Clinton, Obama dead even for fifth straight day

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/29/art.split.gi.jpg caption="Obama and Clinton are locked in a dead heat."]

(CNN) - For the fifth straight day, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are statistically tied in Gallup's national tracking poll, the latest indication the Democratic stalemate shows no signs of ending four months after the primary season began.

Clinton holds a one point lead over Obama in Tuesday's tracking poll - a statistical tie, given the poll's 3 point margin of error. In the last five days, the two candidates have either been exactly tied or separated by only one point.

That trend marks a clear departure from the weeks before the Pennsylvania primary, during which Obama almost consistently held a wide lead over Clinton. Meanwhile, the five-day tie is one of the few times all year in which the two candidates have been deadlocked for more than two days.

    Wow, it'd be interesting to see what the difference would be if the media did it's job for the better part of the past year and actually released the true information along time ago about the messiah-wannabe, BHO.

    Clinton supporters,

    Don't you ever ask yourselves why the GOP is running ads against Obama? They want Hillary to win the nomination. Then all the skeletons Obama has kindly left undisturbed in her closet will come toppling out. Between her confrontational personality and her legacy of lies and scandals, she is simply not electable. If you want to end Bush policies, it's time to let go of your racial fears and embrace Obama as the Democratic candidate.

    I love the wisdom of the "Uncle Sam" posts.

    This one was too complex for the smart and educated Obama supporters to grasp... so I am reposting it to give them another crack at informed reasoning.

    True believers in an Obama presidency are prepared to support their candidate regardless of the growing number of questions being raised about him. They would have us believe that everything we need to know about Barack Obama can be found on his website or in his autobiography. Only what Obama tells us about himself is to be believed. Anything else is a manufactured political distraction. So what are you going to believe – the Obama script or your lying eyes?

    Change you can believe in…….change I can believe in…….
