A Good Sunday for Obama

Zogby International's tracking poll for Sunday shows Obama building on his strong advancement in the last few days leading into Tuesday's primaries.

I know that these new polls certainly display some possible building momentum for Obama, but at the same time it has seemed that support for African-American candidates is often overstated in polls, where many Whites claim they will support an African-American candidate, but then often fail to on election day. Unless Obama has a really strong clear lead of over 10 points in some states, then my best guess is that he may well fall short in a number of close poll states. But we'll see what really happens by this time tomorrow night.

Lee Ward:

Momentum is definitely moving towards Obama. Yes, the Bradley effect may kick in, and working against Obama also is the fact that many people vote by absentee ballot, and may have voted a week or two ago, before Obama's 'surge'.

I think it'll be close.
