Selzer Poll Shows 13 Pt. Obama Lead in Michigan

Just yesterday I said to DJ, "I wish they would do a Selzer poll".

Ask and ye shall receive. 13 points from Selzer. Yowza.

The Detroit Free Press/Local 4 Michigan Poll shows the Democratic senator from Illinois with a commanding lead of 13 points over Republican John McCain in the presidential race. Obama’s lead of 51% to 38% in the poll is nearly double the edge he had a month ago in a Michigan Poll taken just before the Democratic convention in Denver.

And those worrisome women? No problem. The bloom is off the Palin rose. (edited to add: to find out the reasons why, just read gsp's Couric interview diary).

The poll showed momentum swinging clearly to Obama in almost every demographic. Among women, his lead is now 54%-35% -- eight points better than it was a month ago, before the Democratic and Republican national conventions and McCain’s selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. Among independents, Obama enjoys a 14-point lead.

I'm feeling much better now.
