Poll: Clinton leads Democratic field; GOP side more muddied
(2007-08-31)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - New polls show Hillary Clinton holds a
strong lead over her Democratic rivals in Michigan, but the picture
on the Republican side isn't as clear.
Forty percent of likely Democratic presidential primary voters
polled by Lansing-based EPIC-M-R-A say they'd pick Clinton, while
21 percent backed Barack Obama and 16 percent favored John Edwards.
Thirteen percent say they're undecided.
Among likely Republican presidential primary voters, Mitt Romney
was the favorite of 25 percent, while 23 percent picked Rudolph
Giuliani.
Fred Thompson, who plans to officially launch his campaign next
Thursday, was backed by 16 percent, while 15 percent said they'd
choose John McCain. Fifteen percent say they're undecided.
The polls of 400 in each party had margins of sampling error of
plus or minus 5 percentage points. They were conducted Sunday
through Friday for The Detroit News and television stations WXYZ,
WILX, WOOD and WJRT.
