The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination is in single digits again. It’s Clinton at 36%, Obama at 28% and Edwards at 13%.
In the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination, Mike Huckabee attracts support from 23% of Likely Republican Primary voters nationwide and Rudy Giuliani earns the vote at 20% support.
Huckabee now leads in Iowa, Michigan and South Carolina. He’s surged to the front in the last few months as Giuliani and Romney fall away. Some polls have him leading nationally as well.
On the Republican side, it’s down to a three-way battle between Huckabee, Giuliani and Romney. The question is, when will the minor Republican candidates drop out, and where will those supporters go? That could tip the balance.
On the Democrat side, Clinton is now stumping for Hillary.
Alarmed by his wife’s slide in the polls and disarray within her backbiting campaign, a beside-himself Bill Clinton has leaped atop the barricades and is furiously plotting a cure – or coup.
“She’s in big trouble and he knows it,” a top Democratic operative and Hillary Clinton booster told the Daily News.
We don’t necessarily think she’s in as much trouble as reported, but having the best politician ever in your corner can’t hurt. Of course, will Bill Clinton continue to have to rescue her if she’s President? Will Bill really be the one re-elected next year? He may not be officially on the ballot, but he might have the most influence on who the next president is.
It looks like this might just be the most wide-open primary we’ve had in a long time. Of course, polls are subject to change as the process moves along, but it’s interesting right now.
