PRINCETON, NJ -- Hillary Clinton maintains a 48% to 44% advantage over Barack Obama among Democrats nationally in Gallup Poll Daily election tracking for March 3-5.
Wednesday night interviewing suggests that the significant upswing in Democrats' support for Clinton, evident in the days leading up to Tuesday's primaries, has not continued, even after the extensive news coverage Wednesday of her wins in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island. The race has stabilized for the moment as the two candidates look ahead at the potential for long weeks of campaigning leading to the next big state primary in Pennsylvania, almost seven weeks away. -- Frank Newport
