Bill Clinton's sojourn to New Hampshire earlier this month doesn't seem to have given his wife much help, according to a smallish-sample poll taken by the American Research Group.
The July poll shows Barack Obama in a dead heat with Hillary Clinton -- doubling his support over the last two months, a major danger sign if true. The poll only surveyed 400 Democrats (with 200 independents) with 5 percent error margin, so it's to be taken with a grain of salt. Still, it's clear Obama's trending upward and Clinton's losing some steam in the first primary state.
A CNN/WMUR poll take about two weeks ago shows Clinton with an 8-point lead over the Illinois senator -- but that's down from a 15-point lead in June. Expect stepped-up activity by Team Clinton in the Granite State sooner than soon.
