Gallup: Obama Leads By 2
Looks like he’s not getting the post NC/IN bump he was hoping for.
These results are based on May 6-8 interviewing, with roughly two-thirds of the interviews completed after the results of the North Carolina and Indiana primaries were known. The discussion among political experts following Obama’s big North Carolina win and Clinton’s slim Indiana victory has centered on when, not if, Clinton will drop out of the nomination contest. With just six smaller state primaries remaining, it is unlikely Clinton can overcome Obama’s lead in pledged convention delegates.
Despite this talk, Obama remains in a statistical dead heat with Clinton for the 16th consecutive day. After a stronger showing in Wednesday’s interviewing, Obama just barely edged out Clinton in Thursday interviewing, leaving him with just a two percentage point advantage in the three-day rolling average that also includes Tuesday’s night-of-primary interviewing. Saturday’s update will be the first to include completely post-Indiana/North Carolina interviewing.
