Buffalo Democrats Favor Hillary

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – A new poll of Buffalo Democrats finds that city residents favor Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 presidential candidacy over that of Senator Barack Obama by a two to one margin, at 39% to 19%.

The survey of 411 registered Democratic voters by Goldhaber Research Associates also broke down results by race, showing that African-Americans support for Clinton is only a percentage point ahead of that for Obama, at 28% to 27%.

Meanwhile, a Marist poll shows Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton outdistancing Democratic rivals Barack Obama, Al Gore and John Edwards in a ranking of potential presidential candidates next year.

And, a Siena Research survey shows two-thirds of Americans think the country is ready for a woman in the White House.
