The CBS News/New York Times poll has both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton leading John McCain in head-to-head races by five points.
According to the poll, Obama leads McCain 47% to 42%, with Clinton leading McCain 48% to 43%.
As always, it is important to see how the poll's respondents break down by party -- a look which shows that those questioned self-identified 39% Dem, 28% Repub, and 33% independent in the unweighted sample. The weighted sample broke down 40% Dem, 26% Repub, and 34% independent.
The unweighted sample shows an 11-point margin for the Dems, while the weighted sample shows a 14-point margin.
Hmm... Democratic Presidential candidates lead against the Republican candidate in a poll where participants are by wide margins Democrats themselves.
In other news, CBS and The New York Times are biased organizations on their way out.
May their deaths come quickly.
