Clinton on the Ticket? What Democrats Say

Slightly over half of Democrats say that Barack Obama should choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate while 34 percent say he should look elsewhere and 14 percent are undecided, according to the Gallup daily tracking poll conducted June 4. The margin of error is 3 percent.

Gallup says that Obama gets a modest lift from having Clinton on his ticket against McCain. Head-to-head, Obama and McCain are tied at 45 per cent each. With Clinton on the ticket, Obama leads 50 percent to 45 percent.

A New York Times/CBS News poll today said Democrats say Obama should pick Clinton by a 59 percent to 32 percent margin while a Rasmussen Reports survey put those favoring that choice at 51 percent.
