Poll: Democrat Obama fading to Clinton
A poll of U.S. Democrats showed that Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has more than double the support of her nearest rival, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

Of the 1,125 voters contacted for the Washington Post/ABC News poll last Wednesday through Saturday, 54 percent of Democrats said Clinton had the best chance of winning the 2008 presidential election.

That's more than the 22 percent for Obama, trailed by former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., the report said.

The divide was nearly as strong among Democratic-leaning independents, with Clinton getting 44 percent, Obama 25 percent and 11 percent for Edwards.

Among whites, Clinton leads Obama by double digits but the two run nearly neck-and-neck among blacks, 46 percent of whom said they would vote for Obama and 40 percent for Clinton.

Among Republicans, 37 percent said they expected Clinton to be their nominee's rival, and 33 percent cited Obama.

The poll's overall margin of error was reported as 3 percent.
