Skip to comments.AP Poll: Obama leads Clinton nationally
Posted on 03/27/2008 1:31:12 PM PDT by cdchik123
THE RACE: The presidential race for Democrats nationally
Barack Obama, 49 percent
Hillary Rodham Clinton, 39 percent
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.

And morally, ethically, etc. And I still don't trust him.
Pew and NBC polls are useless.
Rasmussen is the gold standard for pollsters.
Gullible enough to select Osama and Hitlery as front-runners.
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.
Doesn't matter. She's more electable ...at three o'clock in the morning...or something like that. Oh yeah, have to count all the votes too.
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%. Obamas 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
I watched MSNBC earlier today for the first time in ages and they was really spinning the numbers for obama like crazy.
you have all that and still theres more like
the jew comments,
the Italian comment
the terrorist friend he has,
his wifes racist writings
no record to speak of
his shady dealings with his slumlord pal
it just goes on and on
so could one tell me please as to why anyone would vote for this obama guy unless they agree with his black power, africa all the way , down with America
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.
If Obama gets elected what will happen to us “typical white folks?”
Funny how Rasmussen results are never reported.
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.
Correction, make that 10 pts.
We will be forced to convert.
::::shrug:::: Seems to depend on the poll. Heard about one on the radio yesterday that said McCain was ahead of both Clinton and Obama.
I don't think so. They're both slime.
Yeah, imagine the Black Panthers will police powers, automatic weapons and FBI dossiers. Imagine Nation of Islam Lawyers as federal judges. Imagine a mass pardon of blacks from Obama's Presidential pardon powers.
Sometimes I think these polls are like taking your pulse every five minutes. How much of this is necessary?
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday continues to show a very close competition in the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. Its Clinton 46%, Obama 44%. Since Obamas speech on race and national unity, Obamas support has been within two percentage points of 45% every day. Clintons 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 arent ready for either candidate to drop out of the race.
52% Unfavorable for Obama. Wow. That's gotta hurt.
ah not too mention what kind of guests would be invited to the white house, including the likes of irans leader
would he increase immigration from africa
would tax money be increased to africa
would reperations be called for
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?
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.
