(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. 😉
