It sounds like African Americans are starting to get to know Barack Obama, and they like what they see.
In polls taken in December and January, Democratic African-Americans favored Clinton over Obama by a 60-20 margin. Now Obama leads Clinton among African-Americans by a margin of 44-33 percent. That shift has brought Obama’s overall support among Democrats up to 24 percent, from 17 percent in January. John Edwards holds steady at 12 percent.
