Hillary Poll Lead Collapsing, Including New Hampshire

Significant drop in New Hampshire:
Two new reputable polls of New Hampshire Democratic Primary voters will show statistically significant drops in support for frontrtunner Hillary Clinton, Democrats who have seen those polls said today.

[...]One of the polls shows that the gap between Clinton and Barack Obama narrowed by more than 10 points. Her biggest decline was seen among older voters.

The other shows Clinton's lead over Obama reduced by approximately 9 points.

Its also happening in Iowa:
New polls out today suggest drops in support for Hillary Clinton and tightening races in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two states to vote in the Democratic nomination race.

In a Zogby survey in Iowa, Clinton leads with 28 percent, just ahead of Barack Obama with 25 percent and John Edwards with 21 percent. In an August Zogby poll, Clinton led with 30 percent, with Edwards at 23 percent and Obama at 19 percent.

These numbers might explain why the Clintonistas are getting so defensive:
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign on Thursday introduced a Web site dedicated exclusively to the instantaneous rebuttal of charges or news reports it deems offensive or wrong.

And the day offered a perfect opportunity for the campaign, with a potentially embarrassing mini-scandal: a waitress’s report that Mrs. Clinton had failed to tip after eating at a Maid-Rite diner in central Iowa, an assertion that ricocheted around the Internet on Thursday.
