2008_10_obamca.jpgThe Siena Research Institute says Barack Obama's lead in NY has grown to 62% over John McCain's 31%. As it happens, Siena also reported last month that Obama's lead over McCain was just 5 points. The poll also found the nearly eight in 10 New York residents agree with Governor Paterson that the economy is as bad at the Great Depression. In other political news, the ATF reports that it stopped a skinhead plot to kill Obama and other blacks, some doofus has a Sarah Palin effigy outside a house in Los Angeles, every day is voting day with early voting and radio ads has made a comeback thanks to campaign ads, which have also lined the pockets of local and network TV shows.
