Mike Huckabee is the GOP's best bet to beat Hillary Clinton in the general election, according to a Zogby poll released today. In an online survey of over 9000 likely voters, Huckabee received 44% to Clinton's 39%, the biggest lead among all of the Republican candidates. In a Clinton matchup with Romney or Giuliani the race becomes tighter, both GOP candidates with a narrow lead of 43% to 40%.
A new Zogby Interactive survey shows Democrat Hillary Clinton of New York would lose to every one of the top five Republican presidential contenders, representing a reversal of fortune for the national Democratic front–runner who had led against all prospective GOP opponents earlier this year.
The online survey included 9,150 likely voters nationwide, and was conducted Nov. 21–26, 2007. It carries a margin of error of +/– 1.0 percentage points.
