Shrinkage: Hillary’s License Flip-Flop Hurting In New Hampshire

Rasmussen has its first poll out since last week’s debate featuring Hillary’s, “Yes-No-Yes-Stop picking on me because I am a girl” Festival and it turns out voters weren’t impressed.

It’s not a total meltdown by any stretch and she’s still leading but the margin continues to narrow. She led Obama by 16% prior to the debate, now it's down to 10%

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone poll of the state’s Likely Primary Voters shows Clinton leading Senator Barack Obama by ten percentage points, 34% to 24%. Former Senator John Edwards attracts 15% of the vote while New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson earns 8%. No other candidate tops the 3% level of support.

At 34%, Clinton’s current level of support is the lowest measured in any Rasmussen Reports poll this year. Four previous polls in New Hampshire found her consistently in the 37% to 40% range.

This is the first poll of the race conducted since Senator Hillary Clinton’s debate gaffe concerning drivers licenses for illegal immigrants. In the last poll before that debate, Clinton held a sixteen-point advantage over Obama. A month earlier, Clinton was ahead by twenty-three percentage points.

66% of NH Democrats oppose giving licenses to illegals (which is about the number nationally as well), while only 19% report they support the idea.

The question is, do either Obama or Edwards have the firepower to exploit this opening?
