Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
Barack Obama has seen his polling numbers shoot up in the aftermath of winning the Iowa Caucuses, but his momentum was subdued by a comeback victory by Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire just days later. With contests in Michigan and Florida perceived as beauty contests because no delegates were being awarded, Nevada and South Carolina were the only two other contests to take place before Super Tuesday.
Hillary Clinton won narrowly in the Nevada caucuses on the backs of strong Hispanic support, but still lost in the delegate count to Barack Obama. In South Carolina, Barack Obama doubled up Hillary Clinton on the backs of strong support among African Americans. Obama is the candidate with the momentum at this time, according to the latest polls posted on USAElectionPolls.com
USAElectionPolls.com reported a couple of days ago that the gender gap has been cut by a total of 21 percent in just 10 days.
On February 5, 2008, a record number of states will be competing in caucuses and primaries around the country and Barack Obama has leads in pre-election polls in Georgia, Alabama, Colorado, Idaho and his home state of Illinois.
Georgia is expected to have a large turnout of African American voters, and he has a 16 percent in the state. In Illinois, his lead is approximately 20 percent. In Alabama, he is in a near dead heat with Hillary Clinton. In Colorado, he has a slim lead, 34 percent to 32 percent. In Idaho, he has a 33 percent to 31 percent lead.
USAElectionPolls.com has set itself apart from the rest of its competition with polling data archived by state, date and candidate and has quickly surged atop of the list of polling archive sites on the web, according to Quantcast.com.
