Obama Holds Lead in US Presidential Race
    2008-11-02 11:37:57     CRIENGLISH.com

With three days to the United States presidential election, Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is holding stable or growing leads over his Republican opponent John McCain.

A new Associated Press-Yahoo News poll showed Obama leading McCain among all likely voters, 51 percent to 43 percent. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

Obama has opened his lead in the polls by linking his opponent to President George W. Bush, a fellow Republican who is heavily blamed for the US financial crisis.

"When it comes to the central issue of this election, the plain truth is that John McCain has stood with President Bush every step of the way. I mean, he hasn't been a maverick, he's been a sidekick."

Although falling behind with voters, Republican presidential nominee McCain on Friday intensified in must-win Ohio that he will never give up.

"Nothing is inevitable. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history, we make history. Now let's go win this election and get this country moving again. "
