Obama keeps rising according to the latest numbers from Gallup. This latest poll shows a similar trend to Rasmussen latest poll in which Obama gains +3 and Hillary gains +1.
The latest Democratic numbers show Hillary Clinton with a 43% to 39% advantage over Barack Obama among Democratic voters nationwide. That 4-point lead is the narrowest since early January, and it is a continuation of gains by Obama. The impact of John Edwards' exit from the Democratic race is less clear. Wednesday night's numbers (the first with Edwards excluded from the ballot) show no clear indication that either candidate is benefiting disproportionately. Clinton and Obama will debate in California tonight, which could affect Democrats' support for the two candidates going into the weekend before Super Tuesday's primaries and caucuses
This must be good news for the Obama camp as momentum seems clearly to be swing their way.
