Politics: On the trail

A new Ipos/McClatchy poll out Tuesday found that Sen. Barack Obama is entering the homestretch with a 50 percent to 42 percent lead over John McCain, and appears to be gaining strength on key issues despite much criticism from McCain.

Republican Sen. John McCain will return today to Florida to keep spreading his message of lower taxes. McCain will hold public rallies on both Florida coasts, in Ormond Beach and Sarasota.
