Another poll, another Obama lead

This time it's the CNN/Time/Opinion Research Poll and it shows Barack Obama at 51 percent in Florida among likely voters compared with John McCain at 47 percent.

The poll shows a clear bump for Obama among registered voters: 54 percent to 43 percent for McCain, compared to a dead heat -- 48 to 48 two weeks ago.

CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider had this to say about the poll: "The campaign season is like the hurricane season. Florida lies directly in its path. Hurricane Obama hit Florida, and Hurricane McCain. Tropical Storms Biden and Palin made landfall in the Sunshine State. The impact? Over the last two weeks, Barack Obama has been gaining support in Florida."
