Gallup: Obama Leads McCain By 2

0

A very slight widening of his lead over the past couple days…

The details…

Today’s results, based on Gallup Poll Daily tracking from June 3-7, represent the most positive position Obama has been in versus McCain since mid-May, when he led the presumptive Republican nominee by three percentage points. Since then, Obama either has tied or slightly trailed McCain, or at best been one percentage point ahead (although not a statistically significant lead).

Within the current five-day rolling average, Obama has exceeded McCain by a fair margin in each of the last three individual nights of Gallup polling, all conducted since Hillary Clinton announced she would be ending her bid for the Democratic nomination. It appears that her exit decision had the immediate effect of releasing some of her supporters to back Obama in the general election. If this continues in interviews conducted Sunday, Obama should have a clear lead over McCain in Monday’s release.

More tomorrow…
