The latest poll conducted today by Research and Research is showing Clinton with a double digit 13% lead in the Puerto Rico Primary scheduled for June 1.
In addition to Puerto Rico, Clinton continues to maintain her lead in the upcoming primary states of Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Clinton is also closing the gap in North Carolina and Oregon according to polls taken on April 8.
Here are some of the latest figures taken by various polling groups.
In PENNSYLVANIA: According to a Time survey taken April 2-6 Clinton has a 6% point lead, but the poll also states that twenty percent of Pennsylvania Democrats are still undecided, and roughly one in six could change to their candidate before the primary on April 22.http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/04/10/
Furthermore, Clinton has a history of ballot over-performance compared to polling under-performance.
A FOX News review of the final 10 Ohio polls before the March 4 primary showed Obama closing in on Clinton. In only one of those polls did Obama register as high as 47 percent. The rest had him much closer to his eventual primary day result of 44 percent. Clinton, meanwhile, showed poll numbers at or just below 50 percent. She finished with 54 percent despite rain, flooding and some confusion in key Clinton strongholds in eastern Ohio.
Another poll taken by Survey USA on April 8 is showing Clinton with a 16% point lead. Polling in this state seems to be all over the map, but if you average all of the polls taken between now and mid March, her lead has averaged around 10 to 12% points. Pennsylvania holds it's primary on April 22 or 12 days away. http://www.presidentpolls2008.com/primar
In INDIANA: Clinton continues to lead by 9% in a poll conducted on April 8 by Survey USA. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollRepo
Another Poll conducted on April 3 by American Research also shows Clinton up by 9%. Indiana holds it's primary on May 6, or 26 days away.
In NORTH CAROLINA: Clinton has closed the gap between herself and Obama according to a poll taken by Survey USA on April 8. Obama leads by 10% points. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollRepo
N.C. holds their primary on May 6.
In WEST VIRGINIA: Clinton maintains a commanding 28% point lead. This is one state in which Obama has absolutely no chance of winning and is taylor made for Clinton. She will carry this state my large margins. W.V. holds it's primary on May 13.
In KENTUCKY: Clinton holds a commanding 29% point lead since March 31. Kentucky holds their primary on May 20.
In OREGON: Clinton is apparently closing the gap in this state according to a recent poll taken on April 8 by Survey USA. Obama leads by only 10%. It is important to remember that Oregon votes only by mail-in ballot. This process could actually favor Clinton in that she has done well with mail-in votes in the past. There are some media pundits reporting that Oregon could become a very close contest leading up to their primary on May 20th.
The other remaining contests, S.D. and Montana have yet to report any polling data. Their primaries are both scheduled for June 3
