Hillary Clinton went straight to Barack Obama with an apology following a staffer's remarks about any skeletons that may be lurking in Obama's closet, pointing out that she had accepted the staffer's resignation over the disparaging remarks. Obama accepted her at her word, according to his campaign staff, and is moving on without letting it interrupt his campaign plans.
Obama is currently leading the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, the two early primary states often considered key to the process, according to numbers at usaelectionpolls.com, but on a national level Clinton still holds a huge lead. The most recently posted poll results show Obama with 31 percent of the probable voters in New Hampshire backing him with 29 percent showing support for Clinton.
Polls conducted by Strategic Vision show Obama leading in Iowa, 33 to 25 percent with third place candidate, John Edwards creeping up to a 24 percent showing. As polls are updated almost daily, Edwards has pointed out the plus or minus five percent margin of error and the fact the eight percent of the probable voters remain undecided in Iowa, the voters' choice still remains wide open among the three candidates.
Nationally, Barack Obama is polling between 21% according to the LA Times poll and 30% according to CNN.
Polls showing up at PresidentElectionPolls.com, which look at potential match-ups in the national race, show that both Clinton and Obama would be clear winners against any one of the Republican candidates currently leading the numbers. The poll indicates the results of a one-on-one match-up against the top four candidates from the GOP and the top three Democrats.
