More good polling news for Obama…

According to a new NBC/WSJ/MySpace poll, new and lapsed voters (those who didn’t vote in 2004) back Obama over McCain by a 2-to-1 margin, 61%-30%.

But Obama still has a significant challenge to get [these new voters] to the polls.

A new round of Quinnipiac polls for Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania — taken before Friday’s debate and then after it — shows Obama leading McCain in all three states and hitting the 50% mark in the post-debate surveys.

This is more evidence that Obama appears to have won Friday’s debate, despite many analysts declaring it a draw.
