CBS Poll: Obama Gets His Mojo Back
I tend to trust Gallup’s daily numbers a bit more, but they showed increased support for Obama today, so maybe CBS is amplifying that trend.
(CBS) Democrat Barack Obama appears to have rebounded from some of the damage caused by the controversy surrounding his former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll.
Positive assessments of how Obama has handled the situation with Wright are also reflected by a continued lead over fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton in his battle for their partyâ€™s nomination. Among Democratic primary voters (those who have voted or plan to vote in a Democratic primary) Obamaâ€™s lead over Clinton has increased — he now leads Clinton by twelve points, 50 percent to 38 percent. Thatâ€™s up from his eight point lead in the poll released just a few days ago.
In other news, Rasmussen shows that Obama and Clinton are tied at 45%.
