Read the full Gallup analysis

Gallup’s latest “where the Election stands” national poll, conducted Jan. 25-27, shows Barack Obama gaining slowly on Hillary Clinton while, on the GOP side, Mitt Romney is narrowing the gap with John McCain.

Clinton leads Obama 44 percent to 33 percent, down from a 20 point lead she held in Gallup’s Jan. 18-20 survey. Pollsters will certainly be watching to see if today’s ringing endorsement of Obama by Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy provides an important boost as the candidates head into Super Tuesday on Feb. 5. Support for John Edwards is at 14 percent.

On the Republican side, John McCain leads Mitt Romney 29 percent to 21 percent, down from a recent high of 14 percent. Mike Huckabee has 18 percent and Rudy Giuliani 13 percent.
