Gallup Tracking Poll: Dems Stay Close, McCain Stays Way Ahead

Little change today in Gallup’s daily tracking poll. For the second straight survey, this one combining results from Feb.20 and Feb.22-23, results for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are within the 3 point margin of error, with Obama at 47 percent and Clinton at 46 percent. John McCain retains his better than 3-to-1 lead over Mike Huckabee at 65 percent to 20 percent. Which brings to mind the headline of a story in today’s Chicago Tribune which, referring to Huckabee’s appearance on the “Weekend Update” segment of *Saturday Night Live,* read: “Live, From New York … And Going Nowhere.”
