THE POLL: The Field Poll on the presidential race among likely votes in California (55 electoral votes).
THE NUMBERS: Barack Obama, 55 percent; John McCain, 33 percent.
INTEREST: If the poll accurately reflects the outcome on Election Day,
it would be the most lopsided presidential election in California since
Democrat Franklin Roosevelt beat Republican Alfred Landon by 35
percentage points in 1936. The results are similar to a Public Policy
Institute of California Poll released last week, which had Obama
leading McCain by 23 points.
THE DETAILS: Conducted Oct. 18-28 by
telephone with 966 likely voters. Margin of sampling error plus or
minus 3.3 percentage points.
