Compiled from InsiderAdvantage and Southern Political Report staff
April 21, 2008 — Sen. Hillary Clinton has a significant lead over Sen. Barack Obama with just a day to go until the Democratic Pennsylvania presidential primary, with an unusually high number of voters still undecided.
Here are the results of Sunday night’s poll:
Hillary Clinton 49%
Barack Obama 39%
The poll was conducted April 20 among 747 likely voters in the Pennsylvania Democratic primary. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4%. All data have been weighted for age, race and gender.
InsiderAdvantage’s Matt Towery: “What’s most interesting about this poll is that about of 12% likely voters remain undecided.
“I attribute this to the barrage of negative TV commercials and attack statements coming from both campaigns.
“Over the past decades I’ve observed a consistent pattern: When a campaign becomes a blow-for-blow blood-fest played out in news media, that usually drives up the number of undecided voters. We’ll see with Monday night’s survey if the undecideds will break one way or the other,” he said. Click here for the crosstabs.
