POLL: Gallup Dem Primary, Bush, Congress


Additional results from the recent Gallup national survey of 1,019 adults (conducted 8/13 through 8/16) finds:

  • Among 468 Democrats and those who lean Democratic, Sen. Hillary Clinton maintains her "expanded lead" over Sen. Barack Obama (48% to 25%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails with 13%. Including V.P. Al Gore among the candidates, Clinton leads Obama (42% to 21%), Gore runs at 15%, and Edwards at 11%. All other candidates receive less than 5% each.
  • 32% of Americans approve of the job George Bush is doing as president; 63% disapprove.
  • 18% approve of the job Congress is doing -- "the lowest it has been since Gallup first tracked public opinion of Congress with this measure in 1974;" 76% disapprove.

Andrew:

I spotted an error. Gallup today says in it website that "All three Democrats garner 50% of support among registered voters when pitted against Giuliani, with Giuliani getting 46% against Clinton and 45% against both Edwards and Obama."
But when we take a look at the results table, Giuliani appears with 50% vs. Clinton's 46%.
