A new national poll suggests Barack Obama is widening his lead over John McCain in the race for the White House.

The Opinion Research Corporation poll out Monday afternoon suggests that the country's financial crisis, record low approval ratings for President Bush and a drop in the public's perception of McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, are contributing to Obama's gains.

Fifty-three percent of likely voters questioned in the poll say they are backing Obama for president, with 45 percent supporting McCain.

The financial crisis also appears to be contributing to Obama's increased lead in the poll. Sixty-eight percent are confident in the Democratic presidential nominee's ability to handle the financial crisis, 18 points ahead of McCain, and 42 points ahead of Bush.

A majority of Americans now believe that Sarah Palin would be unqualified to serve as president if it became necessary, and her unfavorable rating has doubled,"

Poor Barney Frank. Now he's playing the race card. It might be worth the 700 billion just to see him get defeated in the next election.

Republicans have caused the problems that we are now facing. Listening to all the proganda that they are feeding us now they are trying to make the Democrats who just took over in 2007 as the fall guys.
Wake up America and do not fall for this nonsense. God gave us all a brain so let's use it. We have two more weeks before the election so listen to more news stations other than Fox and CNN they are ruining this country.
How do you think we have gotten into this mess for the past 8 years with all the push for one party and now our country is suffering. Listen to PBS once in awhile and get more informed then vote intelligenly and get this country moving forward again.
