On the heels of today’s Gallup tracking poll showing Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in a statistical tie, a new Associated Press-Ipsos poll conducted Feb.7-10 has Obama ahead of Clinton by a statistical hair, 46 percent to 41 percent, with a 4.3 percent ,margin of error. John McCain leads Mike Huckabee 44 percent to 30 percent with Ron Paul at 9 percent. The margin of error was 5.2 percent.
In hyopthetical general election match-ups, Obama leads McCain 48 percent to 42 percent, with a 3.1 percent margin of error. Clinton leads by only 46 percent to 45 percent. This about squares with last week’s Time Magazine poll which said that Obama ran slightly better than Clinton against McCain.
