AP Poll: Obama leads Clinton nationally
Associated Press ^ | March 27, 2008

Posted on 03/27/2008 1:31:12 PM PDT by cdchik123

THE RACE: The presidential race for Democrats nationally

THE NUMBERS

Barack Obama, 49 percent

Hillary Rodham Clinton, 39 percent

___

OF INTEREST:

The two rivals' standings in the Pew Research Center poll have changed little from late February, the latest indication that so far Obama has weathered the controversy over provocative sermons by his longtime pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. While Obama has a mostly favorable image among white Democrats, those with unfavorable views about him are likelier to say equal rights for minorities have gone too far and to oppose interracial dating. Almost one in four white Democrats who view Obama unfavorably also think he is Muslim, when in fact he is Christian. Obama and Clinton both continue to hold slender leads nationally in matchups against the all-but-certain Republican candidate, John McCain.

The truth of the entire race matter as it applies to Obama and his core beliefs is being covered over. Wright preaches the way he does for a reason. The theology embraced by that chruch and its long-time attendees (like the Obama's) is clear.

Pew and NBC polls are useless.

Rasmussen is the gold standard for pollsters.

Amazing that how much racism has been displayed by obama , his wife and his friends there are still dopes out there which would vote for him so either they are just plainly thick or agree with his racist views When are the media going to call obama what he is anyway, a racist this is really amazing, a racist black man and woman could get the white house, live there and he isn't all that shyb about his racist views now imagine if a white man republican had said things like typical black people, wouldn't salute the flag, infact the list is endless and yet dopes would vote for him In my eyes those who vote for him are just as bad as he, his wife, his rev and the congregation lets not forget his terrorist friend AMAZING

exactly

How just stupid are these people that they would even consider voting for a man who is clearly racist and anti american

of course the media are not doing their job which just sickens me
for the first time I watched MSNBC and was dumbfounded at just how this black anchor woman was going against clinton and sticking up for obama
then there is the likes of chris matthews, anderson cooper.

I’m not buying any of these polls. The MSM polls are little more than propaganda designed to influence the electorate into voting for their anointed candidate. I remember when most national polls had Reagan & Carter in a dead heat, or Carter slightly ahead, going into the 1980 election.

As I recall, the actual election was not all that close.

Let’s see the internals on this poll, until those are revealed it is useless.

Today’s Rasmussen Numbers:

Looking ahead to the General Election in November, John McCain continues to lead both potential Democratic opponents. McCain leads Barack Obama 51% to 41% and Hillary Clinton 51% to 41% (see recent daily results). McCain is now viewed favorably by 56% of voters nationwide and unfavorably by 41%. Obama’s reviews are 46% favorable and 52% unfavorable. For Clinton, those numbers are 44% favorable, 54% unfavorable (see recent daily results).

this is what I mean we all know about Obama now even after his racist remarks ,friends and lies about not hearing anything then surely everyone must have heard about it
surely even the media who have been downplaying his racist views could not hide it all together

so we have people who would vote for him either they agree with him or are just plain stupid

those with unfavorable views about him are likelier to say equal rights for minorities have gone too far and to oppose interracial dating.

I was almost afraid they weren't going to remember to use the racist card.

Sounds like a sizeable number of the white folk over 70 that I know. Keep in mind that the "interracial dating" thing is usually opposed by elderly black folks as well.

Or they don't pay attention to the details and believe that the news is over sensationalized.

Very few people have much faith in the media, and they are used to the media sensationalizing everything. There are a lot of people who won't put much faith in what they hear about Wright.

They will ignore the facts and the details, and they will vote for the person they like the most, and Obama comes across as very likable.

Rasmussen is reporting a different result (for what it's worth!

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday continues to show a very close competition in the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. It’s Clinton 46%, Obama 44%. Since Obama’s speech on race and national unity, Obama’s support has been within two percentage points of 45% every day. Clinton’s support has been within two percentage points of 44% every day (see recent daily results)

New polling data released today shows that Sixty-two percent (62%) of Democrats aren’t ready for either candidate to drop out of the race.

Folks, AP never met a Republican they liked. I would like to see the questions, how they were worded. To say that this Rev. Wright controversy hasn’t hurt Obama is burying your head in the sand, something the MSM is very good at when it comes to Democrats.

Yet when you really think about it,Hillary and Bill have been pushing affirmative action-race based identity politics for way longer than Obama.
How come anyone never calls HER on that issue?

To: Riverman94610

true

I think affirmative action is the worst programme out there

MLK said we are all equal so why do minorities get special rights to jobs, housing, schools etc etc.
I had a friend who applied for the boston firefighters and even though he got 98% he was refused as they gave a black man the job because of racial numbers, two years he tried for that job training hard.
In the end he took Boston to court him and another friend

But you are right in what you say and just think how the likes of the clintons feel. They have pushed this programme for some time and as soon as a black man runs for the nominee blacks rush to the black man and ignore clinton

wonder if she feels stabbed in the back over this and if she ever did get the nominee then would blacks still get special deals from her

Translation: those who have unfavorable views are RACISTS!! Typical AP BS.
