To N.H. Voters
How long can the good news continue?
On Tuesday, a new poll of New Hampshire Democrats found most believe Sen. Hillary Clinton is best poised to beat a Republican in the 2008 election - by a larger margin than in the last poll. Some 54 percent said they thought she "has the best chance of beating the Republican nominee," according to the survey by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center for CNN and WMUR. That was up from 37 percent who felt that way in June of this year.
Overall, Clinton came in first place in the poll, with support from 43 percent of the Democratic primary voters surveyed, compared with 20 percent who chose Sen. Barack Obama and 12 percent who picked former Sen. John Edwards. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson came in at 6 percent, with Sen. Joe Biden and Rep. Dennis Kucinich tied at 3 percent and Sen. Chris Dodd at 1 percent.
The Clinton campaign, not surprisingly, blasted out the news to reporters and posted it on its in-house news aggregator, www.hillaryhub.com.
