Washington (CNN) – As both President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton separately criss-cross the country, helping out fellow Democrats on the campaign trail, a new poll suggests that the former president may be packing more of a punch.
A Gallup survey released Tuesday indicates that 53 percent of Democrats say that if Clinton campaigned for a candidate, they would be more likely to vote for that person. That's five points higher than the 48 percent of Democrats who say the same thing about the current president.
According to the poll, Clinton also has an advantage over Obama on this question among independent voters and Republicans. Twenty-one percent of independents said they'd be more likely to vote for a candidate that received the endorsement and support of Clinton, with that number dropping to 12 percent when asked the same question about Obama.
Only nine percent of Republicans said they'd be more likely to vote for a candidate who's received the endorsement and support of the former president, but that drops to two percent for Obama.
The former president has become the Democrats "go-to guy" on the campaign trial this election cycle. Monday he teamed up in Washington State with Democratic Sen. Patty Murray and in Colorado with Sen. Michael Bennet. Tuesday he kicks off three days of campaigning with Democratic candidates in Florida.
Last week he teamed up with Democratic candidates in Kentucky, West Virginia, New York, and Nevada, New Mexico and California.
