Barack Obama has the largest lead yet over Hillary Clinton, just days after Clinton attempted to marginalize him with rural voters.
From USAToday’s On Politics:
Three days’ worth of polling after the news broke that Sen. Barack Obama said some small-town voters are “bitter,” he has edged out to his largest lead yet in Gallup’s daily national tracking survey.
Gallup says Obama leads Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 51%-40% according to its Saturday-Monday poll of 1,312 Democrats and voters who “lean” Democratic. Yesterday, Obama lead 50%-40% (matching what had been his largest lead until today). The margin of error: +/- 3 percentage points.
Hillary’s numbers are only going to continue sinking around the country. Especially if her husband continues to marginalize young voters by telling them they’re too easily fooled.
