Posted February 17, 2008 at 3:15pm

Barack Obama remains ahead in Gallup’s daily tracking poll, 48 percent to 43 percent, still beyond the 3 point margin of error, but with the lead slightly reduced from the 49 percent to 42 percent he enjoyed a day earlier. The poll was conducted Feb.14-16. The race on the Republican side is pretty much where it was — John McCain leading Mike Huckabee 53 percent to 29 percent.
