Barack Obama, who is maintaining his slight lead in Iowa, has significantly closed the gap with Hillary Clinton in New Hamphire, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll. Earlier this fall, Clinton was up by 20 points in New Hamphire but is now only ahead by 6 points. Still, the poll found that Clintonâ€™s supporters are more enthusiastic and loyal than are Obamaâ€™s. Clinton was also viewed as the most trusted of the Democratic candidates, but Obamaâ€™s surge is because more voters are placing â€œnew direction and new ideasâ€ as a higher priority than â€œstrength and experience.â€
