(CNN) - A day after suffering his second-worst defeat of the primary season, a new poll shows Barack Obama is headed for a big win in Oregon next Tuesday.
According to a new poll from the Portland Tribune and KPTV, the Illinois Democrat holds a 20 point lead over Clinton there, 55 percent to 35 percent. Ten percent of voters remain unsure.
The poll was conducted May 8-10, entirely before Clinton's blowout win in West Virginia Tuesday night. There, Clinton beat Obama by 40 points, her second widest margin of victory all year. But Oregon promises to be more favorable for Obama, given its broader swath of liberal and college educated Democrats.
Kentucky, a state with similar demographics to West Virginia, also votes next Tuesday and is expected to hand Clinton another big win.
Both Oregon and Kentucky are bigger prizes in terms of delegates than West Virginia. Fifty-two delegates are up for grabs in Oregon and 51 are on the line in Kentucky. Only 28 delegates were awarded in West Virginia.

Hey...by the way...Obama picked up two more superdelegates this morning! So much for Hillary's "Big" win in WV!!!
this poll has been out for weeks. cnn, you are late and lost. how about the new superdelegates that Sen Obama picked up since last night.
The majority of Clinton supporters will support Obama in November…
Some will not, but I think most realize the stakes, and put that above sour grapes and petty jealousy.
However, most of the folks who keep repeating they won't support Obama on this blog will probably stick to their word. They can congratulate themselves if Obama loses, and smirk for a bit. They can also pat themselves on the back when the US troop casualty count comes in each month, and feel proud they help perpetuate that. They can smile to themselves as the dollar continues to weaken and friends and family can't find blue collar jobs in America, and know they had a hand in that too. As more conservative judges are appointed to the supreme court, they can laugh to themselves and say "yeah, but we sure taught the DNC a leason, didn't we?"
So be proud Obama haters, you are the true Americans aren't you?...
What about the 2 superdelegates that endorsed Obama today! Please report it CNN-even Yahoo is reporting it.
To my fellow Obama supporters, please go out of your way to be nice to Sen. Clinton's supporters. We need all of them to win in Nov, and we're one democratic 'family' after all!
Because they are enlightened out there. They know what is best for the country. BTW Obama has picked up tons of endorsements today (the day after her so called crushing win)
West Virginia will have no affect on how Oregon votes. We love Obama here.
Good. I hope this trend continues. I think Obama is the right candidate for the Democrats.
What ever the polls say really doesn't matter since Obama will lost key votes in the general election. I am an independent and will never vote for him.
To all of you so-called Democrats who promise to vote for McCain if Obama is the nom: don't the let the door hit your hypocritical butt on the way out.
Dems it's time to unite!!!

COME ON OREGON SHOW THE CLINTONS THAT THEY NEED TO STOP DREAMING ABOUT IN THE WHITE HOUSE IN 09. 2004 WAS THEIR YEAR.
As we all closely watch this primary, we MUST remember that the basic electoral process that allowed the elections of 2000 and 2004 be tampered with to insure that Bush would "win" is still in place, still vulnerable to the vast corporate power that in actuality rules this nation. Bush's family friend makes and sells the touch screen voting machines and insists they can't produce a paper receipt for each vote logged...yet he also makes and sells the ATMs that ALWAYS give a paper receipt! We must insist on a paper trail for our votes AND the ability to do recounts! Wasn't it Stalin who said that it is not WHO votes that counts, but who counts them?
CNN WHAT ABOUT THE 2 NEW SUPER DELEGATES OBAMA PICKED UP THIS MORNING...AND ALSO THE ENDORSEMENT FROM THE FORMER SEC COMMISSONERS......MNSBC HAS RELEASED THIS INFO ALREADY...
GO OBAMA...KEEP THEM COMING...30 SUPER DELEGATES IN A WEEK.....
THE WIN IN VA MEANT NOTHING....
All you Hillary supporters voting for McCain are only proving one thing. You are sore losers and are attracted to voting for losers...
OK that was 2 things..
according to Obama's website, he has a total of 1889.5 delegates with 135.5 more to go ! C'mon SDs and Oregon.
Good for Obama. Let's all try to get excited about our nominee!
Oregon – you can do it! Let's see if you can beat Idaho's largest margin of victory for Obama. Can you go for him by more than 79%?? I think so!!
Once these hillbilly states are done pumping Hill with false hope we can move on to the November election. Please Oregon drive the last nail home (again)
Has anyone bothered to read michelle's thesis from college???? Scarey!!!!
Mya....too late...his supporters have said some of the meanest things I have ever heard someone say about another individual....if they all of a sudden start being nice, that's pandering. At least state how you really feel....otherwise why bother? Do you think Hillary's supporters don't get it? We've been fighting an uphill battle for her ever since January when the media love-fest started for him.......we really are not as "uneduacted" as the media has portrayed.....
Hey CNN! What about the 3 superdelegates Obama won this morning?
I guess the people in Oregon have no taste.
