Hillary Bounces back on Rasmussen

From today's Rasmussen-

In the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, Senator Hillary Clinton has bounced back. She is now supported by 44% of Likely Democratic Primary Voters, up from a recent low of 39%. Senator Barack Obama earns the vote from 19% while former Senator John Edwards remains at 15%. No other candidate tops the 3% level among Likely Democratic Primary Voters (see recent daily numbers).

The Democrats are more pleased with their candidates—73% offer a favorable opinion of Clinton while 67% say the same for both Obama and Edwards. Clinton’s numbers are down slightly from previous weeks, Obama is up slightly, while the numbers for Edwards are fairly stable (see history of favorable ratings for the candidates among all voters and among Democratic voters.

No, it's not all good news, her lead in New Hampshire has shrunk some.  Since that state was polled as many being strongly against "Immigrant driver's licenses," it could be the result of that more than the negative campaigning by Edwards or Obama- or to be fair, they could be producing results with the supposed waffling issue.

At any rate, much has been made of her recent drop on Rasmussen with several diaries pointing to it and proclaiming her demise- though of course her holding steady back where she was is what will really count, this at least is an indication it is not the steady collapse some have hoped for and she is regaining what she has lost.  Although truthfully, her rise was never completely consistently upward and she has had several slight dips before and come back.  But the debate and bad press has had some impact and it is still affecting polls, but at least here we see what might be a reversal and that is good news for Clinton supporters.

NH and IA always follow national trend. I said repeatedly that state polls are usually lagging indicators. All three NH polls were taken roughly in the same period(Nov 5 - Nov 7)...

She will probably bounce back to abount 15 points in the next batches of NH polls.

She just bounced back! You are FOOLING yourself.

You think voters changes their minds as quickly as Hillary is changing her position?

Answer: NO!

Why don't you actually contribute to the discourse with quality and substantive comments instead of resorting to the same attack politics this country is trying to move away from.

Edwards apparently did not get the message.

Edwards is still at 15%, so what ever happened to "If he takes on Hillary's record, he will drop, drop, drop." Apparently that hasn't happened, in fact, he's only increased his support, which has now stablized higher than before. It's funny, voters have a mind of their own.

She's down! She's up!

That'll teach people to pin their hopes to a small sample daily poll.
