Monitor poll: Obama +1

Barack Obama has caught Hillary Clinton in the campaign for the Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire, according to a Concord Monitor/Research 2000 poll to be published in tomorrow's paper. Here's the breakdown:

  • Obama -- 32 percent
  • Clinton -- 31 percent
  • John Edwards -- 18 percent
  • Bill Richardson -- 8 percent
  • Dennis Kucinich -- 3 percent
  • Joe Biden -- 2 percent
  • Chris Dodd -- 1 percent
  • Undecided -- 5 percent
  • Margin of error: +/- 5 percentage points

The survey of 400 likely voters found Clinton leading among registered Democrats, 36-27, but trailing among undeclared voters, 40-23. There was very little difference between men (30-30) and women (Obama 34, Clinton 32) in the sample.

The survey also asked for a preference if the choices were limited to two candidates. Those results:

  • Obama -- 45
  • Clinton -- 41
  • Clinton -- 47
  • Edwards -- 41
  • Obama -- 46
  • Edwards -- 39
