Rasmussen Poll, Clinton and Obama Tied For Lead

A just-released Rasmussen poll shows Obama and Clinton in a statistical dead heat for the Democratic nomination with each garnering 32% of the vote.  Edwards trails a distant third with 17%.  Rasmussen has been projecting the race as a great deal closer than many other pollsters, although the poll is limited to likely voters.

A FOX News poll conducted over the same time period shows drastically different results with Clinton leading at 41% and Obama getting 20%.  The poll covered registered voters.

Several reporters have pointed out the Clinton campaign’s tendency to highlight every state and national poll showing her ahead.  Now that there is a poll where Obama is tied with Clinton, the campaign’s strategy may backfire.
