Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg said he is confident that Sen. Barack Obama will win the election, according to an article by Sam Stein in the Huffington Post.

Mr. Greenberg helped Bill Clinton get to the White House in 1992, and he said he is more confident about Mr.  Obama than he was about Mr. Clinton 16 years ago. 


“For this race, Greenberg has been conducting national polls independent of Obama’s candidacy for his firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner. And the results he has documented, he says, are unprecedented in their consistency,” Mr. Stein said.

Mr. Greenberg said the McCain campaign has shrunk over the past few weeks — especially because of Joe the Plumber and his “socialism charge.” Although, Mr. Greenberg said, exit polls lean toward the Democratics because younger people typically answer them, he went to “two unorthodox locations to give him a sneak peak.”

“‘In the senior centers in Connecticut they have polling places,’ he explained. ‘East Haven is a working class, Italian city, very white. And there are two senior housing projects. They have their own polling places, so I am having them call me with the results. And so if Obama can carry them, I know we are in a relatively strong place.’”
