Campaign 2008 (Feb. 19, 2007)
Hillary Clinton still outpaces her Democratic rivals nationwide as the Democrats’ choice for their party’s presidential nomination: Hillary Clinton outdistances her closest contender for the Democratic nomination for president, Senator Barack Obama, by more than two to one among Democrats and Democratic leaning independents. Senator Obama, for his part, has emerged for the first time in sole possession of second place. He is followed by former Vice President Al Gore and former Senator John Edwards who are tied for third.
