Fox News Sees Strong Obama Lead

A Fox News Poll finds that Obama leads McCain by nine points among likely voters:

Obama 49
McCain 40

Key findings include:
Eighty-eight percent of Democrats support Obama, and 83 percent of Republicans back McCain. Independents break 44 percent to 35 percent in Obama's favor.

In addition to independents, white Catholics are another important swing voting group and they support Obama 50 percent to 39 percent. White Catholics have voted for the winner in each of the last four presidential elections.

New voters — people who have registered to vote in the last two years — back Obama by 51 percent to 40 percent.
The margin in this poll is two points greater than the margin in their last poll, released October 10. That poll shows Obama over McCain 46-39.
