More Republicans Would Vote for Obama than for Clinton

CNN reported the results of an ABC/Washington Post poll that asked how people would vote in McCain/Obama and McCain/Clinton matchups in November.  Amongst other things, the poll measured the percentages of Republicans and Democrats that would vote for candidates from the opposite party.  These results showed that more Republicans would vote for Obama over McCain than for Clinton over McCain.

In particular, 16% of Republicans said they would vote for Obama over McCain.  Only 9% of Republicans would vote for Clinton over McCain.  The head-to-head matchups showed:

Obama beating McCain 52% to 40% (with 8% undecided)
Clinton beating McCain 50% to 44% (with 6% undecided)

So, these are more datapoints suggesting that Obama is more electable than Clinton in November.
