Obama’s popularity declining

The latest Pew Research Center poll found that among registered Democrats and voters likely to lean Democratic, 47 per cent said that they favoured Barak Obama compared with 45 per cent who backed Hillary Clinton.

That’s a marked difference from the results of the survey conducted in March, when Obama with 49 per cent support had a 10 point lead over his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The tightening Democratic race reflects a modest but consistent decline in Obama’s personal image rather than improved impressions of Clinton, with fewer Democrats ascribing positive qualities to Obama than did so a month ago.
