Gallup: Obama keep rising. Now, 4 pts short of Clinton

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.

Look there is a limit of two diaries per day .

I hope you realize that .

This diary has been posted and its just a couple of post below your third diary in the last 2/3 hours.

If you failed to see it then something is out of whack.

Lori,
    I know why would you think my diary is not worthwhile.However, the diary similar to mine posted below is posted by Clinton supporter as you are, trying to put the best spin on these great numbers for Obama. If you don't like my diary because it seems repetitive, don't read it. Simple as that.

"Not worthwhile" is not what she said

There are rules on diaries per day.  They exist because everybody deserves to at least have a little time with their diary title in the side bar on the front page.

That's a good reason to have the rule.  I follow it, even though sometimes I would prefer not to.  Please follow the site rules.

I didn't say it wasn't worthwhile.

I am not really bothered with the information you have in there , but I just thought I would remind you of the diary limit.

You can live it on there if you want , at least you are not writing hit diaries.

It just gets ridicolous sometimes reading the same information especially if it has already been posted  especially when it seems you were aware of that.

Re: Gallup: Obama keep rising...

Keep up the good work. Ignore the haters. They do not like it when Obama supporters post good news.

Great News...

...but you do need to stick to the two diaries a day limit.  That's a legitimate rule that everyone needs to respect.

Re: Gallup:

Well I remember the "obama surging, hillary collapsing" diaries a few days ago. Obama went up 9 pts then proceeded to drop said points the next day. After all the press worship he doesn't seem to be able to catch her.

Re: Half of CA Voters Voted Weeks Ago

the latest Rasmussen poll has Obama pulling within three points of Hillary Clinton in California. Two weeks ago, Rasmussen had Clinton 5 points ahead.

So, Obama has only come up 2 points in two weeks in Rasmussen polling.

Where will the votes of Edwards supporters fall?

Well, most of them will go to Edwards! Why?

Because fully HALF of the Democrats registered to vote in California will do so by absentee ballot, and voting started on January 7.

Early voting has been going on for some time now. That's going to be good for Clinton.
