(CNN) - Barack Obama holds a 6-point lead over John McCain in the latest CNN poll of polls.
The new average of the five most recent national surveys of registered voters shows the Illinois senator at 47 percent with McCain standing at 41 percent. About 12 percent say they are undecided.
The margin between the two presidential candidates has remained remarkably consistent since the prolonged Democratic presidential race came to an end in early June. In a CNN poll of polls taken June 3, Obama and McCain were also separated by 6 points.
