From National Review Online:

I hear from David Johnson of Strategic Vision that his company will be releasing a Pennsylvania poll tomorrow .

The poll, conducted April 4-6, 2008 of 1200 likely Pennsylvania voters, shows Clinton leading with 47 percent to Obama 42 percent. Interestingly, in the general election match-up it shows Clinton 45 percent to 42 percent for McCain; and McCain 48 percent to 41 percent for Obama. For the Democratic primary the margin of error is +/- 4.5% for the general election it is +/-3%.

The SurveyUSA numbers Rich posted in the Corner are fascinating, but so far, other pollsters aren't seeing the Hillary bounce that SUSA sees...

UPDATE I: Obama's unprecedented ad buy ($2.2 million per week).

UPDATE II: Potential explanations for the disparity between Quinnipiac/Rasmussen/Strategic Vision and SUSA can be found here and here.  Perhaps Poblano can dissect these numbers for us soon on his thoroughly insightful blog (

UPDATE III: Both campaigns now acknowledge that this race is in single digits.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
