As I mentioned after the Iowa caucus its a LONG race. Obama is trying to gain steam again! It might happen again but it wont last long. Dont get me wrong I like the man, he SAYS alot of good things, but actions speak louder then words. I see him more of a Vice President.
Hillary will win the Democratic primary at the end. Plus she has the best chance against Republican party, because of that she already has my vote.

These numbers show a major improvement for McCain, presumable based on his strong showing in New Hampshire.

Hillary has the best chance against republican, NO WAY!

I am a democrat and wont vote for her even if she is the nominee... Her politically motivated vote for the war disgust me and she'll never get my vote. Her lies and distortion of the record speak louder than her lack of action.

That would be some trick, Dan, since the polls were conducted Monday.

Paul:

First, I do not believe some or all of the Democrats are campaigning in Florida (delegates stripped due to early primary) --- if this is the case, I do not believe the Democratic polls in Florida should be reported. As to SC, in the last month IA has McCain +11, Huckabee +10, Thompson -12, and Giuliani so McCain and Huckabee up, Thompson and Giuliani down --- that is what I see as important from these polls.

I don't trust Obama. He's racist and undermining.. it'll show in the results.
Hillary is most intelligent.
Kerry's a has-been. Yahoo and pollster, what's with your agenda?? The only Clinton news is brief, negative or quickly deleted.
