The polls are starting to show a post-Pennsylvania bump for Hillary Clinton and could buttress her argument to voters in Indiana and North Carolina that she would be the stronger Democratic nominee in November.
In an Associated Press/Ipsos survey released today, Clinton now leads Republican John McCain, 50 percent to 41 percent, while Barack Obama remains virtually tied with McCain, 46 percent to 44 percent.
And in the Gallup daily tracking poll, Clinton leads McCain 47 to 44 percent while Obama and McCain are tied at 45 percent. Also, Clinton and Obama are tied at 47 percent among Democrats in the tracking poll -- a 5-percentage-point gain for Clinton since she won the Pennsylvania primary last Tuesday.
