Hillary Clinton is now within three points of Barack Obama nationally. As readers know, I don't follow the Rasmussen tracks because I'm not yet sold on the autopoll methodology; i know many good and smart people who are, though, so maybe I'll be persuaded. Since my polling orientation is Blumenthalian, I'm only making note of the Gallup numbers because Barack Obama's lead used to be outside the margin of error and thus significant; it is now within the MoE.
