A majority of Democrats *and* Republicans believe that Barack Obama has a better chance of defeating John McCain in November than does Hillary Clinton, according to a Gallup Panel survey conducted March 24-27. Democrats say 59 percent to 30 percent that Obama has a better chance against McCain and, on the question of who McCain would have an easier time beating, Republicans said Clinton by a 64 percent to 22 percent margin. Gallup says the poll also shows “there is a fairly widely held belief among party supporters — including a plurality of Clinton supporters — that the ongoing campaign is hurting their chances of winning in November.”
