Barack Obama has a 6-point lead over John McCain among all adults in a new Washington Post poll, and a 4-point lead among registered voters.

And there's this:

Obama has the support of nearly seven in 10 white women who describe themselves as feminists.

That's right -- not even 70% of this group.

A little reminder for the other 30+%:

More from Elisabeth Bumiller in today's New York Times:

On abortion, Mr. McCain has long been opposed, and is in fact more explicit than the president in his opposition to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a constitutional right to abortion. Although Mr. Bush has spoken about changing American "hearts and minds" to build a "culture of life," Mr. McCain has said directly, in South Carolina in 2007, that Roe v. Wade "should be overturned."
