Field Poll researchers say in California Obama is ahead of Republican candidate John McCain 55-to-33 percent. If that 22-point lead holds— they say it would represent the largest winning margin of any presidential candidate in the state—since World War Two. The survey examined support for the two Presidential candidates in a wide number of areas. It shows Obama is strongest in Los Angeles County and the nine county San Francisco Bay area and coastal voters vastly prefer Obama. Inland county voters favor McCain. Voters in the 18-34 age group prefer the Obama-Biden ticket nearly three-to-one. Voters age 65 or older are supporting McCain 45-to-41 percent.
