A new Diageo/Hotline national survey of 812 registered voters (conducted 12/10 through 12/14) finds:
- Among 336 likely Democratic primary voters, Sen. Hillary Clinton narrowly leads Sen. Barack Obama (35% to 30%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 14%.
- Among 291 likely Republican primary voters, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani edges out former Gov. Mike Huckabee (21% to 17%) in a national primary; former Gov. Mitt Romney trails at 13%, former Sen. Fred Thompson at 11%, Sen. John McCain at 10%, Rep. Ron Paul at 7%.
- All other candidates receive less than five percent each. The margin of sampling error is 5.3% for likely Democratic primary voters and 5.7% for likely Republican primary voters.
