Clinton 51, Obama 35
I'm somewhat confused. The overall results show an "undecided" of 13%. But virtually every demographic group has percentages greater than 13%, some very substantial. What gives?

Oops. Never mind. The 13% "undecided" is based on the 'likely voter' sample.

About half the responses to this poll were given before the Wright news broke.
You might argue that it didn't include Obama's speech, but the speech was not as big an event as the release of the videos.
In my opinion, Clinton's lead may be larger than 16% for these reasons.

Yay! My polling vote was counted. They called me last week and asked the questions which are in the PDF. Some of them they didn't ask; i guess that "rotated" means that they rotate the questions among the pollers.
Ah it feels good to be included with a poll finally. Maybe they will call me again in 2 weeks to see if my feelings changed.
Im a full HRC supporter, so most questions I answered HRC, except the one where they asked who I thought was better suited to reduce the income gap between the rich and poor. I said Obama.
Boy, I'm part of a small group of people who were polled:
Age on last birthday: 18-24 --- 3%

Yes you are correct. They were calling me non-stop to poll for the days leading up the Wright news. If I recall correctly, I polled before the Wright news broke - I did vote for HRC , though.

Again, why so many undecideds? I know the election is a ways off, but can't the pollster lean on folks to get some kind of preference?
Does anyone know from the crosstabs if the undecides are overrepresented in one group or another? We've seen suspiciously low support for Obama from Blacks, but perhaps some of Clinton's voting blocks are also not 100% convinced.

Joseph: Crosstabs are in the results PDF.
