Barack Obama Ahead of Hillary Clinton in Iowa Poll … Hillary, There is a Long Way to Go


Not so fast Hillary … don’t start taking drape sizes of the White House or picking Vanderbilt_cmdrnchfout china patters just yet.

Not so fast Hillary Clinton, don’t size the Democratic crown for your head just yet. Not only do you have a Barack Obama on your heals, he has just went ahead of you in Iowa according to a new Washington Post ABC Poll.

Nationally, Clinton is viewed as a candidate of change, with support from 41 percent of Democrats seeking a new direction in a recent Post-ABC poll. But in Iowa, Obama dominates the “change” vote, winning 43 percent of that group, compared with 25 percent for Edwards and 17 percent for Clinton.

Latest Iowa Poll Shows Obama Leading the Pack

In other polling data, Republican Rudy Giuliani beats Hillary Clinton in new poll.

Republican Rudy Giuliani, shown here campaigning yesterday at the NASCAR Nextel Cup Ford 400 race in Homestead, is the most popular presidential candidate in Florida, with 57 percent of voters willing to consider voting for him, according to a new Mason-Dixon poll.

In a potential matchup with Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, Giuliani wins 50-43 percent. Republicans Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney also beat her, although their wins are within the margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

In NH, Mitt Romney leads in the polls.

      And just like Fox News poll that shows Huckabee forging ahaed there is a small statistical problem that no one dares mention in both polls.
