(CNN) — A majority of Democrats would like to see Barack Obama rather than Hillary Clinton win their party’s presidential nomination, according to a national poll out Monday.

Fifty-two percent of registered Democrats questioned in a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey say the senator from Illinois is their choice for president, with 45 percent supporting Clinton.

The poll also suggests Democrats are more enthusiastic about an Obama victory (45 percent) than for a victory by the senator from New York (38 percent).

Ohioans got on the wrong side of this one. I’ll forgive them though in the general. Once we all start lining up behind our nominee Barack Obama. I call it my persistence of hope. 😉

  • Anything in there about Independents?

  • The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll was conducted by telephone March 14-16, with 1, 019 Americans questioned, including 463 registered voters who identify themselves as Democrats or independents who lean Democratic.

    “The same patterns that we have been seeing in recent exit polls are holding true for Democrats nationwide as well. Obama’s biggest support comes from men, younger voters and independents who lean Democratic,” CNN polling director Keating Holland said. “Clinton does best among women, older voters and whites. One interesting difference, unlike the exit polls in many states, there is no difference in the national poll between college-educated Democrats and those who never attended college.”

  • Thank you, Mr. Plunderbund!
