Clinton is still the only one with more unfavorable rating than favorable. And the only one with +50% unfavorable!
Interesting!

What's even more interesting is that she's the only candidate that wins or ties in every matchup above. Maybe some voters actually support the candidate they believe will do the best job rather than the one they like the most.

Clinton saw a similar rise in national polls after the first go-round with Wright. That, plus her natural bump coming out of PA, account for this. If Obama can still win NC, keep things close in IN and win OR, the numbers should alter again.

I don't think fav/unfav ratings mean much. Lot of people had unfav view of Bill Clinton but still voted for him anyway second time.
With this trend Obama will certainly lose in Nov because of stupid Dems rules for picking up the nominee.
Best year for Dems to win and they will LOSE if BHO is the nominee.
Hillary will have the last LOL!!

If you honestly think a poll today is that predictive of the GE in Nov you should really go back and look at polls in past presidential cycles and then rethink your analysis.

The key to the unfavorable ratings is that Hillary has moved very little, while Obama has moved a large distance into more negative. The "increased" negative ratings have more to do with "increased" familiarity.

Response: This is not surprising. When Barrack Obama fabricates, not infrequently the press core cover up for him. When Hillary Clinton does the same, she gets slammed, and slammed, and slammed, and then slammed some more by the news media. So, no it is not surprising that Hillary Clinton's favorable rating is less then everyone else.
