Obama Surging in Latest Polls

Or, Obama got ground game!

From CNN:

Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton is losing ground to Sen. Barack Obama in a national CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released on the eve of critical Super Tuesday presidential primaries and caucuses. The two are virtually tied in Monday's survey, which shows the New York senator has lost a comfortable national lead she's held for months over Obama and other rivals.

The survey also shows Arizona Sen. John McCain as the clear Republican front-runner. Obama, who trounced Clinton in January's South Carolina primary, garnered 49 percent of registered Democrats> in Monday's poll, while Clinton trailed by just three points, a gap well within the survey's 4.5 percentage point margin of error. "Coming out of his overwhelming victory in South Carolina and followed quickly by his Kennedy family endorsements, Obama clearly has the momentum in this campaign," said Bill Schneider, CNN's senior political analyst.

Obama has won support from Sen. Edward Kennedy and his nieces Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg and Maria Shriver, although Clinton has endorsements from former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the daughter of Robert Kennedy, and her brother Bobby Kennedy and sister Kerry.

The poll is consistent with other national surveys during the past few days. A CNN averaging of five national polls conducted in the last few days -- a "poll of polls" -- puts Clinton at 45 percent and Obama at 43 percent. Those five surveys were done by CNN/Opinion Research Corp., Gallup, Pew, ABC and CBS

I would like to make a point to all those who are still on the fence. Althougth Hillary has good ideas she is so strongly opposed by the Republican party that she is unlikey to be able to move any of her ideas into fruition without bi-partisian support. Obama on the other hand actually has the ability to bridge the gap and create real progress in Washington.
