POLL: Gallup Democratic Primary


New results from the recent Gallup national survey of 1,010 adults (conducted 10/4 through 10/7) finds:

  • Among 488 Democrats and those who lean Democratic, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (47% to 26%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 11% -- "each candidate's support is the same or varies by only 1 percentage point compared with a Sept. 14-16, 2007, poll." All other candidates receive less than five percent each.
  • Favorable - Unfavorable Ratings

    Democrats and Democratic Leaners (n=488)
    Clinton: 81% - 14%
    Obama: 70% - 17%
    Edwards: 69% - 14%

    All Adults (n=1,010)
    Obama: 54% - 27%
    Clinton: 51% - 44%
    Edwards: 48% - 31%
  • "Notably, the current poll finds Clinton with a favorable rating above 50% among all Americans for the first time since May."

Obama: 54% - 27%
Clinton: 51% - 44%

How can people look at favorability numbers like that with a straight face and say that Clinton would be the stronger general election candidate?
