Obama's Updated New Hampshire Numbers

By The Reverend Published: January 5, 2008

Latest Rasmussen poll from New Hampshire....

Barack Obama, fresh from his victory in Iowa, now holds a ten point lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the race found Obama with 37% of the vote while Clinton earns 27%. John Edwards is the only other candidate in double digits, with 19% support. Bill Richardson is the choice for 8%.

Elsewhere the gamblers line is......

Rasmussen Markets data at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning suggest that Barack Obama has a 65% chance of winning in New Hampshire. Hillary Clinton is given a 37% chance of winning (current numbers: Obama 78.0 %, Clinton 21.1 %. At that same time, Clinton and Obama were each given a 50% chance of ultimately winning the nomination (current numbers: Obama 52.4 %, Clinton 46.6 %.) Link

The current numbers were up to the minute at 4PM Saturday.

Here's another new poll that shows Obama up by 12 points.

I'm really holding back from saying what I think will happen from this point on. Don't want to have to eat crow. However, it does kind of look like something rather significant is underway. I can feel the momentum. If these New Hampshire numbers hold up......we're gonna have something very exciting on our hands.

There are debates tonight. Unless Obama comes in drunk, I don't believe his numbers will move anywhere but up.
