The latest Survey USA poll is out and shows the presidential head to heads for Minnesota. It doesn't show preferences for GOP or Democratic candidates. It focuses instead on how the top two Democratic candidates fare against the GOP field.
Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are polling well ahead of Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and Rudy Giuliani. John McCain is ahead of Clinton and Obama in those head to head match-ups.
Where is John Edwards?
It is not a very good poll when you don't include all the candidates. John Edwards consistently polls better against any of the republican candidates than either Clinton or Obama
Probably don't want to blow their two-candidate story going.
