Poll: Clinton's national lead "collapsed"
A 13-point drop since Iowa leaves the frontrunner with a statistically insignificant lead over Obama.

Hillary Clinton's national lead over Barack Obama in a Rasmussen Daily Tracking poll released the morning of the Iowa caucuses: 17 percentage points.
Clinton's lead over Obama in the same poll today: 4 percentage points.
The poll has a four-point margin of error, meaning, in Rasmussen's words, that Clinton's lead over Obama among Democrats nationwide appears to have "collapsed."
