A new WNBC/Marist College national survey of 978 registered voters (conducted 2/12 through 2/15) finds:
- Among Democrats and Democratic leaning independents, Sen. Hillary Clinton (at 37%) leads Sen. Barack Obama (17%) in a national primary. Former Vice President Al Gore and former Sen. John Edwards trail at 11% each.
- Among Republicans and Republican leaning independents, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (at 28%) runs slightly ahead of Sen. John McCain (21%) in a national primary. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (11%) and former Gov. Mitt Romney (10%) trail.
- General election match-ups pitting Giuliani against Clinton (47% to 45% respectively), Clinton against McCain (46% to 46%), Edwards against Giuliani (44% to 44%), McCain against Obama (44% to 41%), and McCain against Edwards (44% to 43%) are all within the margin of sampling error.
