A couple new polls came out recently, and they have mostly good results for Hillary. A Newsday statewide poll shows that New Yorkers would rather have Bill Clinton as "first spouse," as compared to Tipper Gore, by nearly a two-to-one margin (55%-29%). This is sort of good news for Bill’s wife. But on the other hand, the same poll found Hillary in a dead heat with Al Gore for the Democratic presidential nomination, 41% to 39%. Fortunately for Hill, Gore claimed just a few days ago that he is not planning to run for president in 2008.
The same poll finds Sen. Clinton well ahead of both GOP Senate candidates, crushing John Spencer 59% to 28% and Kathleen "K.T." McFarland, 60% to 26%.
Meanwhile, the latest Gallup poll has Hillary cruising to the Democratic presidential nomination. Among registered Democratic voters, Hillary gets 36% of their support, with Al Gore fetching 16% and Kedwards each garnering in the low teens.
