(CNN) - A majority of Democrats would like to see Barack Obama rather than Hillary Clinton win their party's presidential nomination, according to a national poll out Monday.Fifty-two percent of registered Democrats questioned in a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey say the senator from Illinois is their choice for president, with 45 percent supporting Clinton.The poll also suggests Democrats are more enthusiastic about an Obama victory (45 percent) than for a victory by the senator from New York (38 percent).Full story
Hillary should drop out immediately. No matter how you slice it there is no chance for her to beat out Obama in delegates or popular vote.
So long Hillary.
Anybody seen that picture of Obama cheering Dr. Wright telling his flock to move to Africa? No thank you.Let them stay in America.
Just take a look at who participated in the poll and the results wont be such a surprize...
Wolf Blitzer, Gloria Borger, Anderson Cooper, Jack Cafferty, John King, Candy Crowley, Dana Bash, Suzanne Malveaux, Jessica Yellin, Donna Brazile
Its about time. Lets us see and experience something different. I am sick and tired of the "The Business as usual in Washington" Lord pardon us!
With Republicans mischievously voting for Hillary in hundreds of thousands, Obama is doing pretty well. The Repubs are afraid of Obama.
Really? Why wasn't I included in this so-called poll?
Get your comment in fast before the door is closed.Why are you protecting Obama, Media personnel?Just curious,but are you scared of him?I am.The hate filled racist comments from his church,supposedly for twenty years,terrifies me.I'm white,and he scares me worse than Bush.Can't anyone else see his anti-American,White hating agenda?Be very scared Whitey!!!!!!
America Is Ready
CNN.com moderators. this is not "news", this is a pro-Obama opinion piece. After the minister's words took hold, lots of democrats are questioning Obama. I just don't believe this "poll", any more than I believe you aren't all pro-obama at CNN.
Given Obama's appeal to many Independents and Republicans, this bodes well for his chances in the general election.
That is right my guy.
There goes CNN again. Who cares what the democratic poll says. Let them do it and McCain will win. Period.
Inspiration and hope ARE important. There is so much that is in need of change right now and no one person can do it alone. The president will need the American people to make this change happen. Obama continues to inspire people who have never voted before. As President, he will inspire the American people to work with him to make the changes necessary to turn our ecomony around, improve our relationships with other countries, and value diversity in our country!
If you think we can't change this country for the better, think again!
YES WE CAN!
Finally – someone who confronts the issues head on. Is he perfect? No. The American people aren't seeking perfection...we are seeking change. It is certainly a change to have a politician confront issues (both good and bad) head on.
Yes, we can!
yes and better be this way because even here in florida all my friends and co-workers will not vote for another clinton and democrats may lose the general election one more time. GO OBAMA
Well I have and still like Barack but I also want to know what he is going to do to CHANGE this country. If he doesn't get more specific I will not vote for him or Hillary. Definitley will not vote Republican ,so I probably will leave the Presidents boxes blank and hope we can get enough additional house and senate seats to hold back stupid moves from Mccain until the next election when we may get a better choice ourselves.
Hillary has won the democratic vote by 1.1 million votes. this poll is NOT CORRECT.
Even this divisive content poll has united all of us who participate. For some people, the power of unity will have it's beneficial effect. For others, they will support Hillary.
I will desperately vote for McCain should you CNN steal the nominee for Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
what kind of question is asked? This poll is a stark contrast to other polls
Phillip in Chicago: It took lazy people and lazy media to judge the Rev.on race issues-in just 15seconds.Well Well- it is taking Sen. Obama 20 years to figure the Rev. Out! Do the maths!
Let's follow the rules and stop pressuring the Superdelegates to go for Obama. The "RULES" state Superdelegates can vote how they choose.
These polls mean nothing. It is very obvious by the various blogs that it is mostly the Obama supporters who have time on their hands to respond to polls. Clinton supporters are too busy getting things done.
oh please... give it another day or so... enjoy it while it lasts... it's about to be over
