(CNN) - While all three presidential candidates are locked in a dead heat in potential matchups, a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll suggests voters see major differences in each of their personal qualities.
When it comes to bringing about change, a majority of Americans - 56 percent - say Sen. Barack Obama will be able to achieve that task; 49 percent say the same for Sen. Hillary Clinton; and 39 percent say that for Sen. John McCain.
Survey respondents also ranked the Illinois senator highest - 65 percent - when asked who would work with both parties to get things done, compared with 56 percent who say McCain would and 52 percent who say Clinton would.
– CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney
Obama is a Black Dr Jeckle and Mr. Hyde not fit for the Presidency. You are, whom you keep company with. That are professed leaders of their race. Bigot and overt racists.
Yeah one is a white male, born and bred for leadership.
One is a black male and would be great at sports, except hockey.
One is a woman and should be making us a pie.
Obama,s change--- now hear this,now hear this, all whites to the back of the bus!Oh yes, change you can believe in.
We don't care about Hillary.
GO OBAMA MAN GO PRESIDENT FOR 2008 OR NOTHING.
Obama will give us CHANGE alright!
The sampling error of your survey? 25% +/_ – it is not clear who you sampled?
Good Poll!!!!!!!!! I agree
Perhaps John Murtha should have read this article BEFORE he endorsed clinton.
Woohoo! That's right he will bring about change. I will bring about change too if he's elected. I guarantee most others will feel the same way, yes WE can–and WE will.
Perhaps John Murtha should have read this article BEFORE he endorsed clinton. If clinton steals the nomination with her 'politics as usual' dirty tactics, John Murtha can know that by doing so, he has helped "seal the deal" for John McCain! Mr. clinton's wife cannot win against McCain.
I listened to Obama's speech. For me, he failed to address why he has attended a hate-mongering church for the past 20 years. It's all fine and good to say that you know different aspects of a person. But the bottom line, you do not attend a church for 20 years that goes against your values. Obama talks a pretty line, but actions speak louder than words, and his actions point to his true character. He is very intelligent, and he obviously knows what people want to hear. The time for leaving that church, on principal alone, was the first day the reverend ever spoke such hate and racist talk, which I'm sure was 20 some years ago. Had Obama been the man he portrays himself to be, he would never have been a member of that church to begin with.
Let see if Hillary ever told us a Lie? I looking forward to reading her white house documents
Qualities?!? Are you serious?
This election is like a "Twilight Zone" episode where everyone has been hypnotized into a cult.
"HOPE", "CHANGE", "YES WE CAN".
Hope in what?
Yes we can what?
Can ANY Obama supporter seriously answer any of these questions?
Wow... 56% of Americans! That's the first GOOD NEWS I have about Sen. Obama in a week!
I just heard on Bill O'Reilly's show that Hillary's supporters are boycotting on blog site because Obama's supporters are so mean. BUT I have read mean and hateful things on this blog plenty from Hillary's supporters.
Time to unite Democrats, before you self-implode!
Barrack Obama is a great leader and it took much courage to make the speech he made today and not back down to the cynical people who thrive off hate.
Remember, Martin Luther King was also mocked and attacked when he made great speeches. Those same people will now say he was a great leader.
It's no surprise to see the hate filled cynics from the Hillary and Conservative camps so hurtful and attackful. Just more proof that their is still a great divide in our society with regards to race, gender, and religion while America stands for diversity.
I can tell you I am not proud of this country when I read so many Americans and their hate speech on these blogs.
If Obama is not the nominee than I will vote for McCain.
He's the antichrist, she's the wicked witch of the west, and McSenile is looking better every day............
Let's boot 'em all and start over.
Donald Duck '08
Maybe those folks who think McCain is all that and a bag of chips should read the Ticker item about Iran above. :) There's your foreign policy pro, hard at work.
OBAMA 08 – I'M READY FOR CHANGE
LET'S GO AMERICA-DON'T BE AFRAID OF CHANGE...CHANGE THAT WE NEED NOW!! DO NOT BUY INTO THE HILLARY SCARE TACTICS. AS THESE DAYS GO BY, IT SEEMS SHE WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET THIS NOMINATION. THIS SO CALLED "GOAL POST" KEEPS ON MOVING AND MOVING AND MOVING!!
i believe obama can bring about change in america.he is the candidate to watch out for.
Very interesting. What this says to me is that the American people like Obama more, but still have reservations about his preparedness to be Commander-in-Chief. –Obviously, this is where Obama needs to direct his campaign.
wao , and i believe there is more to come from obama if dems think that obama will beat mc cain forget it . obama clearly lie , i belive he loss the white vote you cannot trust him , and he talks about jugdment he prove he does not have any , this prove you can never critisize some else without lloking at yourself in the mirror.
there won't be any change, with obama he is not for the presidency. there is racial tensions because some churches like his keep the feelings raw and keep the conroversey over race live and well in his church. and in the public with his speeches of memories of the past. how can you be for the future if this is what you dwell on, and it doesn't heal the nation it was getting better but i think him running and bringing up mlk and and allthe bad things from years ago stirred up the hatred . let it be heal yourself and move on. obama you are into too much controversey with the pastor , your flip flopping saying one thing to people than telling the canadians it is anly politics. you are trying to say all the right stuff everyone wants to hear but you don't take stands with your pastor, resko, or any decisions that are hard.
This poll is an Old one, Obama losing support faster than they can post it . Even after his speech today he lost more ground. His Campaign is done. Hillary wins PA, and the tide goes her way from there.
one is for truth and change..............the other is not and twist things for their own betterment
