Obama up three in North Dakota

And now in other news…. Here’s something good on the second night of the GOP convention from what has been a reliably red state.

A new poll in North Dakota has Obama up by three: 43 – 40. I’m told by reliable sources that it’s a reliable poll conducted by DFM Research (400 respondents with a margin of error of +/-5%).

Here’s the key question:

Q5: Turning to the upcoming election. If the election for President was held today, for whom would you vote? Barack Obama the Democrat, John McCain the Republican? (ROTATE NAMES)

Barack Obama …………………….. 43%
John McCain …..……………………. 40
(VOL) Other candidate ……….…… 5
(VOL) Unsure ……………………… 12

Yes, we’re talking North Dakota. According to Pollster.com, two polls from July also show a close race.
