  • Among Democrats, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads Sen. Barack Obama (31% to 17%); former Sen. John Edwards trails at 12%.
  • Among Republicans, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani edges out former Sen. Fred Thompson (21% to 18%) in a statewide primary; Sen. John McCain trails at 11%, former Gov. Mitt Romney at 7%.

We will update this post with additional links as they become available.

Considering that Obama is at 17 and Edwards is at 12...

Edwards is much closer to taking over Obama than Obama is to taking over Hillary.

Recent MD, RAS, ZOG, IVR, SV-R, and QUIN all have Clinton 1, Obama 2, and Edwards 3. Absolutes and differences vary more than a few points. As to Republicans, Giuliani running 1 with Thompson, McCain and Romney 2nd, 3rd or 4th depending on the poll, with absolutes and differences varying more than a few points. Overall, similar to other states and national polling, Democratic polling is much more consistent after 1st place.

This poll shows a closer race between Obama and Clinton from other polls.

The un-decided's in this poll are 30% Much higher than other polls. To me, it shows they are not pushing respondents to make a choice between the candidates.

There is nothing in these numbers that would indicate that John Edwards, even if he wins Iowa, would win here.

This is bad news for Giuliani. Let's analyze the important states with the most delegates: Florida, California and Texas:

If he loses Florida, he's toast, and he now leads Fred Thompson there by a meager 3 points, before Thompson even officially announces his candidacy. Rudy has not even secured a win in California, where his lead is 6pts. only (against McCain or Thompson, I'm not sure, in the last poll I checked).
Texas is an ultra-conservative state where Rudy will definitely lose. Thompson will easily win the bible states of Alabama, Georgia, etc.
