POLL: USA Today/Gallup National Primary


A new USA Today/Gallup national survey (Gallup results) of 1,023 adults (conducted 1/4 through 1/6) finds:

  • Among 423 Republicans and those who lean Republican, former Gov. Mike Huckabee runs at 25%, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani at 20%, and Sen. John McCain at 19% in a national primary; former Sen. Fred Thompson trails at 12%, former Gov. Mitt Romney at 9%.
  • Among 499 Democrats and those who lean Democratic, Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama both run at 33% in a national primary; former Sen. John Edwards trails at 20%.
  • All other candidates receive less than five percent each. The margin of sampling error is 5% for both subgroups.

We will provide links once they are available.

Wow about Huck!

Any other candidate would be, but Clinton has just enough support in the big states that I'm not counting her out yet.

I just realized this is a poll of adults, not registered or likely voters. Might help explain the discrepancy between this and other national polls.

Everyone needs to easy up about the Iwow caucus. It was just the first one, Obama maybe just had a louder influential group of supporters that night.
REMEMBER its a LONG race, anything can happen and if you ask me Hillary and Edwards will close the gap if not take the lead real soon.
Sit back and enjoy the ride. Its funny how the media trys to hype up one candidate and influence the vote.

Forgive my ignorance, but isn't this a bit of a small sample size for a nationwide poll? It seems like it's not much larger than the sample for small states like Iowa and NH.

Media hype don't even begin to describe it. Obama's candidacy might be a novelty, but to compare him to JFK or RFK is a leap to say the least.

It's amazing that these so called media pundits haven't once compared Obama's hype to the hype that surrounded Wendell Wilkie's candidacy.

Hilary is far from out. California, NY, Florida. 40% of the votes come from Super Tuesday. Big states big votes. The media is pushing alot of this. Additionally, prior to Iowa or New Hampshire, "the boys" played very, very dirty. It was disgusting politics with them tag teaming her at debates. It is absolutely necessary to have someone in the White House that understands how to successfully navigate Washington. Obama is very scary. His answers demonstrate his lack of understanding of how serious our condition currently is. We do not need a dreamer. We need change and someone who knows how to get it out of a very partisan congress. When Obama said that he would never consider using a nuclear weapon, I was shocked. It is an axiom that you never take your best defenses off the table. We would certainly want to believe that our President would never use a wmd but I sure as hell want them to have it in their pocket to hold to protect us. We do not need, can not have another inexperienced, stupid President.

If we don't have a dreamer...then how do we move forward?

If you do some studying on obama, his entire life has been noted as being a guy who gets people who don't usually like each other to get along. I can show several articles by people who knew him---both conservative and liberal--if you want.

When you say we should not have a dreamer, then shouldn't we claim that kennedy, FDR, Reagan, heck even our founding fathers. Our nation was built on dreams!!

The fact that you called barack obama stupid, means that you have not even tried to research him, or even watch him on the news or the debates for that matter, he is probably one of the smartest candidates we have had in decades.

The only thing you are saying is that you are afraid of change, you want things to remain just as they are because you are doing alright, you don't want to make that next step because we don't know what might be around the corner.

Well guess what hun, strap it down hang on for the ride. At times it will be smooth, others it will be bumpy. But you can't stop the world from spinning foward.

Mike,

You can't stop the movement. I advise you to back off. You have useless statements.

Mike,

When I think about the best place to round up "stupid" people, the first place that comes to mind is Harvard Law School. But where would you find the MOST stupid people at Harvard Law School? Maybe . . . HARVARD LAW REVIEW? OK, now, from that group of really stupid people, who would be the MOST STUPID? Maybe . . . THE PRESIDENT OF HARVARD LAW REVIEW? Which, in fact, is exactly where you would find Obama.

Wow . . . .looks like you're spot on. Thanks!

BTW, the reason he was elected President of Harvard Law Review was, in addition to his intellect, he was able to bring the polorized ideological factions together. True . . . look it up.

This country is making the mistake of its national life. It believes that changing this world will come by being deceived first by a person who's cant is " God is on my side"
A preacher of any faith should know that using the name of God in vain is serious business and no different that using terror comercials and heroism. Any and all men who served this country in anyway is a hero and to use that to make yourself appear to be seperate from other candidates and brag about how patriotic you are because you were in a prison camp is ugly and I hope everyone else can see what ugly will do to this country. Just say no to Elmer Fudd and Gommer Pyle.
