In a recent poll conducted by CBS News, Barack Obama apparently has rebounded from the Reverend Wright Slimethrow by the republicans and now has opened up a substantial 11 point lead over the presumed Republican nominee, John McCain. Yes, polls at this time are really meaningless, but something definitely has happened since the republican Slime Machine, headed by the usual slimeball himself Sean Hannity began to use reverend Wright against Obama instead of trying to tackle him on the real issues. Anyway, here is an excerpt from the article and the link. It is dated today, May 4, 2008. (CBS) Democrat Barack Obama appears to have rebounded from some of the damage caused by the controversy surrounding his former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, according to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll. On one key measure, Obama has seen a big reversal since his denunciation of Wrightâ€™s remarks on Tuesday. He now leads presumptive Republican nominee John McCain in the hypothetical fall contest by eleven points, 51 percent to 40 percent. That compares to a tied match-up in a CBS News/New York Times poll that was released last Wednesday. Positive assessments of how Obama has handled the situation with Wright are also reflected by a continued lead over fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton in his battle for their partyâ€™s nomination. Among Democratic primary voters (those who have voted or plan to vote in a Democratic primary) Obamaâ€™s lead over Clinton has increased -- he now leads Clinton by twelve points, 50 percent to 38 percent. Thatâ€™s up from his eight point lead in the poll released just a few days ago. However, among all registered voters who identify themselves as Democrats (regardless of whether they have voted or plan to vote in a Democratic primary) Obama and Clinton are virtually tied -- 45 percent for Clinton and 44 percent for Obama. This is similar to the numbers earlier in the week. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/05/04/opinion/polls/main4069259.shtml The good thing about this is that even if he and Clinton are split right now with each having about the same percentage in head to head, come November when Dems go to the polls they will unite for the candidate against McCain. Democrats have been registering in record numbers this past year.
