Is this the first time Obama has breached that ~23-25% mark in a national support poll?

No, not at all. If you go back to the spring/summer, there were several other polls in which Obama hit 30%, or even a little higher.

But I think it is the first poll with Obama at 30% since July.

When are people going to start doing the research and find out that Ron Paul is far and away clearly the best candidate for president in 2008? Give America back to Americans here at home, bring our troops home and end this war. Make our country prosperous and peaceful, then our enemies will emulate. How can we bring democracy and peace by force with weapons? Where did we lose our morals? Stand against the brainwashing mechanism and learn for yourself!!!

Although I enjoyed the news about Oprah and Obama because I am one of those older women who likes Oprah, but I am also one who likes and supports Hillary. I will not change. Hillary is very intelligent and she is used to being knocked around by pundits and politicians. She can handle the heat better.

Joan, Obama is pretty intelligent too. He knew Iraq was a stupid war since the beginning.
And as of being able to take the heat, her declining numbers don't seem to back up your claim that she can handle it. .As you know, Clinton has been taking punches from left and right,and it's taken a toll, because much of the heat is well deserved, though some of these attacks are trivial and ill-founded.

Sure Obama said he opposed the war when he was outside the senate in 02 but since he became senator there have been 69 votes regarding Iraq war in the senate. Obama and Hillary voted exactly the same except one vote. Hillary opposed to confirm Gen Casey and Obama supported to confirm Casey which was meaningless when came to Iraq war. So Obama and Hillary has exactly the same record in senate. They both voted to fund the war. This myth that somehow Obama is different than Hillary on Iraq war is false. Please do the research and find out more about the candidates. Do not vote blindly.

Obama doesn't go with the flow like Hillary does. Obama stands behind the decision to give illegal aliens drivers licenses, which is a very unpopular measure that helped sink Elliot Spitzer's numbers in NY. Clinton, on the other hand, seem to look at opinion polls before taking a stand on an issue.
In Iraq, at least Edwards apologized. Why doesn't Hil follow suit? She helped get us into this mess.

I would be grateful if you would consistently show the error rate of each of polls you cite. From where I sit, (no reflection on
you) too many are not worth a paper shredder.

You do a great job.
