Early Lead…

“…SurveyUSA has conducted polling in five states where some form of early voting was underway. In each one, Barack Obama is doing profoundly better among early voters than among the state’s electorate as a whole… Obama is leading by an average of 23 points among early voters in these five states, states which went to George W. Bush by an average of 6.5 points in 2004.” Those states include Ohio, Iowa, Georgia, New Mexico and North Carolina. [FiveThirtyEight]
