First poll since the speech: Dead Heat

A number of national polls have shown significant damage to Obama’s numbers since the “Wright” wing attack on him. Prior to the continuous replaying of a few controversial remarks by Obama’s former Pastor, Obama held a 6% Lead nationally. Since then Clinton has moved to a significant lead.

Today the first poll taken after Obama’s speech on race shows a statistical dead heat among democratic voters once again. The Gallup daily tracking poll shows a 2-point lead for Clinton, which is well within the margin of error.

As I expected the leadership and vision Barack Obama showed in that speech has had a very positive effect on the hearts and minds of the American people. That along with the contrasts between taking the high road and Clinton’s win at all cost dirt road strategy, this trend will continue.
