POLL: Cook/RT 2008 Primary


Thanks to Charlie Cook, who shares with Pollster.com readers this exclusive sneak-peak at results from the latest Cook Political/RT Strategies national omnibus poll of registered voters (conducted 6/15 through 6/17):

  • Among approximately 380 Democrats and Democratic leaners, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (30% to 20%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 13%, former V.P. Al Gore at 9%.

  • When Gore is excluded, Clinton leads Obama (32% to 22%), while Edwards trails at 16%.

  • Among approximately 330 Republicans and Republican leaners, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani edges out Sen. John McCain (20% to 16%) in a national primary; former Sen. Fred Thompson trails at 15%.

Kate:

I found it interesting that the poll seems to be at odds with the media/blog consensus on McCain's campaign, since the numbers gap between him and Giuliani is becoming increasingly narrow.

J.R.:

The gap between Giuliani and McCain in the previous Cook poll was 1 point, so this one shows a wider, not narrower, lead. Elsewhere on this web site you will see a graph that shows Giuliani has averaged about a 10-point lead over McCain for most of this year.
