No, in fact the opposite. (it's harder to rank, thats for sure!)
We tend to focus on the areas we work so our experiences will admittedly be some what skewed. However, we see Google pulling a head more and more. Yahoo has some serious ranking issues that they mask with hand editing, (lets not debate the merits of it here), in addition to the problem with the penalties, and MSN is the Google-of-3-years-ago.com
I really wish it were a tighter race, but right now technically it's looks to us like a horizon job.
Of course the person who really needs to answer this question is Joe surfer who doesn't know a thing about crawling, caching and fighting spam.
