Super Tuesday Results Give Obama A Lift

Posted February 8, 2008 at 3:35pm

It looks like Barack Obama’s performance on Super Tuesday has given him some lift. The Gallup daily tracking poll for Feb. 5-7, which now contains two days of interviewing following the primaries, shows Hillary Clinton’s lead down to 49 percent to 42 percent, compared to her 11 and 13 point margins in the two previous polls. On the Republican side, the poll still counted Mitt Romney for the two days before he withdrew, and showed John McCain at 46 percent, Romney at 19 percent and Huckabee at 18 percent. Gallup said it detected no sunstantial movement towards Huckabee with Romney’s departure. The margin of error is 3 points.
