(CNN) – A new poll out Monday appears to bolster Hillary Clinton's argument that she is in a better position than rival Barack Obama to beat John McCain in a general election match up.
According to a newly-released poll from The Associated Press and Ipsos, Clinton would beat McCain by a wide 9-point margin, 50 percent to 41 percent. But when Obama faces McCain, the two are statistically tied - Obama holds a two point edge over McCain, within the poll's margin of error.
The Clinton campaign has long argued the New York senator has a better shot at beating McCain because of her demonstrated appeal with working class white voters - a demographic that is key to winning several swing states.
People forget Obama was not a person but, rather a movement. If Clinton elects to represent the will of the uneducated, racists, and sypathetic white women then she might win the election against the flawed John Mcain but, WE will lose as a country. This country becomes more facist everyday. Most of you Hillary Supporters are uneducated so look up the meaning of facisism then examine your candidate.
clinton can't beat mccain, because clinton can't beat obama.so who cares about stupid polls,and the corporate media,who are just trying to influence other's votes,and keep the story ,in the news ,for better ratings.clinton can't catch up with obama, so the media and pollsters,try to keep her chances alive,so that they can keep their ratings high,and their pollsters in a job.apparently ,hillary's attempts to tear the democratic party apart,is working to an extent,but, only because she's using negative attacks in conjunction with the republicans' tactics ,that have worked to keep a republican in office,for the last 7 1/2 years.how many lies do the clintons have to be caught in,for their supporters to take notice of it?how ridiculous is it ,that people say they want a better government,then vote for someone that can't tell the truth?sad....
OBAMA'S CHANCE TO SEAL THE DEAL HAS COME AND GONE!!!!!!!
HILLARY WILL RISE TO THE TOP AND BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT!!!!!
WAY TO GO HILLARY!
THANKS FOR STAYING IN THE RACE SO THAT WE ALL GET OUR SAY!!!!!!!
What a surprise that CNN cherry picks one poll that is clearly an outlier from other polls consistently showing that they both run about even with McCain or Senator Obama doing better.
This is ridiculous.
McCain will walk into the White House no matter who wins the nomination because the Dems are too busy shooting themselves in the footses. I will then proceed to put myself in a coma for four years and pray that I have a county to awake to. The most pivotal moment of the campaign season was Romney dropping out for the "good of the party" to maximize McCain's chances. Seems like the best move so far. Think about that one.
For the past four weeks, the opposite was shown in these polls. Why wasn't that making the news? Why does this one poll get more attention than any of the others that showed Obama beating McCain while Hillary was losing to McCain? CNN is biased.
Wow, "Addy" in Indy, if you're going to try and use Barack's nickname to be cute, why don't you try spelling it right..Barry???
Any minor shift in the direction of Hillary is taken as an earthquake in magnitude. A few points and a few wins is called a momentum where she is concerned and so the headlines follow.
People are not getting solid answers from Obama.
With Obama you asked a question and he asks 5 more.
That's his answer.
He's got to give me more than that if he wants me to take
There was never any doubt in my mind. To listen to her is to see the striking difference between her proposed solutions and his seemingly shallow rhetoric. She is my choice....I love her strength and tenacity......the qualities needed along with her superior knowledge......to turn this country around.
RULES ARE RULES:
Obama is in the lead where it counts. Enough said!
If HRC gets the nomination, I've voting for Ron Paul.
ps, by green i mean "new".
ps, just noticed he picked up another super del. 22 to tie it up.
I love this new "go green" movement, don't you?
How can you get the popular vote when you are not popular. Also 62% of the American people think she's dishonest.
Send her back to Bosnia and let her protect us from sniper fire.
Hillary is vulnarable and cannot beat McCain in November. Monica Lewinsky, 1994 Genocide in Rwanda on Foreign policy, Trip to Bosnia, etc could heat Hillary in November especially on Independant voters.

I don't understand why Hillary supporters want to steal an election from the obvious winner?
We know what happened the last time an election was stolen!!!
It's no way she will be ahead in popular vote or delagates come June.
Numbers don't lie but desperate politicians do!!!
I read about a poll, called the Primaries, that says the people think Obama is better. But what do polls matter, right?
I think it would be speculative to say anyone is in the lead in a general election that is more then six months away. I would be saying the same thing if FDR, JFK, or anyone was running for president. I take this with a grain of salt.
There are polls–and there are polls.
Hillary will never win,she is a sore loser and a liar.I hope she never drops out,im having fun watching her cry herself out of the race.Keep up the goodwork Hillary,you are tearing the party apart.
Nice try!!! It will never happen.
This is OBAMA's turn....
Hillary should drop out now while she still have a bit of credibity
Those who think that Hillary can beat McCain should imagine a likely republican add contrasting the footage showing the war prisoner with that of Hillary narrating in vivid details her war-zone experience as she came under sniper fire in Bosnia. Issues of honor, courage and credibility will be raised and the voter will hear her public admission of having lied followed by the question: can America afford to elect an admitted liar for president?
I will make this short... "IF" Hillary is the winner of the Democratic
party, I will vote for McCain !!! Lesser of the two evils, ya know.
GO OBAMA GO !!!
The world needs her :)
FOX NEWS ROUND TABLE SAID IT BEST AND THEY ALL AGREED.
THEY SAID HILLARY IS THE BEST CANIDATE !!
FOX HAS SAID FOR A LONG TIME NOW THAT HILLARY WOULD BE HARDER TO WIN.
OBAMA WAS VIRTUALLY UNKNOWN BEFORE THIS ELECTION AND IN THE GENERAL PEOPLE WON'T TAKE THAT RISK.WITH EVERYTHING THAT KEEPS COMMING OUT A LITTLE AT A TIME THEY ARE AFRAID WHAT ELSE SO WE NOT KNOW ABOUT OBAMA.
WE ALL KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT HILLARY, SHE'S FACED IT ALL BEFORE. OBAMA HAS NOT.
