POLL: Fox National Survey


A new FOX News/Opinion Dynamics national survey (story, results) of 900 registered voters nationwide (conducted 8/21 through 8/22) finds:

  • 33% approve of the job George Bush is doing as president; 56% disapprove.
  • Among 335 Democrats, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (35% to 23%) in a national primary; former V.P. Al Gore trails at 10%, former Sen. John Edwards at 6%. Excluding Gore, Clinton leads Obama 38% to 25% while Edwards trails at 8%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • Among 314 Republicans, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani leads former Sen. Fred Thompson (29% to 14%) in a national primary; former Gov. Mitt Romney trails at 11%, Sen. John McCain at 7%, former Speaker Newt Gingrich at 5%. All other candidates receive less than five percent each.

Paul:

On the Democratic side, essentially no change from July. In terms of Republicans, Senator McCain lost more than half of his support, and he is now 22 points behind Giuliani as opposed to 11 points one month ago. In addition, McCain has moved from tied for second to 4th.

No mention of Ron Paul? Are these guy serious?
Ron Paul is a serious candidate with a large and growing following. It is a serious breach of trust that the media does not give him proper coverage.

Rahn, if Paul supports can't figure out how to click the link that says "results," then I'd say the Texan is royally screwed in the primary.

Till Eulenspiegel:

Paul has a growing fanbase of poorly-informed children on the internet. This doesn't translate so well to registered Republicans.

Is the Democratic race tightening? We have two national polls with Clinton's lead at less than 15%, plus the Rasmussen tracking poll which has her up only 38-27 over Obama.

We'll have to get more data, but perhaps there will be a race after all. And I think Hillary's terrorism remarks might be her first real blunder of the campaign.
