New ARG NM Poll: Obama 51%, McCain 44%

A new American Research Group poll that surveyed 600 likely voters in New Mexico on September 14-16 shows Obama pulling away from McCain 51-44% with 5% undecided and a margin of error of plus or minus 4 points.

Obama was also ahead with Independent voters 50-41%, women voters by 61-35%, 18-29 year olds by 53-41% and those 50 and older 49-48%. McCain came out ahead only with men voters, 55-39%

Political Wire reports additional ARG poll results in these states showing tight races, many within the margin of error. Surprising numbers in Montana and West Virginia:

Colorado: McCain 46%, Obama 44%
Missouri: McCain 50%, Obama 45%
Montana: McCain 49%, Obama 47%
Nevada: McCain 49%, Obama 46%
North Carolina: McCain 52%, Obama 41%
Ohio: McCain 50%, Obama 44%
West Virginia: McCain 49%, Obama 45%

Meanwhile, today's Gallup Tracking Poll has Obama ahead for the first time since the GOP convention, 47-45%. Tight but trending our way ....

I read somewhere that Obama has a slight lead in Indiana, yes, Red State Indiana. That lead may or may not hold or increase but to me it says much about how people are starting to wake up.
