Gallup’s daily tracking report for Feb. 7-9, which did not include the impact of Barack Obama’s triumphant weekend, has Hillary Clinton in fron by 48 percent to 43 percent with a 3 point margin of error. This was the same margin as the previous tracking poll but a drop for Clinton from the Feb .4-6 survey where she led 51 percent to 40 percent.

John McCain leads Mike Huckabee 57 percent to 23 percent, now that Mitt Romney’s drop-out has fully removed him from the poll’s three day rolling average. McCain has been the beneficiary of Romney’s withdrawal.McCain picked up 17 points while Huckabee gained only two.
