Mike in CA:

With a visit today and surge in young voters attending college from out of state, this one's going to be close. Don't count out Barack yet.

Not familiar with Fleming & Associates so don't know how reliable these data are likely to be. But if this is anything to go by here's another state where a massive Clinton lead is simply evaporating. March 4th can't come quickly enough for Hillary. Everything is trending Obama's way and I wouldn't be surprised to see a 4 state sweep. This is change even Bill and Hillary might have to start believing!

Why wouldn't her lead evaporate when all you hear when turning on the news, read the Internet news, or watch TV.... is how great and special Obama is...I'm sick of it.

That is such an illogical argument..the media has made sure that Obama continues to rise, its nothing to do with HRC, Obama is the media star...a great news story that refuses to die...Like I said, I'm really sick of it.

Pawhealer - the main reason Hillary had a commanding lead is name recognition. She's a Clinton, and in most years that by itself would have been enough to win the nomination. Now that there is a viable alternative in Barack, the name recognition isn't enough. Don't blame the media - they've given the Hillary / Bill / Chelsea trio plenty of airtime, probably more that Obama. The media is simply covering this phenominal comeback story - they didn't create it.

Willy,

The press was biased well before the 11 straight wins. Check it out: http://www.cmpa.com/releases/07_12_21_Election_Study.pdf

Even your favorite probama station MSNBC showed that he's received 84% positive coverage compared to her at 47%

The media hates the Clintons. That's fine. Don't pretend it's not true and didnt help shape the race.

Cnn said the 9% lead Clinton has is within the poll's margin of error. I'm not sure I've ever heard of a reliable poll that atleast a 9% MOE.

Rasmus:

-.- an error of 4,5% would be enough...
but yes, a 4,5 MoE is still a little bit high, probably a sample size of 450-500.

Pawhealer - I can't stand Fox or MSNBC, so I can't judge how fair their coverage is. Most of the time I watch CNN. The negative press I hear at CNN centers around how bad her campaign has been managed. I think she deserves that criticism. During this losing streak she has come up with one lame excuse after another for her losses. CNN has criticized her for this as well and justifiably so. The stories on Obama center around how well his campaign is run (they've been prepared for the caucuses, they've raised unheard of dollars, etc.) Just today Obama had a rally in RI that 6000 people attended. Hillary had a rally at the exact same spot last week and drew 2000 supporters. This was reported on CNN today. I see this as simply reporting the facts. I'm guessing you see this as another example of Hillary bashing.

If the media was really against Hillary, we'd be hearing about all her past scandals. I'm not seeing that - not on CNN anyway.

In the spirit of full disclosure - I'm voting Republican this Nov so I don't have a horse in this race. But I must admit, this democratic race has been must-see TV.
