Another interesting finding in the NY Times/CBS poll came on the Democratic side, where 26 percent of Hillary Clinton supporters cited Bill Clinton as the reason why they supported Hillary, making it the leading reason. This is something I noted when I followed Clinton on the campaign trail. Other reasons given were "right experience" 23 percent (which I would argue overlaps with the Bill justification since the only experience that separates her from her rivals is being First Lady), "she's a woman" at 9 percent, and "she's smart" at 8 percent.
Overall, her over lead over Barack Obama narrowed in this poll from the one taken in October, and now is 44 percent to 27 percent (previously it had been 51-23).
