Whose Poll is it Anyway? Obama is Both Tied and Ahead (Depending on Who You Ask)

CNN says that Obama [is] losing support, even though Obama and Clinton are tied at 46%, the same as they were a few days ago.  More telling, however, is that this figure is among all Democrats, not just primary voters, those who actually go out and vote.  Among primary voters, according to a new CBS poll (pdf), Obama is up 46% to Clinton’s 38%.

That said, following polls at this point is a little silly, especially since it’s basically impossible for Clinton to get the nomination no matter what happens.  However, a little balance to CNN’s coverage would be appreciated (or any of the media at this point).

Cheers,
Charlie
