Strangely Divergent National Numbers for the Democrats

Some strangely divergent numbers nationally for the Democrats.

If you’re a Hillary fan, you like USA Today/Gallup, CBS News/NY Times, and CNN, who put Clinton up by 12 percent, by 15 percent, and by 13 percent, respectively.
But if you’re an Obama fan, you take more heart from the results in Reuters/Zogby, Hotline/FD, and ABC/Washington Post, who put Hillary up by 1 percent, 3 percent, and 5 percent.
By comparison, on the Republican side, there’s a little more consistency. McCain’s between 28 percent and 33 percent in most polls, Huckabee’s between 17 and 23 percent, Romney has the largest variance between 8 and 19 percent, Giuiliani’s between 9 and 18 percent, and Thompson’s between 6 and 14 percent.
