New poll: Hillary leads by 12 points in RI


Hillary Clinton leads in Rhode Island, but Barack Obama boasts a bigger lead in Vermont, according to new polls out today.

American Research Group says that Clinton has a 52 percent to 40 percent edge in Rhode Island and that Obama has a 60 percent to 34 percent lead in Vermont.

The two New England states are getting lesser billing among the March 4 primaries than Ohio and Texas, which together have 334 of the 370 delegates at stake. The showdown that today could be decisive in the Democratic race. None other than Bill Clinton, himself, said this week that Clinton needs to win both Ohio and Texas to stay in the hunt.

We'll see if these numbers hold up. Obama's grassroots movement is on the move in RI, and when I stopped by both campaign offices on Thursday, there was a much greater number of volunteers at Obama's office. Both campaigns plan busy weekends of canvassing across the state.
