen. Barack Obama over Sen. John McCain — and finds something interesting. Obama has almost entirely flipped McCain’s lead on who voters trust to handle the Iraq war. Quoth Eric:
On Iraq, McCain led by seven points in early September, 48%-41%, but now it’s Obama with a six-point advantage, 48%-42%
And no, this wasn’t a poll of Iraqis.
