Gallup Poll / Clinton voters moving to Obama

Key Clinton Constituencies Moving Toward Obama

Obama now competitive among women, whites, and the less educated

by Lydia Saad

PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup Poll Daily tracking has documented a surge in Democratic voters’ support for Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton in recent days, swelling from a four percentage-point lead for Obama during the first part of May to a record 16-point lead for him in polling from May 16-18.

Prior to now, Obama’s largest lead over Clinton was 11 percentage points, achieved briefly in mid-April. However, for most of the past month, Clinton and Obama have been fairly closely matched, with neither sustaining a significant lead for more than a few days. It thus remains to be seen whether this improvement in Obama’s standing is a variation of the same pattern, or represents a turning point in the race.
