CNN Poll: Obama Above 50% Nationally Against Hillary, Respondents Split On Super-Delegates

A new CNN poll gives Barack Obama the national lead against Hillary Clinton, with a full 52% majority for Obama against 45% for Hillary. This is the first national CNN poll where Obama has broken 50%, though their last poll predated Super Tuesday.

From the internals: Obama and Hillary each to well with demographics that have trended their way in recent primaries: Young voters, men and Dem-leaning independents for Obama, and women, older voters and whites for Hillary.

On the question of super-delegates, a narrow plurality of respondents sided with the Clinton campaign's argument — 49% said supers should vote based on who they think is the best candidate, compared to 46% who say supers should follow the primaries and caucuses.
