Clinton Does Better Than Obama in One Match-Up with McCain
Barack Obama has clearly emerged in Gallup’s daily tracking poll as the favorite of Democrats over Hillary Clinton, but Clinton does slightly better than Obama in its May 19-23 survey when matched against John McCain. She leads McCain 49 percent to 45 percent with 3 percent undecided and 3 percent choosing neither, while Obama is in a statistical dead heat with McCain, with McCain ahead 46 percent to 45 percent with 4 percent undecided and 4 percent not stating a preference for wither. The margin of error is 2 percent. Clinton has pretty consistently had modest leads over McCain since early May, while Obama and McCain have traded the top position several times during the month.
