2008: Clinton 33% Obama 19%

Monday, January 29, 2007

Obama-mania may be fading a bit. Barack Obama (D), the charismatic freshman Senator from Illinois remains in second place in the race for the Democratic Presidential nomination. However, his support has slipped to 19% in the latest Rasmussen Reports Election 2008 poll. A week ago, Obama attracted support from 24% of Likely Democratic Primary Voters. The week before that, at the time Obama was making his interest in the race official, he had pulled to within a single point of the frontrunner. New York Senator Hillary Clinton (D) remains where she has been from the beginning of the race—on top—and her lead has grown back to double-digit status. The latest national telephone poll by Rasmussen Reports shows Clinton with 33% of the vote, 14 points more than Obama’s share.
