Sen. Barack Obama's prospects for victory in November have risen in opinion polls released this week. Here's a summary from Politico.
Riding a wave of worry about the nation's financial health, Sen. Barack Obama has broken into a lead in a national poll and has made slight but notable progress in several crucial battleground states, including Florida and Virginia.
Obama moved decisively ahead of Sen. John McCain in a Washington Post-ABC News Poll. And a new Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll found that respondents thought Obama would do a better job handing the financial crisis than McCain, by 45 percent to 33 percent.
