Obama: The Aura Of Inevitability

Read the full USA Today/Gallup poll

The USA Today/Gallup poll says that 82 percent of Republicans and 70 percent of Democrats now believe that Barack Obama will be the Democratic Party nominee. The poll was conducted Feb.21-24 and has a 2 percent margin of error. When this question was asked in January, 41 percent said they thought Obama would win to Clinton’s 36 percent. Obama is also perceived by both Democrats as having the best chance of beating the Republican candidate in November, while 66 percent of Republicans say McCain could beat Clinton, but only 18 percent think he’d win against Obama.
