Undec 10%

- Obama holds a double-digit lead in battleground states. Among RVs surveyed in CO, MI, NH, NM, FL, OH, PA, VA, WI and NV, the IL Sen. leads 50-40%. One week ago (in the survey completed 9/22), he led 45-42%.

- Enthusiasm for the Dem ticket continues to outpace enthusiasm for McCain. 68% of Obama voters are enthusiastic about their candidate, while only 46% of McCain voters say the same. A week ago, that 22% gap was just 7% -- 58% were enthusiastic for Obama and 51% were enthusiastic for McCain.

- The GOP ticket now holds the advantage among white women. McCain leads 46-40%, up from his 1% deficit a week earlier.
