Obama/McCain up in Gallup poll

A recently released USAToday/Gallup poll has Barack Obama 13 points up on Hillary Clinton with 41 percent. John McCain is up 4 points on Mitt Romney.

The complete poll results are below from USA Today. It is to be noted that the poll has a four percent margin of error putting Obama way above the margin of error while McCain is right in the margin of error.

This is a another bit hit for the Clinton campaign, as a string of respected polling agencies including Rasmussen, Zogby, and now Gallup have Obama soundly taking the lead in the New Hampshire Democratic primary. The string of favorable polls for McCain are just what he needs going into Tuesday’s primary, as it is likely that Mitt Romney will not survive a loss in New Hampshire.


Obama: 41%; up from 32% in the last USA TODAY/Gallup New Hampshire poll, taken in mid-December.
Clinton: 28%; down from 32%.
John Edwards: 19%; up from 18%.
Gov. Bill Richardson: 6%; down from 8%.
No one else above 3%.


McCain: 34%; up from 27% in mid-December.
Romney: 30%; down from 34%.
Mike Huckabee: 13%; up from 9%.
Rep. Ron Paul: 8%; down from 9%.
Rudy Giuliani: 8%; down from 11%.
No one else above 3%.
