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."
