Hillary Clinton leads polls by double digits
It is still very, VERY, early in the race for the White House; but if recent polls mean anything Hillary Clinton is dominating the pack!
The May 4-6 poll found 38 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents saying they are most likely to support Clinton for the party's nomination. Barack Obama is a "clear second'' at 23 percent, followed by Al Gore (with 14 percent) and John Edwards (with 12 percent.)
Clinton has regained a double-digit advantage after an earlier survey found a smaller – 31 to 26 percent – edge over Obama.
And if the name of Gore – the former vice president who ran for president in 2000 but says he isn't running this time around – is removed from the equation, Clinton gains more support: With a 45 – 27 percent margin over Obama.
This really doesn't mean much though. You will remember back in 2004, when a man named Howard Dean dominated the polls and headlines as the likely democratic nominee.
After the Iowa Caucasus, John Kerry took over and lead the rest of the race.
Things are, however, much different this time as George Bush can't seek re-election. In addition, Bush will likely go down in history as the least popular president in US history.
This could be Hillary's year!
