Obama Moves Into The Lead In Gallup Tracking Poll

Read the full Gallup report

Gallup’s Feb.13-15 survey puts Barack Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton by 49 percent to 42 percent, giving him his first statistically significant lead, given the poll’s 3 percent margin of error. Seven percent expressed no opinion. Gallup says sentiment has been shifting towards Obama for several days. Last week, Obama and Clinton were generally within two points of the other each day.

On the Republican side, John McCain leads Mike Huckabee 54 percent to 28 percent with Ron Paul at 5 percent. McCain’s support has been slightly above 50 percent for a little more than a week now, following Mitt Romney’s exit from the race.
