My old Google account was overtaken by spam, and so I'm transitioning to a new Google account.

Is there a way to migrate my Stack Overflow identity to the new Google ID?

The answers to this question might help you. But they're pretty old, so it's very possible that things have changed to make this dance a little bit easier. –  Cody Gray May 16 '11 at 14:01

In your user profile, close to "edit," there is the "add openid" link; using that link you can add another OpenID account (in your case, the new Google account). If you have already defined two OpenID accounts, the link I reported becomes "change openid;" using that link you change the alternative account you already defined.

You can also swap the main OpenID account, and the alternate account.
Both the OpenID credentials are copied to the other SE account, when you click on the "Copy Meta Stack Overflow login credentials to all Stack Exchange accounts" button you find, for example, in http://meta.stackoverflow.com/users/162101/user162101?tab=accounts.
