    The exact utility of a Democratic survey that includes Democratic non-candidate Gore is unclear. On the other hand, Quinnipiac reports the two-candidate Presidential races with a red-blue-purple geographic split. A DR candidate who wins only modestly in their natural color but does very well in the purple states is likely to be well-placed to win.

    It is getting a little tiresome to see Gore in all these polls, but I suppose you only have Gore himself to blame for that.

    What's inexcusable is not including Edwards in the general matchups. Past polls have shown him on par with Obama, beating every GOP candidate.
