Rasmussen Poll: McCain National Lead Growing

Republican John McCain’s lead against both potential Democratic presidential opponents is growing, according to the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday.

McCain currently leads Barack Obama 49 percent to 42 percent, and Hillary Clinton 51 percent to 41 percent. That’s an increase of two percentage points for McCain over Clinton since yesterday, and one point for McCain over Obama.

A week ago, McCain was tied with both Clinton and Obama.

Rasmussen Reports also found that African-American support for Clinton has collapsed, falling to 55 percent in a general election match-up against McCain. Obama, on the other hand, earns solid support from African-American voters but attracts only 36 percent of white voters in a match-up with McCain.

Over the past month, McCain has gained ground in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Colorado, and New Hampshire.

In the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, Obama now leads Clinton 46 percent to 43 percent, according to Rasmussen. Before the story broke about his former pastor Jeremiah Wright, Obama led by eight percentage points.
