Q Poll: A fading Palin, a sinking economy puts Obama over 50 percent in Florida

At least that's what the latest Quinnipiac University swing state poll shows. The poll shows Barack Obama with an edge over John McCain in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The poll has Obama at 51 percent, post-Friday's debate, to McCain's 43 percent.

"It is difficult to find a modern competitive presidential race that has swung so dramatically, so quickly and so sharply this late in the campaign," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the school's polling institute. "In the last 20 days, Sen. Barack Obama has gone from seven points down to eight points up in Florida, while widening his leads to eight points in Ohio and 15 points in Pennsylvania."

"Sen. John McCain has his work cut out for him if he is to win the presidency and there does not appear to be a role model for such a comeback in the last half century," Brown added.
