Three new Rasmussen Reports automated surveys released this week find:
- Among 800 likely voters, Sen. Barack Obama (at 43%) runs within the margin of sampling error of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani (46%) in a national general election match-up (conducted 4/18 through 4/19).
- Among 1,000 adults, 59% favor Sen. Hillary Clinton's plan to raise taxes on the wealthy if she is elected; 31% oppose (conducted 4/22 through 4/23).
- Among 800 likely voters, 49% have a favorable opinion of Sen. John McCain, "a dramatic decline from earlier polling" (conducted 4/23 through 4/24).
- Among 800 likely voters, 57% favor either a firm deadline for withdrawal or an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq; 35% oppose both (conducted 4/23 through 4/24).
