Obama Could Win California in Historic Blowout

Obama in Virginia rain
San Diego: Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama could be headed for a blowout of historic proportions in California on Tuesday, a new Field Poll shows.

The nonpartisan statewide survey shows Obama leading Republican nominee Sen. John McCain 55 percent to 33 percent among voters considered likely to cast ballots on Election Day. An additional 4 percent favor one of the minor-party candidates and the remaining 8 percent are undecided.
If Obama's 22-point lead holds, it would represent the biggest presidential landslide in California since World War II. Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson carried California by more than 18 points in 1964. Republican Ronald Reagan won by nearly 17 points in 1980 and about 16 in 1984.
