Gallup National Daily Tracking Poll: Hillary Rebounds

For what it's worth, via My DD: The Gallup Daily Tracking poll has a Hillary rebound. It's now Hillary 45%, Obama 46% with Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters.

Clinton was seven percentage points behind Obama in the Feb. 15-17 average. In Monday night's interviewing, Clinton's percentage of the vote of national voters was higher than Obama's, but there has been fluidity in the nightly tracking numbers over the past several days as Democrats nationally process the intense, often heated, nature of the campaign. Monday's news coverage of the Democratic campaign was replete with a focus on the Clinton campaign's charges that Obama had plagiarized material from Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and other negative attacks on Obama by the Clinton campaign. It is unclear which, if any, of these factors could be responsible for changes in the candidates' standing.

    Though he might win tonight in Wisconsin, the effects of the gaffes, the unoriginal speeches, Michelle's absolutely stupid statement will show by the end of the week.

    on whether his near certain WI and HI wins crowd that stuff out for another few cycles.

    But the media may be turning on him, a bit. It's too early to tell, IMO, but this last week has not been encouraging for him on that front.

    The media wanted the Dems saddled with a fatally compromised candidate. As usual they will likely get their wish.

    It ain't over till the fat lady sings (none / 0) (#2)

    There's nothing deadlier for a politician than having your credibility called into question.  Did he think no one would notice?  
    And then Michelle stepped into it again.  Stupid, stupid, stupid.  

    Seems like calling W's credibility (none / 0) (#10)

    McCain wrapped up Obama in 3 words.

    I just hope and pray Hillary makes her stand in TX and OH or we are all doomed to 4 more years of Bush (McCain).
