  • Barack Obama widened his lead considerably over John McCain in four key battleground states during the past three weeks.
  • Obama holds double-digit margins over McCain in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin and carries a nine-point advantage over his Republican rival in Colorado, according to polling conducted by Quinnipiac University for washingtonpost.com and the Wall Street Journal.
  • Obama’s ascendancy in these key states mirrors his growing lead in national
  • polling.
  • The latest Washington Post/ABC News survey put Obama at 53 percent to McCain’s 43 percent, while the daily Gallup tracking poll showed Obama holding a similar lead of 51 percent to 41 percent on Monday.
