POLL: Harris National Primary


A new Harris Interactive online survey of 2,372 adults nationwide (conducted 9/6 through 9/14) finds:

  • Among 769 likely Democratic primary voters, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (46% to 25%) in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 14%, former V.P. Al Gore at 9%.
  • Among 504 likely Republican primary voters, former Sen. Fred Thompson narrowly leads former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (32% to 28%) in a national primary; Sen. John McCain trails at 11%, former Gov. Mitt Romney at 9%, former Speaker Newt Gingrich at 7%.
  • All other candidates receive less than five percent each.

Andrew:

This poll is further proof that primary polls are useless. On Harris, Hillary increased his lead over Obama since August. On the Cook Political Survey released today, her lead over Obama shrank in September from 20% to 13%.

To make things worse for pollsters, Cook found Giuliani with a nice lead over Thompson.

Who the hell should we believe?

I'm pretty sure these polls are completely unreliable if not totally false. Ron Paul gets more physical support than any other candidate wherever he travels. Where are all these people who support Fred Thompson? Why don't we see YouTube videos of them putting up signs? These polls are fake.

In fact the way shes building momentom she will win in a landslide and with coatails bringing in a large number of senators and congresstional demacrats. If your a demacrat this will be the best time since johnson for demacatic power stop acting like kids if your a demacrat. You may not like Hillary but live with it. The Regan era is finally over. Thank God no more Farwell bull****.
