The latest national poll is out from CBS.
I know, I know, national polls don't mean anything at this time. But still, a 16 point lead is pretty impressive. As is the fact that Obama leads head to head match ups with John McCain.
When all registered voters were asked who they favored in a head-to-head general election match up between Obama and McCain, Obama led by 12 percentage points, 50 to 38 percent.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton does not do so well against McCain.
In a Clinton-McCain match up, registered voters were evenly split, with 46 percent backing each candidate.
Finally, the biggest problem with Hillary is simple--people view her unfavorably.
Clinton is the only candidate of the three to have a higher unfavorable rating than favorable rating among registered voters. Thirty-five percent view the former first lady favorably, while 43 percent view her unfavorably. Obama is viewed favorably by 45 percent and unfavorably by 23 percent. McCain is viewed favorably by 36 percent and unfavorably by 32 percent.
