A rather curious poll came to light yesterday; amongst the current field of Democratic presidential candidates, Clinton has a large lead with 37% to Obama’s 19%, with no one else north of 10%.
However, if you throw Al Gore’s name into the mix, the situation shifts dramatically.
Al Gore, however, could enter the race as the leader. When his name is added, Clinton loses more than a quarter of her support, while Gore is backed by 32 percent.
As much as it hurts Clinton if Gore enters the race, it appears it must hurt the other candidates even more – Clinton holds nearly 40% of the votes now, yet only provides about 33% of Gore’s support. Somebody else is getting squeezed harder. Obama? Unfortunately, the article doesn’t provide enough information.
