Gallup: Hillary Moves Within 3
It’s obvious that debate hurt him. Especially since people now think he’s best buddies with a 60s radical who bombed government buildings and that he hates the American flag.
In Thursday night’s interviewing, Clinton received a greater share of national Democratic support than Obama, the first time she has done so in an individual night’s interviewing since April 3.

Until today, he had led Clinton by a statistically significant margin in each of the prior 11 Gallup releases.
