Obama continues to surge

As matters stand now, it looks like Obama could well be the Democrats' nominee. He has already pulled within 2-3% of Hillary on a Rasmussen poll and 4% on a CNN poll, and bettered her in total funds raised for the primary election by $5.7 million.

Six weeks ago, I wrote, "I suspect that there are nights where Hillary awakens screaming Obama's name with an epithet attached to it." My analysis at that time is being borne out. Hillary can't match the sort of rock star excitement Obama generates (20,000 at Georgia Tech Saturday) and her poll ratings are sagging.

Interestingly, John Edwards runs best against any of the potential GOP nominees at the moment. if Hillary craters, and and it becomes an Obama-Edwards race, it will be a race to the left, where Edwards is currently positioned furthest left.
