Gallup Poll Shows Clinton Leading All GOP Candidates

This poll contradicts the Zogby poll:
A recent Gallup poll testing hypothetical general election match-ups showed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama edging out most of their potential Republican rivals in 2008.

The poll, conducted of 897 registered voters from Nov. 11-14, gave Hillary Clinton, who is leading the Democrats in most national polls, an advantage over everyone in the GOP field.

The hypothetical race was closest between Clinton and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Clinton and Arizona Sen. John McCain. The poll gave Clinton a 5-point edge in a match-up with Giuliani, 49 percent to 44 percent. In a race with McCain, Clinton received 50 percent, McCain received 44 percent.

The New York senator held a much stronger lead over former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. She held a 53-40 point edge over Thompson in the poll and a 54-38 point lead over Romney.

The results were similar to those in a FOX News-Opinion Dynamics poll taken at nearly the same time, Nov. 13-14, of 900 registered voters. Head-to-head match-ups in the general election showed Clinton with a 47-43 lead over Giuliani, a 49-40 lead over Thompson and a 50-37 lead over Romney. However the poll showed McCain, with 45 percent, nipping at Clinton's heels, trailing her by just one point.

In the Gallup survey, Clinton's predominance over the GOP candidates remained about the same as it was in a similar poll conducted in June and July. But her lead over Thompson bloomed from 3 to 13 points in the latest poll.

Obama, too, held a lead over most Republican candidates. The poll showed him in a 45-45 point tie with Giuliani. But in a match-up with McCain, the Illinois senator got 47 percent to McCain's 44 percent.

Like Clinton, Obama held stronger advantages against Romney and Thompson, 52-35 and 51-38 respectively.

I know politicians act whores to get elected, but taking money brothel owners, that's novel. I wonder how many of his lunatic fringe supporters know about his views on prostitution:
It's not exactly your average Republican fundraiser.

A Nevada brothel owner is giving Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul his stamp of approval and plans to start raising money for the Texas congressman. Dennis Hof, owner of the Moonlite BunnyRanch near Carson City, says he'll leave collection boxes outside the door so people can drop in their political contributions.

A spokesman for Paul says the politician with a libertarian streak doesn't condone prostitution on a personal level.

But, he says, "it's not the role of federal government and it's not in the constitution for federal government to regulate these things."
