Clinton Leads Dems In Fox Poll; Giuliani Tops GOP

FOX News released a presidential preference poll tonight. The results are pretty much the same as yesterday's Rasmusen Reports poll, so we'll move quickly through this. Besides I've got a Browns-Steelers game to watch tonight so I've got to move on in a hurry.

On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton tops the list at 33%, Barack Obama is a distant second at 12%, Al Gore is at 11%, John Edwards scored 8% and John Kerry rounded out the top five at 6%.

On the GOP side, Rudy Giuliani topped John McCain 30% to 23%, while Newt Gingrich (9%), Mitt Romney (8%) and Sam Brownback (3%) finished the top five. Gingrich dropped from 14% in late August and Giuliani gained 5 points on McCain since then.

In one-on-one primary match-ups, Clinton tops Gore by 17 points and Obama by 22 points on the Democratic side.

Among Republicans, Giuliani tops McCain by 2 points. McCain pounds Mitt Romneyu in a one-on-one 59% to 14%. There was no Giuliani-Romney pairing.

In general election matchups, Both McCain and Giuliani would top Clinton by 8 or 9 points, and both Republicans would top Obama, Giuliani by 11 points and McCain by 19.

Gallup also released another poll today, which was a bit unorthodox.

Respondents were asked to name traits they associate with some of the leading Democratic candidates. Gallup than categorized those traits as positive or negative and came up with a snapshot of the candidates.

Obama and Clinton were tops on the "positives" scale while Kerry had the most "negatives.
