Obama and Clinton Tied in NH According to New Poll (& McCain Closes on Romney)

Via Reuters: Obama even with Clinton in New Hampshire: poll

Clinton, a New York senator and former first lady, and Obama, an Illinois senator, are tied at 32 percent, with former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards at 18 percent, according to the poll.

Well, so much for the relaxing Christmas for the Clinton campaign…

Meanwhile, on the GOP side, McCain is closing on Romney:

In the tightening Republican race there, Mitt Romney, former governor of neighboring Massachusetts, leads Arizona Sen. John McCain 34 percent to 27 percent.

Just last month most New Hampshire polls showed Clinton and Romney with double-digit leads, USA Today said.

    Personally, I think that the only thing worse for Hillary than Barack winning Iowa would be him coming in a close 2nd to Edwards and then taking New Hampshire. The media would kill to label him “the Comeback Kid” thus further poking a stick in the eye of the Clintons.
