Polls Picking Up an Obama Surge?

The polls are now picking up the enormous Obama surge in New Hampshire -- three polls are now showing a double-digit lead.  Here's the summary from Washington Post blogger Chris Cillizza, whose blog was highly recommended to me:

Polls Picking Up an Obama Surge?

NASHUA, N.H. -- The Fix is sequestered in an Irish pub watching tonight's Republican presidential "forum" but couldn't avoid offering a thought or two about several new polls in the Granite State that suggest Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) received a real New Hampshire boost from his win in Thursday's Iowa caucuses.

In a new CNN/WMUR poll, Obama leads Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) 39 percent to 29 percent, a major change from the 33 percent tie that the same survey showed yesterday. A new USA Today/Gallup poll confirms the Obama bounce, putting him 13 points ahead of Clinton. A new Franklin Pierce/WBZ survey showed a more modest gain for Obama. He led Clinton 34 percent to 31 percent in the latest poll; four days ago he trailed Clinton 32 percent to 28 percent.
