Breaking News: Obama Thunders Ahead in Key Battleground Sates

According to polling data released by Quinnipiac University just hours ago, Barack Obama has taken statistically significant leads over John McCain in three crucial battleground states. Especially noteworthy is the finding that Obama is at or above the fifty percent mark in each of these states.

Florida: Obama 51%, McCain 43%  

Ohio: Obama 50%, McCain 42%

Pennsylvania: Obama 54%, McCain 39%

In all three states, the latest survey numbers show major gains for Obama since the previous polls by Quinnipiac. Internals of the polls suggest Obama's surge was fueled by economic concerns, his strong performance in the first presidential debate and the continuing collapse of McCain running mate, Sarah Palin.
