Obama Pulling Away In New Hampshire Polls
The big bounce is upon us…
In the survey, conducted by the University of New Hampshire on Saturday and early Sunday, 39 percent of likely Granite State Democratic primary voters back Obama as the partyâ€™s nominee â€” thatâ€™s ten points ahead of Clintonâ€™s 29 percent. Obama is up six points and Clinton down four points from our survey conducted on Friday and early Saturday.
â€¢ Obama: 41%; up from 32% […]
â€¢ Clinton: 28%; down from 32%.
â€¢ John Edwards: 19%; up from 18%.
â€¢ Gov. Bill Richardson: 6%; down from 8%.
Only 50% of this sample is after the Iowa caucus results were known and there has been a 5-point swing on the Democratic side. Clinton started out leading 32% to 26% over Obama and now she is in a dead heat at 31% to 30%. Obama has won in that part of the sample taken since Iowa â€“ and just this past one day alone Obama led by 8 points.
In the Democratic Primary, Clinton (35 percent) leads Obama (33 percent), John Edwards (14 percent), Bill Richardson (5 percent), Dennis Kucinich (1 percent) and Mike Gravel (1 percent). Eleven percent were undecided.
â€œBarack Obama has cut a seventeen-point deficit to just two points today,â€ said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center. â€œHeâ€™s done this in four days with no sign of a slowing trend.â€
This is extremely bad news for the Clinton camp.
