Nearly two-thirds of all voters believe Barack Obama will win the Democratic nomination and about one-third say Hillary Clinton should drop out, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted April 9-10. The 62 percent that predict an Obama victory is up from 54 percent last month, and the number of those who think Clinton should give it up rose 10 points. Eight-five percent of Democrats nevertheless say they believe that it is at least somewhat likely the nomination battle will be unresolved by the time of the convention. Forty-eight percent of Democrats think Obama would be the stronger candidate against John McCain, while 38 percent name Clinton.
