Poll Shows Obama Gaining on Clinton

The latest Zogby International poll released today shows that Barack Obama is gaining on Hillary Clinton as the preferred Democratic nominee.

The telephone survey of 439 Democrat voters conducted in the last week, shows that Obama is on 25%, with Clinton on 33%. This is a gain of 11% for Obama since the last Zogby poll 6 weeks ago.

John Edwards is still in third place, on 12%.

And in even better news for the Obama camp, the survey of 1078 likely voters shows that he would defeat the leading major Republican candidates in a Presidential race. Obama leads Rudy Giuliani 46-40, John McCain 44-40 and Mitt Romney 51-29.
